not necessarily, Avanti was more a "type" of cymbal rather than a brand. the most common avanti cymbals were manufactured by camber (sabian) but a more rare series of avanti was manufactured my meinl. these are very high quality compared to their camber counterparts. the meinls feature a triangular blue logo, where as the cambers feature a circular one. the cambers also have a goldish tint where as almost all the meinl avantis are silver colored.
