Default 2 new Zildjians

Hey there! Firstly SORRY FOR THE TERRIBLE PICTURES!! I bought these two Zildjians second-hand yesterday. Here in Budapest new they would have cost about 300 dollars but I bought them for 170. They sound gorgeous I really like them. The A-custom is a bit lower so they fit perfectly to each other!

Specs:
Zildjian Avedis 8" splash (traditional)
Zildjian A-custom 8" splash (brilliant)








What do you think?

They look great! Must compliment each other nicely. Don't you love used gear? Oh and one thing: Can you say TINY hi-hats??

haha! I thought about trying these as hi-hats:P but actually I was surprised how good they are. I thought they'd be bad since they are used. But it's like if I'd buy new stuff half price. And after polishing you can't see ANY difference between new and used :)

Amen to that. I own two used ride cymbals. One is about the ten years old and the other is at least ten years old (Doesn't have a serial no., but it was discontinued). Both are in impeccable condition and sound just great, and combined their prices add up to about $300. :) Of course they needed a little polish, like yours did, but I don't mind slightly dirty cymbals.

the A-custom splash has such a distinctive sound... it is very china splashy. I like it.

nice buy!
