The Zildjian Armand Thin Crash Cymbal has an extra fast response, bright and shimmering with a warm full blend of overtones.
Based on the popular 19" Armand Ride cymbal and the inimitable sound of the '60s, Zildjian proudly introduces the Armand series into the A Zildjian Cymbal range. During the explosion of rock and pop music of the '60s, the great drummers of groundbreaking bands used A Zildjian cymbals to make their mark. You can hear Zildjian's distinctive sound in the great recordings of that era, from The Beatles to The Beach Boys, from Cream to The Jimi Hendrix Experience, from The Rolling Stones to The Spencer Davis Group. Zildjian has now resurrected that nostalgic cymbal sound with these exciting new Armand Cymbal models.
New shaping techniques create a slightly lower profile than A Zildjian cymbals 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.
Zildjian left these babies without any protective coating to help promote the aged look and patina that Zildjian cymbals from the '60s would have today. A tighter lathe on top combined with the current A Zildjian lathing on the bottom results in a unique feel for each new Armand cymbal model.

This is a good, well balanced crash cymbal. Very responsive with a pleasing decay. Now, I will go and write a wine description.... As a series, the Armands really do compliment each other well. I also own the 21" ride and they sound great together. i hope to add to the set soon!
I have been a drummer since the 60's & these are the sound of their first cymbals with great response & a lighter hit to make crash so you don't have to work as hard to play them, the 24" ride has longer sustain & cuts through at a lighter hit, I love them & these would be great for any sytle of music played !
