      Precise ride tones and dynamics for less. A great all-purpose ride!

      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. The ZBT Ride delivers a medium high-pitched tone with precise, clean stick definition.

      The bright, intense, high-pitched sound of the ZBT series cymbals cuts through the mix of other instruments. Sheet origin and precision lathing techniques create high-volume projection that speaks quickly and brightly with a rapid decay. 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. Superb all-purpose ride cymbal. Excellent, clean stick articulation with controlled overtones. ZBT-Plus cymbals take Zildjian Bronze Technology up a notch with advanced hammering and lathing, and enhanced sound for versatility, musicality, and professional performance.


      Ride to the top of the pack on a quality cymbal. Order now. Don't get taken for a ride - order yours from us today!

      This ride cymbal is an absolute piece of scrap metal. The sustain in this thing lasts like 10 seconds of a gentle hit, and is all ugly overtones. The bell sounds like a cheap cowbell. Don't even thing of crashing it, unless you want to give yourself a case of premature hearing impairment. Even the Paiste 101 ride is better than this.

      In the past year I've "managed" to break 2 of these. My band plays gigs pretty frequently, but there's no way I've pushed two of these cymbals past their reasonable limit. If you play with any force at all, don't get this cymbal. Spend a little bit more and get something with a cleaner tone and a longer life.And I don't think it needs to be said again, but I'll go ahead: the overtones and ring of this ride are lousy. There's basically 0 stick definition, and after just a couple of hits any ride work turns to one solid, ugly sound.Not good live. Not good in the studio.

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      Hey guys. Ive had this cymbal scince had a different logo, the first zbt logo. This cymbal is ONLY for beginners. It has no stick definition and a really bad ping. It rings alot and after lots of hitting and just sounds really ugly. Instead, try a cheap Meinl HCS of a Sabian if your on a budget. Or, go to Zildjian.com and look for one. There are tabs that have a recording of a quick preview of what it sounds like so theres not any guesswork. If your not on a budget get A Customs.Overall just a bad ride cymbal. There's just no sound definition.

      Pretty Good Ride

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      I think that it is very good, considering it is Zildjian's lowest range of cymbals. It is extremely ringy, so if you use it as a crash, you better have ear-plugs in. But as a beginner ride cymbal, I'd say it is pretty good.

      OK for Begginers

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      I have had this cymbal for almost three years. When I got it, I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. Now I realize what it is. It is great for beginers, but as a started playing more, I realized that it wasnt that great, compared to a Zcustom. I just craked it today though it did it job for three years. If you can do it though, go for a z or a custom. Theyre amazing.

      Nice For The Price

      By redrick2030

      from Baltimore, MD

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      Sure there are way better, and nore expensive rides out there, but this one is more than usable, and I can't understand how or why anybody could break one of these, unless the Incredible Hulk is playing death metal on them . They are very heavy, built like a tank, and can take a lot of punishment. My first impression of this thing was that the sound was a little darker than my usual taste, but after hearing how nice this cymbal records, my opinion changed. Sounds very nice in a mix with a sweet ping. This is true of a lot of cymbals I've found, they project a way better tone to your audience/ recording mics than what you hear initially while you're playing the kit.

      ZBT 20

      By Drummerboy-c6mWs

      from Canada, eh?

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      I have used this ride on my church's set, and it was pretty good. It doesn't compare to the Sabian B8 ride-if you're thinking about getting the ZBT, get the B8 instead, seriously-The B8 only costs a little bid more but it's extremly worth it. If you have enough $$, go for the Sabian AAX, or Zildjian K custom-much better quality-you won't be disapointed with those. The ZBT ride has an okay ride sound, but has alot of ring. It has a good bell, nice and loud but still alot of ring. Overall, not that bad, but you should get something better.

      The Zildjian ZBT ride is a good cymbal. It also has a good price. It leaves some money in your wallet so you can afford a stand also!I say, buy it. It sounds great, especially the bell, and it is a great price!

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

      Dont' get me wrong this is a good beginner cymbal, and it's also a good value. The bow of this ride is not that great, it sounds too ringy. The bell is actually really awesome, not the greatest but it's still better than you would expect. If you have been playing fr a while don't get this, save up and buy something you will love. If you're a begginer or just low on cash get this ride.
