Medium-weight bronze ride cymbal with clear stick definition and bright, washy tone
When looking for your first set of cymbals, it can be difficult to find a ride cymbal that makes an impression on a budget. That’s why Musician’s Friend loves the Zildjian I Series ride—it’s a clear, bright ride cymbal that can perform in a variety of genres. It’s a solid choice for beginners, students and anyone who wants a higher-pitched ride cymbal that doesn’t break the bank.
A ride to build your kit aroundWhen building your first drum kit, there is no partner more important than a solid ride cymbal. We pound out choruses. We practice jazz sticking patterns for hours on end. We use the bell to cut through the heaviest guitars. That’s why the Zildjian I Series ride is designed to follow you into new genres. Because of the medium weight, this ride can cut through the mix with a clear “ping,” but you can also lean into it to build a washy roar when you need to fill space. It pairs well with the thin I Series crashes.
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.
