not too bad

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

I bough this ZXT ride used and at first I absoultly hated it. I am all about best sound for the least amount of money, which is why I bought it. I tried it out and it had way way way too much decay for my likeing. I fixed that problem with a strip of masking tape. It still dosent sound like pink floyd but it is much better. you should also know that i play with nylon tipped sticks and i think it sounds better with those....in fact with wood tips each beat lacks definition. Also this ride losses its finish fast if not properly cared for, buy some polish for it. Overall a pretty good deal...it just needed some tweeking.

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

This was a real let-down. I expected so much more since I love Zildjian. The bell just has no volume or "ping" to it. And what good is a ride with no bell?

good for price

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

really nice sounding ride, the bell does not have very much volume though and it does have a bit of a ring that lasts, but really nice for the price

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

My friend recently bought one of these, and, while he says he loves it, I hate it. It has lousy stick definition, an annoying decay, and the bell is awful. They compare it to a dry ride in the summary, but it's not really. Pass this one up.

Really nice ride.

By abuabcar

from Gibsonia, PA

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

This is a really really nice ride. It has great pitch and good sustain. It has a really slow decay. It shimers with each hit. I would recommend this ride to anyone. I think it is one of the best sheet rides that zildjian makes. The bell on it is unbelievable. Very very loud! It has a nice appearance and will be a great asset to your set. i recommend it fully.

Zildjian-Always Good

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

I bought it for around $**, the "ping" cuts, the bell does too, but you can mildly hear the overtones unless it's drowned by the raving of guitars. For my budget, which is always less than $***, this isn't a bad cymbal at all. It's Zildjian. It has great stick definition, the ping is good, if you're a bell rider, not for you. Overall its a great buy.

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Control Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal was not even close to what I expected. I bought it to replace my Sabian B8 ride, and was very disapointed when this ride sounded WORSE! Worse than my B8. It does have decent decay, but the bell is worthless. There is no ping to it and it cant cut through any hard style of music. If you are thinking about getting this cymbal, get a B8 ride instead. Cheaper and better.
