Medium Zildjian Cymbals
Since medium-weight cymbals are some of the most versatile, it stands to reason they'd be available in all the major styles. A look through this section is enough to show that's the case, with a strong roster of crashes, effect cymbals and hi-hats to choose from. But it's in ride cymbals where Zildjian's medium-weight line really shows its strength: from the beginner-friendly Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal to the high-end Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal, that's the type where you'll find the most variety here. On the other hand, we could definitely make a case that the other cymbals come in smaller numbers because once you've gotten it right, there's nowhere else to go!
As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle, and in Zildjian's case, it's just a matter of making sure that there are enough medium-weight cymbals in each class to suit as many playing styles as possible. Considering the way different cymbals contribute to performances, that means some will need more varieties than others to make sure every player can find the perfect tone. But one thing's for sure: if you want a set of cymbals that can play just about anything and sound great doing it, you can't go wrong with a kit built around Zildjian medium-weight cymbals.
