The Zildjian 12" Z3 Splash Cymbal has a larger than normal bell design that offers a robust and cutting splash effect while still presenting responsive and focused accents.

Zildjian's Z3 Cymbal Series achieves a new level of power and clarity with rock cymbals that retain an abundance of sensitivity and response. Using a design that can only be achieved with Zildjian's state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, the exciting Z3 cymbals are among the most musical and powerful rock cymbals ever produced.

The Zildjian Z3 cymbals' unique lathing process creates a more pronounced tonal groove design for great projection and power. A one-of-a-kind computer hammering process creates a special symmetrical hammering pattern.

Unique Splash!

By Joe

from Doylestown, Ohio

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Splash Cymbal:

The z3 splash is not an ordinary splash. It has elements of both a crash and splash cymbal. It has a great response, but like a crash, sustains for a little bit longer than any normal splash. The cymbal contains a dark overtone like the rest of the z# cymbals. Fits perfectly with my z3 set and i recommend this product all the way!

When metal met jazz

By edge youth

from Clifton, VA

Comments about Zildjian Z3 Splash Cymbal:

This is your jack in the box of cymbals. Small appearence and then it pops out to punch you in the face. I was able to hit this splash with my hand and it would respond in full body and volume. Mixing the raw aggression of the Z series with the petite sound qualities of a jazz splash. Along with its punch and power, it holds up more durably than other splashes because of its thin weight instead of the paper thin weight option for the majority of all splashes. Perfect from the stage and risers to the football field and club.
