14" Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat, 1248 and 1020 grams
Serial number: # JG 56449174 & # JG 01501001
Excellent used condition, as new!
Featuring a medium-thin weight top and a medium weight bottom, 14" Armand HiHats have a fast response and an articulate cymbal sound with a warm "chick" and are versatile enough for almost any style of music.
Based on the popular 19" Armand "Beautiful Baby" Ride and the inimitable sound of the 60's, the Armand Series is an excellent addition to the classic A Zildjian range of cymbals, offering their own distinct characteristics. New shaping techniques create a slightly lower profile 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.
"The Zildjian company is now proudly announcing the release of their newest series, Armand, named after the founder of the company, Armand Zildjian. The new series contains 20 and 21-inch ride cymbals, 16 and 18-inch crashes, a 10" splash and 13 ad 14-inch hi-hats, all in medium-thin and thin versions, for a complete range of sound that's needed for the bright sound of your music.
As Zildjian Co describes the new Armand Series, "The new Armand Series is part of the "A Zildjian" range of cymbals, but offers its own unique characteristics. New shaping techniques create a slightly lower profile than the current A Zildjians and help to offer a special warm and smooth blend of overtones. Lighter weight specifications promote a faster cymbal response with special lower pitched overtones without loss of projection potential, and a tighter lathe pattern on the top of each model results in a unique feel."
