  • Wonderfully clean and TIGHT sounding, 16 year aged No Longer Made Zildjian ARMAND Series HiHats in the rare and FAST 13” size! 

  • When in production, these beauties cost more than Zildjian New Beats. They were like a more refined, throwback style New Beat, and Zildjian charged for that refinement.

  • These are the even harder to find 13s”. 

  • 858 and 1018 grams offers a classic New Beat philosophy weight-thinner top with a heavier bottom for a great CHICK tone and terrific stick response. 

  • This specific pair has fantastic CHICK tone with a light and slightly complex sibilance when opened. A pinch more lively than New Beats but with a bit of dryness mixed in. 

  • And being the 13s" this particular pair has a clean and crisp articulation to them-they are not as sluggish as 14s" and 15s" can be. They cut exceptionally well without being overbearing.

  • Tight. Semi-dry, bright. Responsive. Terrific stick and foot articulation.  Great cutting ability but still with a thin to medium thin top cymbal for lower volume response.

  • Crisp and focused when closed. Quick and fast action when opened. 
  • Absolutely terrific cut, clarity and stick articulation all with a specific nod to Zildjian’s illustrious history. 

  • No issues. Great shape and overall very clean!! Will continue to age gracefully! Long discontinued and hard to find.
