  • This right here must have been what Zildjian used to create their “vintage vibe” AVEDIS Series.  

  • Which they charge $425 for. 

  • But no one needs to spend all that.  And you can actually have THE REAL ONE! 50 years old. Not the imitation. 

  • Dark. Dry.  With an organic natural DARK patina and a gentle softness. 

  • This is one of the most well-balanced Zildjians you will find. That I guarantee. It’s not a heavy Ping-style Ride. This one is very mellow and has a light softness to it with a sliver of warmth, but just for a moment. 

  • The stick attack is DRY for a 60s A and the ensuing wash is very controlled - compliments of that half-century-old patina.  The pitch is medium-low and the overtones are brooding and dark.  
  • A fantastic weight at 2123 grams.  Very RINGO - ish if you crash rode on it. And that makes sense, it’s a Vintage 1960s Zildjian Medium Thin 20”!

  • It’s a killer-sounding Mellow DARK Thin or Medium Thin Ride.

  • Crash on the edge and you have a glorious DARK FULL 20” CRASH or CRASH RIDE. Perfect as when you need one big crash, or great for creating a Beatles Wall-of-Wash Crash Ride tone!

  • Dark Medium Thin Main Ride. Big Dark Crash. Left Side Mellow Crash Ride. This half-century-old Zildjian can occupy many positions in the field.

  • No issues.  Light wear. Amazing dark patina. A pinch of center hole wear because someone played this beauty a lot because it’s a great one. 

  • Vintage As are always in style. And this is one of the nicest Dark ones.
