Dont let the ZBT logo get you down when your friends brag about expensive zildjians and sabians simply because unless their gigging every night they got screwed. Don't get me wrong killer cymbals are a good investment but you cant go wrong with these, specially if you are tight on cash and want a killer set. At first the sound was a little bright for my taste but they grow on you and with enough experimentation you can utilize their bright sound quite effectively and musically(especially the spashes, God I love the splashes) The crashes are just what they should be, warm and smooth when gently hit on the edge and bright and cutting when you smack it. The 20" ride takes time to get the right articulation although I must say that I am super picky and want more ping and less wash. If your a rocker its great coz it fills the mix but my style is a little different. The china is sharp and fast when the wing nut is nice and tight but make sure that you hit the edge dead on or your china "trash" is dead lost. Other than that you can't go wrong with these. I like to think of these cymbals as vanilla pepsi, two flavors that are totally addicting in one drink.

OK, I read a lot of reviews about these cymbals. I own a 6 piece set of the ZBTs that I use with my kit for gigging. If you play country, they will work, if you play around, they will work, but if you play well... buy A customs. :) If you want a cymbal that is cheap, functional and will hold up, these are them. One review was shocked that Zildjian put there names on them. Yeah, what do Dennis Chambers, and Vinnie C know! One review said that they bent and dented from playing. F.Y.I. If you "cut" into a cymbal, not bash the **** out of it, you will never break a cymbal. In fact, an alloy cymbal will actually sound better after playing, but the ZBTs will not. As for all the other factors, many drummers forget that a cymbal has a specific range, what you hear on the kick side and what a crowd will hear are very, very, very different. These cymbals are designed for segmentation playing, aka, what the crowd will hear in overtones is good, and what the drummer hears is tolerable. That is why they are designed to resonate so much. Want both sides to sound good? A Customs! Also, before buying any cymbals, consider these few factors; 1) What kind of playing will I be doing? 2) How much will I play? 3) What kind of stick will I use? 4) How do I tune my drums, what cymbals will correspond to them? 5) What is my need? This is especially important newbie&#821s; any good drummer knows that owning drums does not make you a drummer. It takes long hours of actual &#822practice&#822, not playing to improve. I still after 14 years in a studio setting spend at least 20 min. a day practicing just high hat repetition patterns, textures and sweeps. If you want to really get serious, buy an New Beat High Hat only and save up for the rest. Do you know why Zildjian included a cymbal bag? One, it is a good advertising/ marketing promotion. But also plate cymbals will change pitch permanently when they experience temperature changes. Keep&#821m bagged. If you want to mike your drums these cymbals are the biggest waste you could ever buy, there ranges make the mixer **** it&#821s pants.P.S. The resale value on the former low end cymbals from Zildjian (The Scimitar) are practically nothing. These will be to. Buy&#821m, use&#821m, E-bay&#821m, use money for a new pair of sticks. That is all you&#821ll get. Good Drumming.Mitch Spawn

I like these zbt zildjian cymbals

By emisarry_tama

from new underwood south dakota

See all my reviews

I've had these cymbal package for 8 months now and they are pretty good but the china started to crack in four different places.. im a little upset about it but i can replace it.. they at a pretty good price so i can get a new one..but the other cymbals have lasted a good while..but im going to have to save some money and get some a custom's i wouldn't want to use thesee for heavy metal, even if you do some hard hitting. they dent pretty easy but they got a very good sound to them. if your in to thrash metal like me i guess these cymbal will work for a while but if i were you i wouldn't get them for hardcore metal. but i like these cymabal. there good.. there not the best in the world but there good.

Awesome Starter

By I-B-drummin'

from Salem, OR

I got these about 1 1/2 years ago and they are still going strong. Never cracked or anything, my only complaint is that they are not as loud as I was expecting and not really very good for rock. But i couldn't expect much because they are lower end cymbals. I am going to upgrade pretty soon here to some ZXT's but for now these work fine.

Great Starter Pack

By playinfor24years

from Cincinnati, OH

See all my reviews

This was the first type of cymbals I ever purchased I have now moved on to A Customs but if you are on a beginners budget these are for you. The Hi-Hats are virtually indestructable, I know I'm a hard hitter. The crash is a crisp clear sound that always stands out. The ride I still used it is the best I have ever used. The china dents if you don't flip it upside down. I recommend this pack to any starters or experimentors with drums.

Really Good Cymbals

By Mikey06

from Lemon Grove, CA

See all my reviews

I have only been playing for about a year and a half and I finally got around to replacing my cymbals. I got this pack cause they were a good value. And I was rewarded greatly. These cymbals are great. They sound awesome. The crash has a nice crisp sound to it. I recommend getting another 16" crash to accent the kit but overall, this is a great pack and a great value.

not bad cymbals

By yaknow...

from PA

See all my reviews

I've had these cymbals for about 4 months. They have kept in good shape. They are good cymbals, but you get what you pay for. These are good beginner cymbals, and great for learning on. These are much better than the Sabian B8's. These have a nice strong sound to them. Only complaint is the overtones, which aren't that bad. These are a good deal, and highly recommended for beginners.

Good cymbals for beginners

By Jewski

from Davis, CA

See all my reviews

These cymbals are great for beginning drummers. The hi-hats sound great and so does the crash and china. The ride sounds pretty good, but it has a really long decay, but I fixed that by clipping a clothespin on the edge. The price is great for what you get.
