Zildjian 20" A Avedis Ride Cymbal

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.
