OVERVIEW

Ultra-modern cymbal crafting techniques have yielded a surprisingly affordable and high-quality medium-heavy ride.

This 22-in. medium heavy ride is the largest sheet cymbal available from Zildjian. The ZHT Ultimate sheet bronze cymbals are composed of 88% copper and 12% tin. Boasting a higher tin content than previous sheet bronze models, ZHTs are created with ultra-modern crafting techniques and extensive hammering, resulting in a more musical sound. ZHT is the only Zildjian sheet bronze series in a traditional finish.

The medium heavy weight of this ride allows for excellent articulation, wash, and ping as well as a strong overall presence. Its 22-in. diameter provides plenty of projection.

FEATURES
  • 22-in. diameter
  • Largest sheet cymbal available from Zildjian
  • 88% copper, 12% tin
  • Medium-heavy weight
  • Fully lathed and hammered Bronze 12 alloy
  • Excellent articulation, wash, and ping
  • Strong presence
  • Good projection

Ride off into the sunset with this fantastic cymbal.

I have owned this ZHT for over a year. I have spent hundreds of dollars on other cymbals. This cymbal for the price is great . I play classic rock music in a bar band. I love the bell, and the entire sound of the cymbal. Would recommend this cymbal to any other drummer, and I have been playing drums since I was nine years old, I am fifty one now and have played plenty of rides before. This is my favorite.

Obviously I'm somehow out of sinc with those who have rated this 5-stars. It has one sound. It sounds like the bell no matter where you hit it. I'm guessing it weighs 8-10 pounds and is rigid as a piece of steel. A real one-horse pony. I used mine to experiment with by over-hammering it to make it somewhat usable just to play around with at home (and I put a K on it).

Great ride for any music!

By TLATS6667

from Murrieta, CA

Comments about Zildjian ZHT Ride 22":

This ride is very durable and very nice. I've had it for about 4 years, this cymbal still retains its good sound after years of playing. I've used other rides like meinl, paiste, and sabian, and this one has been my favorite so far. It's a great ride for it's price and it's worth evry penny.

Comments about Zildjian ZHT Ride 22":

Wow...just wow! All I can say is get this ride, the 22". It's the best of the ZHT's. In the series, I suggest the rides and the mastersound hats. An amazing price for such an amazing ride. The whole series is THE BEST you will find for this price, no cymbals by anyone at this price are better. The only con about the SERIES is that the crashes and china isn't great. But that's probably just me. I've never been a huge fan of Zildjian's crashes or chinas; I'm with Sabian on that page! Anyways, this is my favorite ride in the world. An old Sabian HH 22" Lepoard Ride barely matches. So much clarity and ping, almost no wash unless you make it wash!

    A Great Rock Ride

    • Rock Drumming

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Ride 22":

    This ride has a great ping attack, but it's response is louder than more expensive Zildjian cymbals. Best suited for rock drumming, it's too bright and responsive for jazz or acoustic settings. Very little stick effort needed to get volume. It's heavy, too...almost 10 lbs.

      Great Cymbal

      By brady mcwilliam

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian ZHT Ride 22":

      This is a great cymbal. I play in a Hardcore band and use this as my main crash. I don't ride it at all but it has a very good ride as well. Nice big and heavy cymbal, lound and lots of sustain. which is what i was looking for in a cymbal. The bell is extremely good sounding. The only thing I have a problem with is when you crash it, it has a ringy sound and less of a wash sound. But it is very minor and it still sounds amazing. Very good buy if you're looking for a big cymbal with lots of sustain.

          Excellent ride cymbal for the money. I was skeptically at first but very pleased once I received it. If you need a good ride cymbal on a tight budget, take a hard look at this cymbal.

                      I really like this ride cymbal. I bought the 22 and compared it to my Paiste Signature 20 and my Zildjian K custom dark 20. I like all three but there is something special about the ZHT. I play classic rock covers in night clubs and it will be my go to ride.
