  • Looking for a very smooth and warm ride that has a pinpoint stick attack with a pinch of shimmer to it? 

  • VIOLA!!

  • This Discontinued 15-year-old 21” ARMAND Ride perfectly blends stick definition with the warmth of a fully lathed cymbal. And being the largest cataloged 21” size, it’s the darkest one they offered.  It has a foot in K Land, but has the SMOOTHNESS and classy-ness of the vintage-inspired Armand Series.

  • And it’s a fairly THIN 2294 grams.  One of the thinner ones I’ve seen. 

  • It plays right between a Thin and Medium Thin and the beautiful patina is why the stick attack is so smooth and prominent. 

  • Nothing harsh at all, one of the smoothest 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 15 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 But not nearly as harsh as a heavy brutish A.

  • One of the nicest sounding modern smooth and focused Zildjians you’ll hear. 

  • No issues.  Overall very clean. Strong logos. Light patina. A beautiful cymbal that hasn’t been made in over a decade.
