Bottom line, this cymbal is amazing. In terms of responsive, you can't beat this cymbal. When you crash it there is no weird lag or feel of hitting a brick wall like a larger ZBT. If i were anybody looking into ZBT or ZXT just wait and save for any ZHT. They are bright, fast(like the name says), and could compare to an A or maybe even A custom. For anybody who says bad about this cymbal they are completely wrong i couldn't say one bad thing. i hit hard and have had this cymbal almost a year and not even a minor dent and i play almost every day. In the studio this cymbal kicks butt it cuts straight through everything else when and quickly dies away. All in all, i would say this cymbal for the money is the greatest cymbal ive ever played, there is not one thing wrong and everything right don't think twice about another cymbal.

I bought this to take the load off of one of my "A" 15" cymbals that has a crack in it. I currently use a 12" A Custom Splash, a 16" Avedis Medium Thin Crash, a 16" K Dark Custom Crash, a 15" A Custom cymbal (with crack) and now have added this. I read plenty of reviews before purchasing and the masses seemed happy with it.

For my taste, it is too bright, almost tinny and close to a splash cymbal in sound, but not quite. I play classic rock and blues, and this is almost like having a trash crash: something that isn't used excessively (which I don't have, since they sound like garbage can lids to me). It does seem to be pretty good quality, as can be expected with Zildjian.

So, this is a cymbal will be used sparingly here and there, and I wont rely on it as much as the Med-Thin, A Custom and K Dark Crash during a song. I hope that this review has helped any potential buyers.

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I've been playing drums for over 30 years, and I normally wouldn't even consider playing the ZBT, ZXT, ZHT lines, but I got this one for free. My initial impression was, "this might just work." The fast crash is thin and bright...it even looks good. I'm not so sure it compares to an A or K, but the brightness and cutting power can definitely be used in certain situations. I have it paired with a Sabian AA Thin crash, and they compliment each other nicely (I like the Thin crash better, though). The ZHT still has a gong-ish, dark overtone in the background of its brightness. I don't evern know how that happens - bright with dark overtone...strange. It dissipates quickly, but I'd rather not have that altogether. If you need a bright crash on a tight budget, it's worth looking into, but I wouldn't rely on it as my primary go-to crash.

      Great supplemental cymbal

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

      While I wouldn't use it as my sole light crash, it ads a nice color, almost like a bright ride. I keep it next to my full 20" ride for more options, when the regular ride is too dark for the room.

        I am happy to finally have a complete set of Zildjain cymbals, ranging from 14" to 22". With my set I do have 2-ZHT and 4-ZXT, 3-14", 16" 18" 20" and 22"both are fine makes of cymbals for the price. I have yet to crack or chip one with my playing style.

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

            I have an 18" ZHT crash and it is a little dark sounding. So when this ZHT 17" fast crash came on sale I thought i'd try it. It was such a good price I couldn't turn it down. Well it turned out to be a nice bright sounding cymbal. I wouldn't call it a fast crash because it doesn't have a short decay. But it does sound better than the other ZHT's. It sounds more like my 18" 'A' Zildjian.

                I have a decent ludwig starter set with a Zildjan ZBT 22" ride and 18" crash. The 14" hi-hats are quite good and responsive, but the cymbals are like gongs and heavy. I am not a metal smasher, crisp, tight and ghosty is more my style. I replaced my snare with a used Steve Jordan 13 x 6 with a remo sound control head which brought me to a whole new level. This fast crash which I use as a primary crash (currently) is on that same level. For low price, so, so worth it. Great sustain and responsiveness. Love it

                          I owned a 15-inch Zildjian A many, many years ago. When I went looking for one, I came across this ZHT crash cymbal. Overall, the sound & feel weren't too bad, but it was a bit dark. I am not a heavy hitter, and I only play once per week. Sadly, the cymbal cracked after 3-4 years, For this reason, I cannot recommend this cymbal.
