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

Great set-up for beginners

By Just Jammin'

from Massillon, OH

This is a great set for beginners. I liked the sound of the 16" crash, and the 20" ride sounds good. I didn't really care for the sound of the china cymbal when hit with sticks, but it sounds better when struck with mallets.Overall though it is a good set for the money.

ZBT

By TSU-drummer

from Alamogordo, NM

See all my reviews

I got these cymbals in August, and they still play great. The ride does ring a bit much, but it still sounds good. The china has a unique (but not bad) sound; quite different from other chinas I've heard. The crash sounds pretty good, too. The hats have a crisp chick when closed, and ring great open. I also bought the accompanying 18" crash ride, which goes along well. The only damages in them are a few dings in the china and the crash from where I'd hit hard and with improper technique in the gigs. The only thing I don't like is that the crashes and the ride are too low pitched for my light-punk style, but this is a good deal for the money. I definitely prefer these over the sabian set.

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.

Awesome!

By River Ron

These cymbals are definately worth getting, even if they do seem like cheapies. Mine sound great and go really well with my drumset. The china is the only thing that doesn't really sound that great. At least my one didn't. The crash has a rich full classic sound to it. The ride has a really nice high toned and defined sound to it. The high hats are excellent and are one of the best things about this pack. Plus, these cymbals are very durable, which makes them an even better buy.

Do not buy

By drummerboy3801

from Peoria, IL

See all my reviews

WARNING: Do not buy these cymbals. First of alll because they suck but second of all, because there are way better cymbals for the price. These sound terrible. Other Zildians sound good but these don't. Neither do the ZXT's. If anything get B8 or B8pro. They arent that great either but they are 10X better than these things. The Sabian XS20's are good too because they are actually cymbals(cast not sheet). The Paiste PST5's are also good. Whatever you do, don't buy these. I have no idea how they are the best-selling cymbals right now on this website.

Decent for Beginners

By woahmama00

from Ennis, TX

See all my reviews

These cymbals are pretty decent for a beginner, but they dent and crack after a while. Once you move to a better sounding cymbal you'll cringe at the sound of ZBT's. I play with ZXT's at the moment. They crack over time as well, but not nearly as fast as the ZBT cymbal. ZXT sound quality reigns superior as well.

ZBT oh so bad

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The cymbals are great for a beginner, not for n e one who likes to rock out on the crash. My crash had the same dent on the edge as some one else on this described. Eventually it cracked. The ride is decent, but could be better. I have upgraded slowly on my kit and the only 2 zbt cymbals I still have is my pair of hats and the ride. The hats are still in nice shape so that I can deal with.

Great cymbals!

By Travis-txkQn

from asheville

See all my reviews

I don't see what everyone is complaining about. I have this set and I love it. They sound great, especially as you play them more and more. I've had them for 6 months and the only damage done to them is some stick marks (which usually rub off with some cymbal cleaner) and minor dents around the edges on the crash. The ride does ring alot, but all you gotta do is roll up 2 pieces of scotch tape about an inch and a half long and as big around as a pencil, then tape the rolls on the underside of the ride, on opposite sides. It'll reduce the ring and they'll sound awesome!

Love it

By ilovetodrum36

from Texas

I love these cymbals. The ride cymbal is not too dry but doesnt ring too much. The crash could end a little faster but its still great. The hi-hats are the best part. I havent tried the free china because I havent had the chance to set it up but these are great cymbals. Also the crash got scratch marks the 2nd time I hit it, but the ride still has none.
