To my knowledge, the Zildjian Avedis China Boy is a discontinued cymbal, as I've been able to find barely any information on it at all, let alone how much it costs. This cymbal was given to me by my friend's father, who didn't want it anymore. I love this cymbal, and am very thankful that he gave it to me. The sound isn't quite as trashy as I would like, but nonetheless I like the overall tone to it. I can say it is a very sturdy, wellbuilt cymbal, considering the previous owner has had it since 1983, and it's withstood beatings since then, let alone my own. You don't have to hit the china boy very hard to get a nice sound out of it, and I like that in cymbals. As a matter of fact, there isn't much I can complain about with this cymbal at all. If there's one thing I don't like, it's the sustain. I like my china's to have a very quick decay to them, but this has a medium-long sustain, but that really isn't anything a bit of Moongel couldn't fix. If you can find one of these cymbals, I recommend you get it, because there won't be many places you'll find them, and it's a great buy.
