  •  Looking for a very smooth ride that has a pinpoint stick attack and a bright, warm wash. 

  • VIOLA!! 

  • This Discontinued 17-year-old 20”  ARMAND Ride perfectly blends stick definition with the warmth of a fully lathed cymbal.

  • Its bright but has the SMOOTHNESS and classy-ness of the vintage-inspired Armand Series.

  • 2197 grams is why that definition is so nice, but it’s far from a heavy cymbal. It’s a Medium Thin with a clear and clean tone. Cleaner than most regular As. 

  • Nothing harsh, one of the smoother modern Zildjians you will find. And that was the whole concept behind the Armand Series - to capture the glowing warmth and mellowed tone of some of the Vintage Zildjians of yore. 

  • Mellowed and aged over the last 17 years. Defined. Focused. Subtle, glowing warm stick presence.  Very controlled wash for a fully lathed cymbal.  The metal has chilled out and settled.

  • A larger-sized Solid 5.5 bell provides plenty of cuts when you need it.

  • Warm enough to crash on like a BIG Medium Thin to Medium. Full when rocked on the edge. 

  • This particular one has a great clean tone to it. 

  • No issues. Very clean for a 17 year old cymbal. Light golden patina starting to grace this beauty!  A versatile Zildjian you just can’t get anymore.
