For sale is a vintage Zildjian Avedis 20" cymbal.

Based on the stamp, this looks to be a 1950s cymbal. Small stamp, no dots. Please correct me here if I'm wrong.

Weight is 2035 grams making this a nice medium-thin cymbal. Great as a main or left side ride, or a great big rock crash-ride.

As is typical of these old Avedis Zildjians, this cymbal is a nice balance of bright stick and deep wash. This cymbal has tons of sustain and a little bit of nice edge wobble to boot!

In addition, cymbal is drilled for 6 rivets. I currently have 1 installed but can include a handful of brass rivets for you to experiment with.

Cymbal has some tape residue, light scratching, and lots of patina. Has never been cleaned in my possession.

No keyhole, cracks, dents or chips.

See pictures for details.
Here is a link to a soundfile. Not great, but it gives you an idea:
