I play Zildjian cymbals and have for 20+ years. I have also played Paiste cymbals which are a great. I guess after so many years I am just stuck on my Zildjians. I will say that I am a pretty heavy hitter, and I have only cracked maybe 2 or 3 Zildjians. I have played everything from their low-end sheet cymbals to their most expensive cast cymbals (which I currently play) and the performance has been awsome. I am not discouraging anyone from trying other cymbals, see what fits you. For me....Zildjian is my tried and true way to go in cymbals. Peace.

I play Zildjians; a mix of As and Ks. I am having fun finding the good stuff people have traded in; some Ks which were made in the early 1990s. Mostly the A line has remained unchanged, but, along with the new look, the K Zildjian line has been cheapened up in my opinion. I have some Mastersound Ks that I had autographed at the NAMM show last winter.

zildjians are great, but sabian has a much better warranty policy.

Zildjian all of the way. Great sounds and great variety. If you can't find a sound that you want from their selection then I feel for you. Check them out!
It's so important to make best friends in life!

I've also heard great things about 80's Avedis, although I don't like much the newer ones except for my 14 paper thin and my 18 china low. Animal is right - these are great chinas.


i have a few Ks and k customs. i love my k custom dry ride. i also have some late 70s As, a 20" pang,17" crash. those are two of my favorite cymbals. my 20" a custom china is so loud and cutting. i like almost all zildijan products (except the z customs)
