"Not durable, for beginners only"
Not a bad sounding symbal for the price, a lttle tinny.
no features here, just the cymbals.
I've actually written the company about this. This is a product for
beginners. The ZBT line of cymbal is not durable, played under normal use for eight months and the top Hi-Hat began to split. The
same happened to the 14" crash.
I am an experienced drummer and sent photos of the cracked cymbals
to the company. I purchased the cymbals for my 14 year old son who wanted to learn to play. I did not want a refund, I just wanted to let them know about the product. They blew me off and sent me a pamphlet on how to use the product correctly.
Any product that does not hold up under normal use to me is worthless. It makes no sense to purchase a product you have to replace with a more expensive one, this product cheapins the Ziljian
name. Musical products should be made to last, this product does not.
The Wow Factor:
Ziljian and Sabian both have come out with this new sheet bronze
cymbal to fill a void between bad cymbals and excellent cymbals.
They've missed on these products until they can make them durable.
The sound isn't bad for the price, you expect that. But you also
expect quality. These would be great for the 8-12 year old range.
They should be marketed that way
This is definately not the worst cymbal out there. But as I have
said before if you pay $100 for a set of Hi-Hats or $200 for a set
of ZBT's you expect them to last long enough until YOU decide you're
ready to up grade.
