A Avedis HiHats are made thinner in weight, and
finished with an "aged" patina to re-create the look and sound of
vintage A Zildjian cymbals.
‘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. For the best experience, visit your authorized Zildjian dealer
