NO

nicks, cracks, dings or dents on this 20". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a light patina starting to form - which is a beautiful thing on these AVEDISES!! 

Here's what Zildjian has to say about their Avedis 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!!!!

This particular 20" is a bit DRIER than some others I've heard!!  

The weight is a THIN 1864 grams which ensures a lovely, billowing wash - the best I've heard so far in this Avedis Line. Because of the thin-ish weight this 20" actually plays like a big CRASH RIDE.  Again, the wash is prominent on this 20", but it doesn't overpower the lovely attack, nice and defined--and the wash has a generous fullness to it.  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 low with a pinch of shimmer on top!!   

It plays like a broken in Zildjian - softer than a modern A series or Armand for sure.

This Zildjian Avedis 20" 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 20" Ride or Crash Ride.

And if you want a vintage sound from a modern cymbal then look no further.

DARK. Semi-DRY/ CRASHABLE. RESPONSIVE!! 

So do yourself a favor and get this ONLY 1864 gram, VERSATILE slightly dry Zildjian "Avedis" 20" Crash Ride. And hang onto it.

It really does sound like a THIN Vintage A!
