The result is an exuberant cymbal that bursts with a classic voice that is pure, bright, and expressive. Its brilliant finish makes this cymbal gleam under the stage lights. 21".

  • Can't go wrong with big Z

    As reviewed by JoeyC on 2/18/2010

    this is seriously the most impressive cymbal i have ever played. It has a great crash sound, and great stick definition. The bell is descent and it looks amazing. The sound is so clean and it is great for any style of music, very versatile.

  • This really is a great cymbal!

    As reviewed by Ryan Monaghan on 2/26/2013

    I purchased this without hearing it first, based mostly on the favorable reviews I read about it. I have to say, it sounds better than I was expecting! I crash on it a lot, and for that purpose it sounds clean and it projects well. The bell is bright and has a great tone that really cuts through. I replaced my old Zildjian medium ride with this one, and the difference is night and day. definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new versatile crash/ ride. I really love it!

  • The best Ride and always will be!

    As reviewed by Barker44 on 10/31/2006

    I play in a band called +44 and I have been using this cymbal for about 5 years and LOVE it! It is good for a rock, punk rock sound which fit the band perfectly that I used to be in. I sometimes use my Zildjian K ride now, but most of the time I use this cymbal. It has a great "ping" sound, and when you hit it hard it has a perfect crashing noise that cuts through all the guitars and bass.
