Zildjian A Avedis 20" Crash Ride (1674g)
At a factory-marked 1674 grams, this is the lightest example of this cymbal we've ever had. In fact, Zildjian identified the weight range of the 20" model when it came out as 1757 to 1928 grams.
The condition is very good: the center hole is round and the edge is smooth, with a minor rough spot or two but nothing close to a "fleabite." The closeup photo shows that the applied patina collected in a spot at the edge; in general, that patina plus a few years of handling results in a very vintage-looking cymbal. Expect the usual cosmetic signs of use, i.e. stick marks, fingerprints, light scratches and stains, and the like. The serial number prefix "AF" indicates that it was made in 2016.
This model was suspended by Zildjian, so it's been difficult to get new. If you can find one, it would cost $464.95. Grab this one while you can!
See and hear this cymbal in our Video Vault (TM) and buy with confidence!
