The great cymbal sound of the '60s is back.

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.

Very Different than most Zildjians

Comments about Zildjian Armand Thin Crash Cymbal:

and I mean that in a VERY good way! I recently bought both the 16" and 18" models. They are very thin and flexible and respond immediately to a stick stroke. These are considered A's but they are very un-"A"-like. They have a darker and warmer sound and you can hear several different tonal colors across the sustain of the crash, particularly with the 18". On most A's all you hear is brightness. Even though these are very thin, they still get plenty loud, but without being overpowering. I love them! If you're looking for good all-around crash that is not too bright, not too dark, but just right, give one of these a try!


Great for more than one use

Comments about Zildjian Armand Thin Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal sounds great as a ride. Really! It gives you that jazzy feel. I'm thinking of getting another crash instead of buying a ride cymbal. It's pretty expensive but pays out every cent.


GReat sound

Comments about Zildjian Armand Thin Crash Cymbal:

I just purchased this cymbal and the tone is great. It has great ability to cut through the music. It has a long musical decay without the ringing of a cheaper cymbal. A little pricey though.
