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. The A Avedis HiHats feature a Medium bottom cymbal that is a little bit heavier than the Thin top in order to deliver that prominent chick sound.
This new addition to the Zildjian “A” Family is a vintage recreation of the timeless sound and feel heard and played on thousands of top hits from the 30’s through the 60’s, from swing to bebop to the explosion of rock & roll. Named in honor of Avedis Zildjian III, the father of the modern American cymbal, this legendary sound has been remastered and is now available for a new generation of drummers.
