ZHT are higher up then ZXT, BUT save and go get the Z custom, the sound is so much better, Take it from me I own 16in,18in,19, and 20in Z custom rock crashes and they are the shit! you will never buy another crash again.

i agree that Z customs are cool, but on the other hand, you're not going to play a jazz gig with Z customs are you?
I have both A custom and Z custom cymbals, which has me pretty much covered for any eventuality:D

They are awful, especially the crash:| at least the rides kind of useable. But thats about it.

I have both ZXT and ZHT on my kit, both 16" crash's. i like the sound of both and there diffrent from each other. they were with my kit when i bought them so im saving up to upgrade. the only thing i had to get rid of was the solar ride i had, got a good deal on a Peiste Alphaa ride and double bass pedal, both in inaculate condition - £75 for the 2!!!
on my hi hat ive taken this very old bottom hat i had which is about an inch think with a zbt rock top hat, i like the way it sound, which at the end of the day is all that matters.

any one go one advice on what i should be aiming to upgrade to??
thinkg of maybee AA's or AAX's ne ohter surgestions?
Pearl Export, Fusion 10", 12", 14", 16" and 24" bass

between ZHT and ZXT, ZHT is much better, well in my opinion. ZXT' break easy, I was so mad when my band and I started recording, I used a ZXT Crash, for a different sound, I hit it ounce, BAM! Big crack in it, was really upset.
