Drums & Percussion/vintage cymbals?


I believe I found vintage AVEDIS ZILDJIAN CO GENUINE TURKISH CYMBALS MADE IN THE USA. I need help dating them and pricing them to sale. Thank you.

You need to contact one of several businesses that should be able to help you. However, be aware that the "genuine Turkish cymbals" have been made in Mass. For decades. Also, over the past 30 years, ZildjiN has had hundreds of models and lines of cymbals. You have  3 places that I think can help. They will charge you for an assessment.



As a last resort, you might contact Zildjian themselves, but most large music companies do not offer appraisal services.
