Pitch Black cymbals were specifically designed to be coated, and played loud! Zildjian started with high-performance Bronze 12 alloy with its enhanced tin content and added weights, sizes, and profiles guaranteed to deliver the brightness and presence required for rock applications. Zildjian then developed a proprietary coating process that allows the cymbal to be durable and strikingly beautiful yet still open up like a cymbal should. This Pitch Black Ride is one of eight new models unlike anything you or your fans have ever heard or seen before. The only way Zildjian could make these any more rock would be to put leather pants on them.

Great Rock/Metal Ride

By Chance

from Desert Hot Springs, CA

Comments about Zildjian Pitch Black Ride Cymbal:

I own many top line cymbals and bought this one mainly for the look as long as it had a decent ride tone. This is designed for rock/metal and besides the 15"hi-hats, these are the best sounding in the pitch black series. Everything else is way beginner old school. So put on the hats and ride, the rest you want better quality in your crashes,chinas,and splashes. I am recording with this ride to see how it works there in my metal band. So far its loud and pingy live, yet to see in studio
