brutal cymbal

By jason copenhaver

from cincinnati ohio

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

this cymbal cuts through anything. it is a powerhouse of volume. i bought the 19 inch one and i have no regrets at all. it has a great response to crescendos and a great sustain. it does take a little getting used to since its so powerful. i love how durable it is since im an extremely hard hitter. ive had it for months using it in both pit percussion and my own personal set. it sounds amazing and really fits in with hardcore/metalcore music. im going to get more z3 cymbals because of this one

Great sound but somewhat fast breaking.

By Eli Rowell

from Du Bois, Illinois

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 17 and 19 inch crashes to replace my a customs for a darker more rock sound. Thats exactly what i got and i was very pleased. Until about 4 months into playing my 19" crash it got a huge radial crack in it. They sound great don't get me wrong. But being thicker cymbals they have a more tendency to break if you're a heavy hitter.

Bright like the sun...

By TillBecker

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

this cymbal has a very very bright sound....it is perfect for loud music like metal. And it cuts through the mix like a knife through butter during live performances. and the brilliant finish is a plus. the overtones on this cymbal are worse than the zbts and b8s and are kind of annoying, but all in all it still sounds VERY good. I recommend it!!!!!

Personally, not for me.

By AZildjianDrummer

from Nashville, IL

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of these crashes. They just don't fit in with what i play. i got the 17 and 19 inches and don't get me wrong they do sound good compared to the z customs. They just aren't for me. the 19 to me just feels too heavy when i hit it. like im hitting a swinging brick almost. I'll stick with a custom medium crashes.

These cymbals ROCK!

By Mikey

from Upland Ca.

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I have the 19" Z3 Medium crash and I couldn't be happier! I use all Z-Custom crashes so when I decided to replace one I tried a 19" A-Custom(too thin sounding) before trying this Z3. I definately like the Z3's better than the Z-Customs. They look realy cool and sound GREAT! Open up quickly with a nice wash.

Great Crash For the Rocker

By Ryan

from USA

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I have a 17" Z Custom medium crash and was looking for a smaller, brighter sounding crash as an addition for my set, I was hoping to get another Z Custom, but figured out that they discontinued them. So i ended up researching it and found that the Z3's are the upgrade of the Z Customs. So I bought the 16". This crash is very bright sounding, and was just what i was looking for. It has a good, fast attack with short decay. I would definitely recommend the Z3 Medium Crash to any metal or rock drummer.
