The age-old adage – “don't fix it if it ain’t broken” – may be wrong after all. At least that’s how it appears with the new and improved profile of the Zildjian’s legacy A Zildjian line.
Don’t worry – Zildjian’s cymbalsmiths haven’t thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Instead, the factory has adjusted the curvature and weights of the line to capture the sweet spot of the A sound, resulting in enhanced crashes, rides, and hats.
Besides the overall facelift, you can look forward to some new A Zildjians in 2013, as well as the return of a couple familiar models. The company will reintroduce the larger sized 19" and 20" A Zildjian Thin Crashes, with their classic, full-bodied sound, and broad sonic range and wash.
You should also check out the all-new 23" Medium Thin A Zildjian Sweet Ride, inspired by the best selling 21" model, which offers clean stick definition for riding as well as a powerful crash component.
Lots of beautiful bronze. So little time!
