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

  • VIOLA!!  This beauty has a wonderful subtle and mellow GLASSINESS to it.  

  • This Discontinued 16 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 2497 grams which gives it an absolutely terrific stick definition. 

  • It plays right between a Thin and Medium Thin but is closer to the Medium Thin. And this one has this inimitable glassy tone! 

  • 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 16 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. Obviously records quite well.  

  • No issues. Typical  surface wear/use. Played-in and aged. 

  •  A beautiful cymbal that hasn’t been made in over a decade.
