A premium Zildjian cymbal line, A Avedis series cymbals harken back to the Zildjians of the 1950s. Handcrafted in Zildjian’s Norwell, Massachusetts, factory, each cymbal receives vintage-style lathing to give you smooth response and an outstanding, highly musical, played-in feel. Weight variations among models let you select your signature sound (the gram weights are written underneath the bell). Patina’d finishes add warmth while making the cymbal appear decades old. To assure authenticity, each cymbal bears a Zildjian hollow logo on the cymbal bottom, a rolled-in trademark, and a small Avedis signature logo taken from the elder Zildjian’s 1939 passport. Sweetwater drummers are in love with A Avedis series cymbals. They look and sound gorgeous and play superbly.
