Zildjian’s classic sound is embodied by A Zildjian and immortalized in countless recordings by the greatest drummers of all time. Known for their versatility, these bright cymbals range from paper thin and delicate to extra heavy and cutting. Recent adjustments were made to the curvature and weights of many current models to capture the sweet spot of the classic A sound, producing crashes, rides, and hats that reflect today’s musical styles.
The A Zildjian Uptown Ride is a smaller sized Ride that delivers a controlled dry sound with very pronounced stick definition. With its unlathed top and bottom surface, it creates a tightly defined, attenuated sound with minimal overtones and sustain.
