Amediaâs Vintage line has the mysterious old-time mojo that hardcore cymbal junkies scour the world to find.
Amediaâs link with the mysterious roots of Turkish cymbal making is master cymbal smith Eremya Arzat. Witness to all the secrets of the old-time cymbal-makers, his memories of the halcyon days and how cymbals were made in the old Agahaman, Istanbul factory are forged into every Amedia Vintage cymbal.
Lathed paper thin by Hamdusana Baykusak, the Vintage cymbals open quickly when crashed then get right out of the way, while still providing clear stick definition for your intricate ride patterns. The ridesâ breathy wash is the perfect comp behind piano and reeds, while the Hi Hats provide a satisfying, low-pitched chick.
The rides are strong with a great bounce and clear bell; the crashes pack a punch and hold lots of potential sound energy. Hi-hats are loud with a tight stick response. The Vintage vibe is enhanced by lack of printed logos on the cymbals. Look for the Amedia cold-stamp to ensure you are buying an authentic Amedia Vintage.
