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 newbie̵s; any good drummer knows that owning drums does not make you a drummer. It takes long hours of actual ̶practice̶, 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. Keep̵m bagged. If you want to mike your drums these cymbals are the biggest waste you could ever buy, there ranges make the mixer **** it̵s pants.P.S. The resale value on the former low end cymbals from Zildjian (The Scimitar) are practically nothing. These will be to. Buy̵m, use̵m, E-bay̵m, use money for a new pair of sticks. That is all you̵ll get. Good Drumming.Mitch Spawn

I got these cymbals back in november 08 the crash is nice the ride is bad and rings for hours. The Bell is nice though. The china sounds to thrown. The hats are alright. I think I might try some sabian b8.
I bought these cymbals about a year ago for strictly recording. I recently started playing drums for a shoegaze/lo fi band and they held up for about four months. The cymbals sound pretty decent and the ride's bell is amazing, but my ride cracked in two places at the same time, and my crash has roughly a one inch crack. I play pretty hard, but these seem thin and weak. I would recommend something heavier like z customs.
Hy I've had ZBT crash symbals before, they really dont work on the type of music I play, Sevenfold, BFMV ect. the sound is to small copared to the rest of the kit and I had mine for a little over 4 months and I split it in half.. I have a Sabian now and it's amazing. So svae yourself some money and go with a thicker bigger crash if you play rock.
I play pretty heavy music, and the crash cymbal just cracked on my after 2 years -- however I never actually enjoyed it's sound. I love the ride and hi-hat cymbals, but the other two in this set were not worth it. I would save and buy something that will last longer, and sound better.
I bought this set about a year ago. I was just beginning so I pretty much just got what I could afford. But these are a great product, especially for the price and for beginners.My crash cracked about six months in, but I think that was just a fluke, and I sent it in and got a new one free.Some minor complaints:The ride rings a lotThe crash isn't very loud(but sounds very nice)the china is very screechy(Instead I would go for the zildjian ZBT set that has the free 18" crash)I really like the hi hats a lot!Overall great deal, and good product!
I got these about a year into drumming. They were great for me then. these are great for beginers, but not for advanced players. After about four years the crash cracked bigtime so...the ride sucks for hardcore crash/riding, but they are great for beginers.
I got this set because of the cheap price and the free china.they are pretty good cymbals, but they have a few problems...the ride rings for hoursthe crash is pretty quiet unless you hit really hard.the hi-hats make a whiny sound when i step on the peddle.and the china sounds like a dying bird....but if you are just starting and are tight on money, then get this.if you have the denaro to spend, then fucking spend it on something better.
I have use these cymbals for over a year now. And they have giving me great sound. Sure they aren't the best cymbals, but they do the job, and do it well. But I do have some complaints about these cymbals...1. My bag broke2. The ride has a LOT of ring to it.Over all they are good cymbals for a drummer who is on a budget
I started with these, I have been play for 5 months and this is what I started with, I don't really like them and my crash cracked a couple weeks ago. I play everyday but that still no reason for it to break so fast...good value but not good cymbals.
I didn't like a single one of these cymbals. Crash- Cracked in about 2 monthsHi Hat- Horribly clangy and muddyChina- Worst china I have ever heard. I drop it on the floor behind people as a practical joke.Ride- Probably the best part, but it rings like a church bell.Bag- Broke..... I had some Sabian B8s before I got these. The B8s had a much better sound and better quality.
