Intense ZBT sounds to start your set.

This Zildjian ZBT 3 Cymbal Pack includes an 18" crash ride and a pair of 13" hi-hats plus a free 14" crash. Sound grooves and round hammer strikes in a simple circular pattern on the top surface of ZBT cymbals magnify the basic sound of the distinctive ZBT alloy. ZBT Series Hi-Hats produce a sharp and focused sound with an excellent, bright chick sound. The ZBT crash ride cymbal produces a cutting ride sound with good crash qualities. The free 14" crash has a brilliant finish and provides easy playability—the perfect first crash cymbal.

The bright, intense, high-pitched sound of the Zildjian ZBT series cymbals cut through the mix. The sheet origin and lathing techniques create high-volume projection that speaks quickly and brightly when struck then decays rapidly. Since ZBT cymbals are pressed and lathed from sheets of uniform, high-quality bronze alloy, they are remarkably consistent.

The highly polished, brilliant finish looks fresh and offers excellent, clean stick articulation with controlled overtones.

Features
  • 18" crash ride
  • 13" hi-hats
  • Free 14" crash

This is a good, solid set of cymbals for getting started. They came with my Ludwig Accent kit, so it wasn't a conscious choice to get them, but I've been pleasantly surprised. Good sound out of all pieces. I got another 14" crash because I liked the bright, fast-decaying sound, and the second one gives a slightly different tone. Took some time for them to "play" into their best sound, but for the price you can't get any better. My kit has a combination of ZBTs and ZHTs and I they make for a nice variety of sounds, tones, and accents.

I've played Zildjian cymbals for over 30 years and they are still my favorites. But these entry level ZBT's are not worthy of the name. I had to play on them recently on the house set at a blues club, and I felt they sounded pretty bad. If you're just starting out, you can put some good heads on cheap drums and tweak the sound so that it is decent, but there is no way to improve the sound of a lousy cymbal. Try the Meinl or Wuhans in this price range. Or save up and get some real Zildjians.

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          I have been playing Drums for 38 years, and I never comment on equipment, until I have had a chance to use it, not on first impression !!! I got this Cymbal pack 2 years ago, and have been using them regularly since !!! While I believe in playing my drums not beating them, when I jam I jam !!! This set has absolutely exceeded my expectations !!! I thought the 14" would be the first to go, but that little joker is tough !!! It's loud and crisp, and cuts right through the music when we jam !!! The 18" depending on how you play it, is either warm and full, or radical and loud, you decide !!! The High Hats are powerful enough and have a good chick !!! Coming out of retirement and jamming again, for the money you pay for these guys, if you aren't pleased with this value and sound, you can't be pleased !!! They will make a good addition to your set !!! Check them out !!!

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          I'm not a great drummer, but the person who recommended these cymbals to me is. While I do agree with him that the tones of the cymbals aren't very complex and they tend to have a sort of gong-like element which is apparent when played by themselves, they do not have the harshness and edginess that other cheap cymbals do. They blend well with playing in a rock band and my drummer is currently using them as his back-up kit and he makes them sound great. I have also been told that they cymbals will continue to mellow out as they become tarnished played more, which will likely help since the hi-hats are a little loud and clunky sounding.

          The free 14" crash is a good value at this price; it is my least favorite of the crew, but it's nice to have the option to have another tone to work with.

          ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash

          By Tristan Myles

          from Selma,Alabama

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          Overall these are the the cheapest best quality zildjian cymbals you can get. The hi-hats give a bright chik sound and the crash sounds really good, the ride is also good but it producing overtones if struck to hard but overall a good cymbal pack.
          These are some of the best cymbals you can get , especially if you are just starting off !
          These cymbals produce a bright sound +that every drummer could need in his/her set. They will need good cleaning though, use some Zildjian Cymbal Cleaner nd they will be looking good as new .
          They also have incredible value they hardly ever dent and they wont ever need replacing unless you just want to .

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          Overall - they work.
          It's nice getting hi hats, a crash, and a crash/ride all in one. It's also nice that they sound better than most cheap cymbals that come with drums.
          They are not the best. You get what you pay for.
          Good value

          By Mark Nelson

          from Marion, Iowa

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          The ZBT cymbals do not have the same sound made by the ZHTs or the Z Custom but for the price they are very good...
          Great starter pack for new set or to rebuild an older set like I did...
          The ZBT cymbals have a good sound but they have to be hit firm to get a good sound. Again, it is a good starter set.
          Pieced together this kit saves you a little more, so adding to the value of the pack...

          Eh... They're Alright.

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          I receivced this pack of cymbals for Christmas 4 years ago when i originally started drumming. Not bad for beginning drummers. They sound Ok for the price, the price is also really good for a starter set like these. The only thing i don't like about them is that they break after about 6 months, or so mine did after buying them 3 times... Big Mistake! I now use these cymbals for when i don't want to kill my A Customs (also by Zildjian). This review is going off of the 16" Crash, 13" hi hats (i still use these as my main hi hats) and 18" crash/ride. If you are a beginning drummer or even intermediate and do not have much $ for cymbals... Get these.

          terrible

          By DW DRUMEr

          from Kansas

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

          i bought these cymbals about 5 months ago along with the warenty. the only thing i am impressed with is the bell on the crash/ride. over the 5 month period of owning these i have had to send my 14in crash in 2 times, and i need to send it in again. the price looks is low, but so are the quality of these cymbals. these are okay for begginers. and they are not meant to be hit hard at all.
