About This Listing

A Avedis Zildjian A avedis used cymbals are in stock.

From the manufacturer:

‘A Zildjian’ cymbals began with Avedis Zildjian III. Popular music of the 1930s-1970s demanded cymbals of extreme versatility: dynamic and controllable HiHats, clean and cutting Crashes, thrilling and rich Rides, all with a loose feel and immense musicality. It was these cymbals, crafted by Avedis Zildjian III in the mid-20th century, that helped drive the beat of an era that changed music forever. These unique sounds were instrumental in driving music into a period that not only shaped popular culture, but transformed the way we hear music.

Zildjian ‘A Avedis’ cymbals are a vintage recreation of that timeless sound and feel. With a broad weight variation among each model, selecting an "A Avedis" cymbal is a personal experience. While you search for the cymbal that "speaks to you", you can stay true to that one-of-a-kind sought-after vintage sound. "A Avedis" cymbals have a sound different from every other Zildjian cymbal, complex yet familiar, with a great balance of bright and dark overtones. The timeless individual "aged" patina, classy and understated "Avedis" logo, and gram weight of the cymbal handwritten underneath the bell complete the package.

* Notes on handling the A Avedis series This cymbal is finished with a unique color like a cymbal that has been used for decades by a special manufacturing method. Each piece has a different color, but it is not a product defect. To maintain the unique color and luster of this cymbal, do not use a cymbal cleaner or other cleaning solvent on this product, and wipe off any dirt on the cymbal with a dry cloth. Do not store the cymbal in direct sunlight and in hot places as it may change the finish of the cymbal. Also, do not put tape or seals on the surface of the cymbal. In terms of sound, it is a new sound reproduced with modern technology using a vintage A as a reference.

There is some dulling caused by handling, but this has no affect on the sound. There is a difference from the real thing depending on the lighting condition. 

About used cymbals:

At Mion Instruments, all cymbals are cleaned immediately upon arrival. We then test them to ascertain their sound after which we wipe off any fingerprints so that they are delivered to the customer in the cleanest possible condition. There are times when we judge excessive cleaning will change the tonal characteristic of the cymbal in which case we might leave the patina as it is.Â
