        Developed in the Zildjian Sound Lab for versatility, durability, and sonic brilliance.

        The Zildjian ZXT Thin Crash Cymbal puts out a smooth crash sound with a fast decay. The ZXT Series offers more distinct models than any previous Zildjian sheet bronze selection. Each reflects unique lathing lines and distinctive hammering patterns designed to accentuate their sound properties. They look different because they sound different, because they are different. But the bright, powerful voice they share – the ZXT alloy- is as mighty as any Zildjian.

        Note: For ZXT Titanium series cymbals, use only water and/or water based window cleaners such as glass cleaner. Dry thoroughly after wiping with a damp cloth and watch your cymbals shine!

            Please notice that everyone who actually marks their experience with this cymbal as, "I own it" has given it a very good review... there is a reason for this. The ZXT series is an excellent product, but has a lot of overtone, meaning that if you hit this cymbal dry, it sounds horrible. But if you just give your bass drum a good whack at the same time (which if you've been drumming for any longer than six days, you should already be doing) the cymbal sounds just fine. Play the cymbal with a band accompanying you and all the overtone disappears and you're left with a rich, gorgeous sound that projects into the back of the room. That's why I own an entire set of these.

            Sounds like an open hi hat cymbal not a crash. No body no force just the same high pitch ringing of hitting a zxt top hi hat open. I bought it to add on to my other zxts and its horrible. I should have got it for free since i bought the zxt pack here. It promised a free 14 inch zxt crash with mail in rebate. But get this the rebate had an experation date and it was expired when i got the pack! So i had to pay full price for it.Anyway I tried using it in some riffs with my band and just doesnt sound good. I think the sabian b 8 14 inch thin crash is way better and i love zildjian cymbals. Its sitting to the side in brand new condition. Thats how bad it is. What a waste of money and it hurts to see this is a zildjian product.

                I got this as a "deal of the day", so i am happy with it. If i had paid full list price, i would have been disappointed with quality. My son likes it, and we are slowly building up his kit, so it is fine for now.

                I was hoping for a cymbal that was a faster response. This one will work but if I find a better one I will end up using it for a HH top.

                    One reviewer already nailed it, "sounds like a church bell". The bell/gong-ish overtone doesn't do it for me. Some reviewers have stated that it doesn't sound too bad if its not played on its own. I don't agree. If you have to hit other drums or cymbals at the same time to mask the sound of this cymbal then you're just masking the poor sound of the cymbal. I should have tried it out at the store before I bought it.

                      Zildjian has great products and at the price that I paid for this cymbal it is fantastic. The tone variation accross the face is great and it has good sustain. From the rim to the middle it can be loud, depending on the strike. At the center it has a bell-like tone that is fantastic for fill or ride, without being overbearing. It does well with brushes, too.

                      i bought this the other day to add a faster and more subtle crash to my set up and so far im happy with it it does have a bad overtone but you wont notice it unless you hit it by its self it doesnt cut thru loud mixes well but thats not what i was lookin for it sounds good when hit with other cymbals to add a fuller crash sound overall if your on a budget and are lookin for a thin crash this is for you im happy with my purchase

                      Comments about Zildjian ZXT Thin Crash Cymbal:

                      Well, I bought this cymbal for a second crash cymbal to go along side my other 16 inch zildian cymbal. This cymbal looks nice, and at first it'll sound fine. But after a few sessions of using it, you'll start to notice how quiet it is. I hit it as hard as possible once and it matched the volume of hitting a different cymbal with average strength. Then during one of my drum lessons about 3-4 months after buying it, my drum teacher noticed a fairly large crack circling right around the bell. All in all, it's ok for the price, but don't expect to have it for a while. I'm gonna just save up and buy some A Series Zildians next time.

                      Comments about Zildjian ZXT Thin Crash Cymbal:

                      I own, what I think are the best cymbals from Zildjian, the A Custom series. I have a 6" splash, a 10" splash, a 16" crash, an 18" crash, and an 18" China... I thought I'd try something outside of the box and get something cheaper to see how it would play with my cymbals. And when I play the ZXT with my A Customs, it sounds like a church bell... I'm not sayin it's a bad cymbal, it's just WAY different than my A Customs... Just a warning to all you trying to get a new kind of cymbal like me...

                      This is a a great cymbal. Ive had it for a little under a year. It has very bright sound to it. It has some overtone to it, but it makes it sound good because of it brightness. I dont recommend hitting hard because it can dent if you hit it really hard, but then again it is a thin cymbal, but over its great for all drummmers.

                      Not for me, but not bad at all.

                      Comments about Zildjian ZXT Thin Crash Cymbal:

                      I got this back when they were 65$. I figured I would get it. Well I play alot of heavy stuff, and still use this. It has a VERY quick decay, and is easily lost in the mix. That being said, all of my other crashes are Z Customs, and made for volume, so its nothing against this. I am surprised at how well it has held up, and also it does not make a bad bottom hi-hat either.
