Planet Z is Zildjian's introductory line into their huge array of cymbals. Designed to meet the needs and budgets of developing drummers, they're forged from a durable copper- and zinc-based alloy. They're shaped and lathed into bright, exciting-sounding instruments.

The Panet Z Ride delivers clear stick definition on top of underlying tones that don't get out of control. Use the loud, piercing bell for patterns and accents or play towards the outer edge for a washy, high-volume wall of sound.

Comments about Zildjian Planet Z Ride:

I've had this cymbal for a while. And it has pretty good sound for the price. I needed a new one for a show. Because my old one cracked on the bus. So i went out and just bought this one, so i could use it for my show. And i haven't bought a new one. I like this one. It sounds just like a ride should. It's got a nice crisp sound to it.


Not too bad, for the price

Comments about Zildjian Planet Z Ride:

This ride is OK. For anyone looking for a decent ride, at the lowest possible price, this is the one to get. It's a good first ride, especcially for beginners, but I don't reccomend it if you already have a ride and want another. It's not a ride on which you can find the sound for any style you want, but you can get close. Like the title says, a pretty good ride the price.


cant go wrong with zildjian

Comments about Zildjian Planet Z Ride:

First of all, the sound that this cymbal has is just awesome, especialy for that price. It has a very nice crisp and very good stick definition and projection when played live. The bell is kind of different but the ride is just right, the way a ride supposed to sound. BUY IT!


Great Sound

Comments about Zildjian Planet Z Ride:

Bought this cymbal for my cousin. He needed a ride and didnt have a lot of money. he absolutely loves it! It has a great sound and tone, very well worth 2-3 times what we paid. Zildjian did a great job with this 20 inch ride.


Very Surprising

Comments about Zildjian Planet Z Ride:

Recently got this from my friend when I needed a replacement ride until my Sabian's came in, and considering he's had this for six years, and it's still sounding perfect, I'd say it's a pretty amazing cymbal. Many people are skeptical at first about these Planet Z's because they're so cheap and considered "Beginner". But don't be fooled, these are just as high quality as Zildjian's four times the price. I'm an extremely hard hitter, and like things loud, and this ride can take a beating, & is perfect for those loud players. make sure you've got a good stand, cause it is fairly heavy. Overall this can easily compare to Sabians and high-end Zildjians, and is definitely worth the money, it has a perfect bell/ring sound and if you hit the sides perfectly it's comparable to a crash-ride. This is perfect for beginners, intermediate players, and even pros alike, it won't let you down.
