Medium-thin bronze ride cymbal that works as a powerful crash and light ride
When looking for your first set of cymbals, you’ll want to cover all your bases without spending a fortune. That’s why Musician’s Friend loves the Zildjian I Series crash ride cymbal—it works as both a big crash and a light ride. With one purchase, this hybrid crash/ride gives you a big, powerful accent cymbal and a subtle, washy ride with just enough stick definition. It’s an excellent choice for beginners, students and anyone who wants a versatile cymbal that doesn’t break the bank.
The most versatile cymbal in your kitZildjian built this cymbal with the thinner profile that is typical in crash cymbals. That means you can strike the edge and it will cut through the music with a bright crash sound. But these crash-rides also feature wide diameters that are most common in ride cymbals. When playing the bow with the tip of the stick, the definition will be clear enough to excel as a ride cymbal. Combining the two techniques will let you hit accents and return to the groove, all with one cymbal. If you’re a new player on a budget and not sure what cymbal to get, this crash/ride is an easy buy.
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.
