The sound of the '60s revived!

Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals give you a warm yet articulate hi-hat blend evoking the shimmering sound of the '60s. This Zildjian Armand pair includes a medium-thin top hi-hat cymbal and a medium weight bottom cymbal.

Based on the popular 19" Armand Ride and the inimitable sound of the '60s, Zildjian proudly introduces the Armand series into the A Zildjian 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 models.

New shaping techniques create a slightly lower profile than A Zildjians 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 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 model.

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

I had been looking for some serious hihats that arent overly expensive. I tried sabian aa's and was about to purchase them when these hats caught my eye. i tried them and fell in love! The "chick" you get when closed and the definition when open amazed me. Though i'm not a big fan of traditionally finished cymbals, its all about the sound and these hats are definitely great sounding hats..


This is why Zildjian is #1!

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

As far as I understand it, these are basically the original New Beats. As music got louder, cymbals got thicker. Armand is a step in the opposite direction. Thin with a lower profile, these hats fit excellently into lighter situations, as well as amplified rock. I picked mine up off of some type of clearance at my local store and payed significantly less, but they are worth every penny being charged here, these are the real deal. Bright with Dark and Smokey overtones, a very classic sound. They are developing a patina at a rapid rate, which is great. These things age very quickly, developing a sweet vintage look and feel sooner than you would expect. I love it. Not a lot of cut, but unless you're playing metal, these should do just fine.

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

My band teacher and good friend owns a pair of very old Zildjian A hi-hats, which i fell in love with as soon as I heard the chick, but unfortunately he wont sell them to me until the day he dies. I did my research on the series, and realized that the Armands were the closest thing I could get to the other cymbals.I just got them in the mail and they are exactly what i was hoping for, strait out of the sixties.Great sounding hi-hats for a little less. They really project though any other noise with their chick. Also don't be fooled into spending more money on k customs, because it is about the sound, not the series and price tag.Great for jazz, jam, anything not too heavy


Serious Hats

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

I own a pair of these and I just ordered another pair. These are the sweetest sounding hats you could possibly want. Sizzle, stick definition, too sweet for words. When you work these hats you will know what I mean....they sing. I know that there are more expensive hats out there, and these may not be what you want for metal....but brother, every other type of music from classic rock, country, funk, jazz, and blues will sound all the better with these. I have tried many and listened to many, many more. These are as good as it gets.


The sound you're looking for

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

These are beautiful hats and exactly what you would expect in the Zildjian A line up. Mind you, these are not as versatile as New Beats. They?ve got more wash and a mellower stick and chip. Together with my Armand ride, they slide perfectly into accoutic jazz, horns and piano. They may be exactly the sound you?re looking for.

Comments about Zildjian Armand Hi-Hat Cymbals:

I just tried these 14" Armand hats at the local music store. These will be my next purchase for sure. They are probably not for heavy music (they are rather thin) but they have the funkiest groovin sound I've ever heard. Very articulate sticking, crisp, and bright. They are exactly what I was looking for.
