    Vintage 1950s - 1960s Avedis Zildjian cymbals 14H / 16C / 20R (updated w gram weights)

    Vintage 1950s - 1960s Avedis Zildjian cymbals ~
    in excellent condition and look incredible with beautiful hammering throughout.
    they all sound killer on their own and work beautifully together as a set.
    they come from an older widow whos husband played in the 60s, i tried to google him but no results.


    here are the specs:


    - 14" hi hats - 60s stamp, matched pair - 812g top and 834g bottom
    - 16" crash - 60s stamp - 1010g
    - 20" ride cymbal - 50s stamp - 1836g (SO NICE) - (slight keyhole - see pic)


    the hats are buttery warm with a great foot chick, focused sticking and a nice sloppy open sound. the 16 is great, that mellow dark but still strong enough to cut through practically in many situations. the ride (i love it!) sounds fantastic. the sticking kills me, builds nicely and the crash opens so subtle into as wide a wash as u want. awesome stuff!
    ?

    selling these for a great price -?
    14 hats - $199 + ship?

    20" ride - $199 + ship?
    16" crash - $159 + ship
    or

    ?let me know if you are interested?
    thanks

    Good luck with those. I recently found a similar set myself from on "old source" with medium light 20" ride and 18" (C/R) 1950's large stamps and matched 50's 14" hats 735/750. And I just love them. They work so well together for most anything. Your set reminds of these. My only regret was that there was no matching 16".
