I picked up a couple and they do in fact sound like old A's... No logos!
Interesting that most of those are light weight - a lot of extra-thin, with the heaviest being medium-thin. Honestly, I think that is one of the biggest differences between cymbals of yesteryear and those of today. I know manufacturing processes have changed, but you can't make a heavy cymbal sound like a thin one, no matter how you hammer or lathe it, and many cymbals today are simply thicker than their older counterparts. I'm glad to see that changing somewhat.
