20" Zildjian Armand Ride, 2206 grams
Serial number: # JG 01426026
Excellent used condition, as new
Classic A Zildjian Ride that offers a sweet shimmering quality of overtones without loss of control or Ride articulation, with a larger sized cup for excellent bell access.
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."
