Great Cymbal
JackBG, 27.01.2020
This is a great cymbal if your looking for the vintage sound from the early 40's to the 70's. Its a dark and very warm tone, its also not too loud, and its very responsive. I've used this cymbal on many occasions for all sorts of music ranging from Jazz to Rock and everything inbetween. You can put this cymbal in any situation and it will sound great. The Avedis logo on the top is a really nice touch and the dull shine really gives it that lovely warm vintage look. However the biggest con i would say is that each cymbal sounds different as underneath the cymbal it will have a different weight marked out. If you are planning on buying this cymbal it is best to hear it first, because each Ride will sound slightly different from each other.

Avedis
ZildjiDan , 17.06.2020
I would recommend playing this as a large crash if you, like me are into using rides as crashes. I find it isn't a suitable ride for rock/blues, but works nicely in quieter settings. It has a lovely smoky appeal but still has the required A volume unlike other dark cymbals. If you are looking for a cutting ride I would suggest you look at the 22'.
