I bought these awhile ago and I haven't been too impressed. The sound of the crash is alright, but the ride is just ungodly. The hi-hat isn't bad, but overall the sound of these cymbals are just terrible. Does anyone else agree with me?
I will take your advice and use it. The only reason I bought them is because I thought they looked cool, they were new and I wanted to show off to people. The only people who praised them were the people who had no idea about drums. I bought them off of Musician's friend, so I had never heard them. I figure next time I'll go to a music shop, play the cymbals and then purchase them for much cheaper over at Musician's Friend.The Heel":1sulu7bx said:Put them on Ebay and pray you find a sucker to take these off of your hands... or put them on your practice set. You can also plug the hole in the middle and use them at Superbowl parties to put dip chips in.
Some guys make clocks out them.
Some guys use them as frisbies.
Just dont use them as recording cymbals.
Cymbals are just another case of "You get what you pay for". Outside of a few Wuhan chinas I've never found myself happy with buying cheap cymbals. They're just junk. I'm not saying you have to buy the most expensive cymbals out there... just find something you like in the mid-range prices and go with it. And never buy ZXTs again.
Thats what I dont like about Zildjian. Their cymbals are either high end or low end, no intermediate (well theres the ZHT now, I've heard good things about them but never got to play them).phil-drummer":87k552k5 said:i wish zildjian wud lower the pirces of their gud cymbals , zbt and zxt are the only cymbals u can buy in bulk for me and their not that gud, this is a shame cuz i would like my cymbals to last more than a few years
I agree with Sprocket on the Sabian AA line. I own a pair of AA hats and they're amazing. Also, they're a little more expensive, but I have Sabian HHX Evolution crashes that are absolutely phenominal in both live and recording scenarios. You may want to check those out as well.Sprocket":apcb9945 said:...if you want damn good sound and great quality, go with the Sabian AA Rock Custom line. hard as hell to find, but if you do manage to find a full set of them, pick them up. it costs quite a bit, but it is worth it. i've been beating those things to hell for about two years now and theres not so much as a dent in a single one of them.
