New for 2013, Zildjian has revamped and remodeled their classic A. Zildjian series. The A's really are a timeless set of cymbals that have been played by everyone from Buddy Rich to Dave Grohl. This sudden tune-up is due to the numerous requests Zildjian received from players and fans alike, asking for an A. Zildjian that was reminiscent of those classic cymbals from the 60's and 70's while still having a modern finish and versatility that would make it applicable to all styles of music. Luckily for us, not only did Zildjian respond to our requests, but far exceeded our expectations with these beautiful new cymbals.
The Thin Crashes offer a shimmering, transparent sound that is sure to please even the most critical of players. These cymbals have a warm, buttery sound with a beautiful spread. Not only do they sound great, but they're easy on the hands as well. These cymbals have a smooth feel with a great rebound and wonderful articulation. In short, these are the kind of cymbals that just make it easy for you to sit there and play for hours on end.
