Reminiscent of cymbals from the 30's through the 60's, yet distinctly modern and relevant for today’s music, the A Avedis collection is a vintage recreation of the timeless sound and feel heard and played on thousands of top hits throughout the 20th century. Named in honor of Avedis Zildjian III, the father of the modern American cymbal, this collection is thin and loose with a played-in feel and immense musicality. Each cymbal features a patina finish that reproduces the look of a decades-old cymbal with gram weights written under the bell on every A Avedis.
Recognized by their striking brilliant finish, A Custom cymbals feature unique tonal grooves and lower profiles. Together, these attributes produce a smoother, glassier and brighter sounding cymbal with more give when struck. It is these qualities that have made the sound of A Customs particularly sought after in the studio.
