Reminiscent of cymbals of the 30’s through the 60’s and yet distinctly modern and relevant, the A Avedis Cymbals from Zildjian are a vintage recreation of the timeless sound and feel produced by some of the biggest drumming icons of the 20th century. Named in his honor, Avedis Zildjian III helped form the backbone of popular music, from swing to bebop to the explosion of rock and roll.
A Avedis cymbals are an extremely versatile set of cymbals that are 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 broad weight variations among each diameter, selecting an A Avedis cymbal is a unique experience. Gram weights of each cymbal are written underneath the bell. A reproduction of Avedis Zildjian’s signature and an old “rolled” trademark appear on the top of the cymbal, along with a vintage “outline” Zildjian logo underneath.
This pair of A Avedis Hi-Hats produces dark articulation, a smoky wash and a soft "chick" sound.

Comments about Zildjian A Avedis Hi-Hats:
I cannot believe these aren't more popular! I ordered these in the 16" variant, and these are definitely the standard of 16" hihats. They sound exactly like they should. These are not just beautiful to look at, but they sound just as good. They really have a surprisingly nice staccato sound for a pair of big hats when played closed, and the sizzle when played half open is the best I have ever heard on any pair of hihats. They also really cut through when played with the pedal, so are excellent for bebop music where the hihat is used melodically. As advertised though, these are extremely versatile, and can really be used for all genres. Another thing I like is that they are thinner than most hihats so can also easily be played in quieter environments as well.
