    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Box Set:

    I have been drumming for decades and have never been happier with my cymbals. Just so you have a rough idea, I have used Sabian, Paiste, etc., and continue to keep coming back to my K Custom Hybrids. I have augmented my cymbal setup with some more hybrids (splashes, etc.), because I like the versatility and tonal range of this line.

    I totally recognize that these cymbals seem expensive, which they are. However, given the price, you are getting some truly high-end cymbals. I have always been of the mind that I'd rather pay for quality up-front than spend more continuously replacing cymbals. First thing to note: these will not give you as dark of a sound as the traditional dark Zildjian line. These are brighter. The un-lathed zones of the cymbal give tighter, cleaner, more pronounced sounds, which demonstrates that each cymbals has different types of character depending on playing, area of focus, where you strike, your touch, etc.

    I have had no issues with chipping, cracking, etc. and I do not worry about their sturdiness/construction. As always, my advice is to do your research about your cymbals, see/handle/play some in person, read reviews, and make an informed decision. Cymbals can be an investment that continue to pay for themselves as time goes forward if you make an informed decision and pick something of quality that you enjoy.

      Too Bright For My Taste

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Box Set:

            I purchased these for use on a second drum set I recently bought. I was hoping I'd love them but they just aren't for me. They are incredibly bright without much of the dark K character I have come to love.

            For my other set, I use a mixture of K's, K customs, A customs, Zildjian FX and even a K custom hybrid splash - the splash is excellent, I think the bright character of these cymbals works great with such a small cymbal. In regards to this box set however, I am not a huge fan of the bright sound. Even for a bright cymbal, I prefer my A customs over these - although those are over 15yrs old and are thoroughly broken in and have aged gracefully!

            Don't get me wrong, these hybrids are a fine quality cymbal but to me lack the character of what I've come to expect from a K. I am going to fill out my new kit with some K standards instead.

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Box Set:

            I went from ZXT's to these and WOW what a difference. The crash doesn't have that "ting" sound when you hit it like the ZXT's do. The ride is like having three cymbals in one...the outer rim has more resonance while the inner portion has a more ride tinging sound, and then of course the bell is it's own sound.

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Box Set:

            The only notable downside to these cymbals are the price....yet purchasing them in this convenient set reduces the price of the three individual components by a great deal.. There is so much to be said; truly, these cymbals are simply superb, and can be utilized in any rock, jazz, Latin, reggae, funk, etc. grooves that you desire. I strongly encourage anyone to buy them, and you won't be disappointed. I upgraded my cymbals from Zildjian As (ride crash and hats) and these cymbals sound worlds better. The As were adequate instruments, yet these K Custom Hybrids have a much more beautiful, dark response, and sing out in my playing more than the As. Trust me, it is worth the price, and these cymbals will last you the rest of your life.
