Zildjian A Series Gets a Facelift: Refactoring of the A Zildjian Line, Introduction of New Models, and an Updated Logo. One of Zildjian’s core values is to follow the music. That’s why we listened to drummers when they told us our A Zildjian line needed to be dialed into the essence of that classic sound. Making adjustments to the curvature and weights of our current line to capture the sweet spot of the A sound, producing even better crashes, rides, and hats that reflect today’s musical styles. Also in 2013, we’re reintroducing the 19” and 20” Thin Crashes and 20” Medium Thin Crash, and introducing a new 23” Sweet Ride -- all in response to drummers’ requests for larger, thinner models.
