  1. Zildjian Avedis '50 (small stamp) ride sizzle 22 - 2469g (AUDIO)
    Price: 250
    Zildjian Avedis no dot 50s sizzle 22 ". Cymbal in perfect condition (no crack, no clew). There are 6 rivet holes. Only one removable brass rivet fitted.
    It's a fairly rare cymbal. In fact, it has a very pronounced bell shape that is rather unusual for the Avedis. This characteristic gives the harmonics an interesting color that lends itself well to jazz contexts, but ...

    I just got 4 pairs of the MJC3. They are All consistent in weight. 44 grams. The Old RT weighs 43 grams. Pitch wise the MJC3 is an A and the RT is Ab..its only 1/2 step difference.

  5. Skiba Modified

    Just picked up a 20" 1823 K modified by Michael Skiba. Seems like a really good addition, quick crash, a pure blended sound not too dark but not real pingy either. I am looking forward to pairing this cymbal with some hats and some of my darker thin Agop rides. Any experience with cymbals modified by Michael Skiba?
