Introducing the “A Avedis” collection, a new addition to the legendary Zildjian “A” family of cymbals. Reminiscent of cymbals from the 30’s through the 60’s, yet distinctly modern and relevant for today’s music, this line is a vintage recreation of the timeless
sound and feel heard and played on thousands of top hits throughout the 20th century by the biggest drumming icons.
The “A Avedis” line is named in honor of Avedis Zildjian III, the father of the modern American cymbal. His innovations, crafted here in America, helped form the backbone of popular music,
from swing to bebop to the explosion of rock & roll.For the first time, this legendary sound has been remastered and is now available for a new generation of drummers.
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.
Find the cymbal that "speaks to you" as there is a broad weight variation among each Thin model (1,190g - 1,361g) with the gram weights written underneath. So selecting an A Avedis cymbal is a personal experience.
