The look and sound from rock's glory days.
This classic A Zildjian ride offers a sweet shimmering quality of overtones without loss of control or ride articulation. Features a larger sized cup for excellent bell access.
Based on the popular 19" Armand Ride and the inimitable sound of the 60s, Zildjian proudly introduces the Armand series into the A Zildjian Range. During the explosion of rock and pop music of the 60's, the great drummers of groundbreaking bands used A Zildjian cymbals to make their mark. You can hear Zildjian's distinctive sound in the great recordings of that era, from The Beatles to The Beach Boys, from Cream to The Jimi Hendrix Experience, from The Rolling Stones to The Spencer Davis Group. Zildjian has now resurrected that nostalgic cymbal sound with these exciting new models.
New shaping techniques create a slightly lower profile than A Zildjians and help to offer a special warm and smooth blend of overtones. Lighter weight specifications promote a fast cymbal response with special lower-pitched overtones without the loss of projection potential.
Zildjian left these babies without any protective coating to help promote the aged look and patina that cymbals from the 60's would have today. A tighter lathe on top combined with the current A Zildjian lathing on the bottom results in a unique feel for each new model.
