nicks, cracks, dings or dents on this 21". It's in GREAT SHAPE!! VERY, VERY  CLEAN! 

This beauty has a SUPER played-in, MELLOW vibe to it! Light and airy. 

Here's what Zildjian has to say about their newest line:

"This new addition to the Zildjian “A” Family is a sonic recreation of the vintage "A" sound from the 1950's.  Each cymbal in this collection delivers immense musicality and features a thin, loose, played-in feel with a great balance of bright and dark overtones. 

We added a variety of intricate details to make this collection truly something special including its timeless, individual "aged" patina to the classy and understated "Avedis" logo, to the original hollow "Zildjian" logo underneath."

It truly does sound like a Vintage A, the attack is almost exactly the same as you'd find on an equal weight 50s/60s/70s Vintage Zildjian.  And that "Aged" finish sure does look nice and mellow out the vibe!!!!

The weight is 2238 grams which ensures a very nice stick attack without being overly ping-y.  Because of the medium thin weight this 21" actually plays like a huge CRASH RIDE.  Again, the stick attack is prominent on this 21", nice and defined--and the wash has a lushness to it but overall remains subtle and CONTROLLED.  And when you shoulder it it unleashes a glorious OLD SCHOOL type of wash-Beatles-ish all day!

The bell measures 5.5" and is definitely strong enough for "the latin thing", and even blues, rock and funk. The overall pitch of this Zildjian is medium thin to medium. 

It plays like a broken in Zildian-softer than a modern A series or Armand for sure. This particular one has a subtle liveliness to it! 

This Zildjian Avedis 21" is a workhorse cymbal.  PERFECT for classic rock, pop, country, funk, fusion, R&B, definitely soul, blues, big band, swing, live situations and anytime you need a well balanced Zildjian 21" Ride or Crash Ride.

And if you want a vintage sound from a modern cymbal then look no further. But it WON'T cost you $405!

So do yourself a favor and get this great condition, MELLOW sounding, LIGHT and AIRY,  perfectly weighted 2238 gram Zildjian "Avedis" 21" Crash Ride. And hang onto it. It really does sound like a Vintage A!
