Trashy effects crashes with aggressive hammering and other experimental features

When looking for your first set of cymbals, it can be difficult to find exciting sounds without breaking the bank. That’s why Musician’s Friend is excited to recommend these Zildjian I Series EFX cymbals. By using experimental techniques from their high-end models, like aggressive hammering and sound holes, Zildjian brings exotic sounds to the budget player. These crashes are an excellent choice for beginners, students and anyone who wants trashy effects cymbals on a budget.

Don’t let the pros have all the fun

Once you anchor your first kit with a solid set of hi-hats, crash and ride, you will naturally want to explore more exotic sound options. But while budget cymbals are commonplace in those essential types, many of the most striking effects cymbals are locked at higher prices. That’s where these I Series trash crashes come in—they offer an aggressive, shimmering sound that can bring excitement to any genre, while keeping costs low. The larger crash features experimental sound holes, and the smaller 14” model is designed to double as an exotic hi-hat top. It shouldn’t cost a fortune to experiment with new sounds—and thanks to the I Series, it doesn’t.

Zildjian’s thinnest entry-level cymbal line

Many 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 afford

Even 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 sound

As 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.
