speachless, cause its so loud I cant talk

By edge youth

from Clifton, VA

Comments about Zildjian Z3 China Cymbal:

This china is described by the words loud, bright, trashy, harsh, brutal, cutting, white noise, and LOUD AGAIN!!! In a stadium, I could hear it from the top row in the highest tier. It carried over into the entire concert stage, reaches out of the pit and fills into the show. This china will destroy anything in its path with its glassy, trash punch.

gorgeous zildjian cymbal

By Kyle

from Walnut Creek, CA

Comments about Zildjian Z3 China Cymbal:

With the Z3 China Cymbal, Zildjian takes hundreds of years of cymbal crafting experience and applies it to a relatively new idea (in their 250+ year timeline) for a cymbal. The result is a china that is not only sharp in its hiss but carries a distinct resonance that echoes more than any other brand of china I've heard. This cymbal is undeniably one of the highlights of Zildjian's Z3 line. If you're going to more than two hundred on a china get your moneys worth with Zildjian.

Very Nice China


from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Comments about Zildjian Z3 China Cymbal:

Great cymbal, loud, projects very nicely, the decay is quick. Its great for playing hard rock or metal. I can use it for slower more ambient music or hard and fast and it sounds great either way.
