Affordable bronze cymbal set with 10” splash and 14” trash crash
Once you’ve fitted your drum kit with the essentials, you will naturally go looking for more exciting sounds—that’s why Musician’s Friend is excited about the Zildjian I Series Expressions effects cymbal pack. This set includes a super-quick splash cymbal and a trashy, complex “trash crash” that can double as a hi-hat top. This value pack is an excellent choice for beginners, students and anyone who wants to shake up their cymbal sound on a budget.
Two wildly different effects in one value packWhile budget cymbals are commonplace in the three basic types, many of the most striking effects cymbals are locked at higher prices. That’s the value of this I Series Expressions pack—it includes a 10” splash and 14” trash crash, giving you two new effects with one affordable purchase. Both crafted from B8 bronze, these cymbals offer contrasting sounds. The splash is quick and bright, and it decays only moments after being struck. This is makes it perfect for speedy accents. The trash crash is a different beast—it attacks with a complex, trashy sound that refuses to be ignored. Together, these cymbals broaden what you can do with your kit, no matter how you play.
Zildjian’s thinnest entry-level cymbal lineMany professional drummers prefer thin cymbals for complex tone and quicker response. Thinner cymbals vibrate more freely, creating washier, trashier, more evocative soundscapes. With a name taken from Ilham, the Turkish word for inspiration, the I Series cymbals introduce those benefits into a line of budget cymbals. From the exciting accent cymbals to the washy, versatile rides, this thin cymbal line is designed to help you find your signature sound.
World-renowned craftsmanship that students can affordEven though the I Series comes at a price geared toward first-time drummers and students, these cymbals are 100% authentic Zildjian in every aspect. They’re made with sheet bronze at the same USA factory as professional Zildjian lines like K and A Custom. They’re made with time-honored hammering and lathing techniques, executed by precision machinery. When you buy from the I Series, you are joining a cymbal-making legacy that stretches back centuries.
The first step in finding your soundAs a student-focused line, the I Series is crafted with your future in mind. That’s why the series focuses on versatile sounds and flashy effects, giving players a wide range of textures to experiment with and find their personal style. These entry-level cymbals will give you the tools to grow as a drummer—the rest is up to you.
