OVERVIEW

Random hammering creates authentic 'Chinese' sounds!

The Zildjian ZHT China cymbal creates metallic explosions with trashy dark overtones.

For their ZHT series Zildjian chose Ultimate Sheet Bronze, an alloy with a higher tin content for enhanced low- and mid-frequencies. This extraordinarily musical metal is combined with ultra-modern manufacturing techniques and extensive hammering to create value-priced cymbals with sounds that are both modern and traditional.

This is a fine addition to any drum set. I like the accent and the looks. Either right side up or upside down the sound is remarkable and a must have to any cymbal collection. I highly recommend it.

I've always played Wuhan chinas but after reading some positive reviews on the ZHT i decided to give it a shot. A 16" Wuhan only lasts me a few months before a crack develops so i figured i'd spend more money and get something that lasts. I bought the 16" ZHT and put it on my kit right away.. And then took it off and put my broken Wuhan back on! The ZHT is pingy and rings waaaaaaay too long. I play hardcore/metalcore mostly and use the china for breakdowns more than just for an accent. So if you're looking for an effect cymbal for the same reasons, DO NOT waste your money on this. WUHAN is a much better sounding cymbal and muuuuuch cheaper.

Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

This cymbal sounds fine, but it is not very sturdy(which seems to be a problem with Zildjian). It sounds great, but after a few weeks of play time it has some very obvious dents. It has not cracked, but I'm sure that will come soon. Overall, a fine cymbal if you're on a budget.

Tinny China

Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

This China is terrible. The sound is very tinny and bright, not trashy at all. This sounds more like hitting a China plate than it does a cymbal. PROS: Very shinyCONS: Sounds terribleIf you're on a budget go with Wuhan. If you're not on a budget, go with Wuhan. Best sounding and best priced chinas.

Decent cymbal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

I got this china around 6 months ago with the EFX that comes with it in some packages. The EFx broke the next week, but the china has yet to crack, and I beat that thing to death. Its super loud and rings a lot in the garage but on stage it sounds amazing!!! Although I do prefer Wuhan for all of my effects cymbals, this one is not bad, especially for the price.

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

      I just got mine today and it has a beautiful brilliant finish and it sounds great very loud whch is good for my kind of music, so you don't have to put much effort into hitting it, its a solid cymbal so it shouldn't crack but get a warranty just in case.

      Great, but a bit loud

      By Anonymous

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

      This China has a very good sound, but seems a bit too loud. I have two Avedis Zildjian Crashes which are of the perfect volume, but this china seems to be too cutting and hurts my ears a bit.Unless you want to perform ear-splitting metal songs, I would look for a china with less volume.

      Great China!

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Cymbal:

      This is by far one of the best chinas I've ever played. You probably wouldn't think it to be that good at all, being that its a ZHT, but I've played Orinetals, AAs, A customs, and Wuhans, and this is just as good as any of them at half the price. Durable, loud, cheap, and best of all, it doesn't sound like a trash can lid! I'm very pleased with this and I'd deifinatley replace it with the same one if it broke, which is unlikeley. Buy it now.
