Cymbals are a crucial part of any kit. Adding color and accents to your playing style, they can also help keep the pace for your entire band. Without a quality set of cymbals, you're missing out on half the fun of setting up behind a drum kit and putting four on the floor. That said, it can be difficult to know exactly which cymbals are right for you, which is why purchasing them as part of a cymbal pack can be so beneficial. Cymbal packs take a lot of the guess work out of purchasing gear. Because many cymbals are built with different techniques, there is no guarantee that the cymbals you purchase individually are going to complement one another. On the other hand, when you purchase a package of cymbals, you can rest assured that they are going to work well together and help your fills and rolls behind the kit really stand out.
Because there are so many different cymbal packs available here, you shouldn't have any trouble finding exactly the ones that work for you. That being said, having an idea of the sound you're after can make the selection process even easier. For example, if you are building your first kit and looking for the absolute necessities, you needn't look much further than the Paiste PST 3 Essential Cymbal Set 13/18. This set includes hi-hats with a bright, clear sound, as well as a crash/ride cymbal with an even, balanced feel, all at a price that won't break the bank. These are the two cymbals you see in almost every style of kit, making them a must have for your new set-up. Of course, if you're looking for a more comprehensive set of cymbals you'll want to check out the SABIAN Xs20 Complete Cymbal Set. Whether you're upgrading your old kit or building your first, this set has everything you need.

In this section you'll find packs that are perfect for any percussionist. Whether you're a fan of a specific drummer (Such as Neil Peart, John Bonham or Travis Barker, each of whom have their own signature packages) or certain playing styles, purchasing a pack of cymbals can save a lot of hassle and let you focus on rocking the beat.
