Overview

This Zildjian ZBT 3 Cymbal Pack includes an 18" crash ride and a pair of 13" hi-hats plus a free 14" crash. Sound grooves and round hammer strikes in a simple circular pattern on the top surface of ZBT cymbals magnify the basic sound of the distinctive ZBT alloy. ZBT Series Hi-Hats produce a sharp and focused sound with an excellent, bright chick sound. The ZBT crash ride cymbal produces a cutting ride sound with good crash qualities. The free 14" crash has a brilliant finish and provides easy playability-the perfect first crash cymbal.

The bright, intense, high-pitched sound of the Zildjian ZBT series cymbals cut through the mix. The sheet origin and lathing techniques create high-volume projection that speaks quickly and brightly when struck then decays rapidly. Since ZBT cymbals are pressed and lathed from sheets of uniform, high-quality bronze alloy, they are remarkably consistent.

The highly polished, brilliant finish looks fresh and offers excellent, clean stick articulation with controlled overtones.

Features
  • 18" crash ride
  • 13" hi-hats
  • Free 14" crash

This is the first cymbal pack I start with and I would suggest it for any new player. It gives you exactly what you need to start with without shelling out lots of money. The 14" crash is really good. Sounds great and you can wail on the thing. The high hats are ok. Good for starting out, but nothin special to them. The crash/ride sounds much better as a crash than it does a ride, but overall it's an average cymbal and is fairly versatile.

These cymbals were my first set that i ever bought. I played with them for about a year, but the first thing i noticed was that the ride too too long to decay and that the bell sounded horrible. The hi hats were a great deal for a starter kit but i do think that i would rather prefer a set of A customs or ZHTs. THe crash was amazing, nothing else i could ask for. Sadly, i cracked it about two weeks after the warranty but it was an awesome cymbal. Overall i would rate this pack 3/5, but i think that the ride is a waste of money.

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    I only wanted hints, a crash, and a crash-ride, so since I'm on a budget, this pack was the best one for me. Since these cymbals are lower end Zildjians, I expected them to have a low quality (most lower end cymbals sound like a trash can lid), but I was surprisingly pleased with the Zildjian ZBTs. The hi hats are crisp. The crash-ride is just what I was looking for. The 14" crash is a little to bright, but that may be because it's a 14" and I'm used to a 16". All three respond well and (if not overly hit), produce a decent sound that is far better than rest I was expecting. There is a distinct difference between these ZBTs and the A or K line, but for the price, these area great buy. If you're on a budget, these dill do you well. If money isn't too much of an issue, then the A or K line may be more up your alley. As for me, I've played the top of the line A, A Custom, and K, and find these ZBTs to be adequate. If you want decent quality that's budget friendly, then I think you will do well with these.

    I've read complaints on other reviews of drummers saying these crack. Look, if you don't hit the cymbals with such force as to "kill" or "smash" it, they won't crack. If you hit these (or any other cymbals) with excessive (unnecessary) force, then any cymbal will crack. Bottom line: these are good quality cymbals at a very reasonable price. If you take care of them as you would any instrument you care about, they will continue to produce good quality sound for you.

    For my little rocker

    By 

    from Titusville, FL

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    I bought the cymbals for my son who is a budding percussionist. He had a junior drum set and detroyed the cymals that came with the set. So I got him a regular size drum set and new cymbals for Christmas. I ordered them on line and they shipped the next day and arrived in a week. Probably would have arrived sooner but there were some Federal Holidays in the way. I am very happy with the quality and the sound of this Zildjian ZBT 3 Cymbal Pack. They feel extremely durable, the sound of the high hat is crisp and clean. The ride/crash has a nice ring to it. I am saving the crash cymbal to give to him for his birthday. For the money, you can't beat this starter set as it looks and sounds like top of the line quality.

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    Lets be honest this isn't a $800 pack, but for what its worth, I got a good year out of them. I really don't hit too hard, so no cracks, but I record live drums often. I must say that I always have my drummers using their cymbals for better sound. but for a live gig, just starting out, you'll get a thick sound that will get the job done. just be know you'll be ready to upgrade as you get better and get a feel/ear for other cymbal packs.

    Good, But Get Insurance On It

    By 

    from Columbiana, Ohio

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    The 13 Inch Hi-Hats For what I play (Pop [punk-Fusion Jazz) Are Quite Superb, The 18 Inch Crash Ride, well il be honest... I only use that as a crash, but has a nice bell, the 14 inch crash however shown problems. I do alot of Gigs, so therefore I need very durable cymbals. I bought my cymbal pack in December, but by Febuary my 14 Inch Crash Was terribly beaten up, several huge cracks emerged from the bell outwards. Thank God I got the warranty. The 14 inch cymbal was quite nice, and I suggest this for any beginer, so long u get the insurance, they will eventually break, but its a good one year or so investment. 4*'s

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    I had these for about 1 year now. The sound is great. Its looks awesome on your set. Nice and shiny. I think my only REALLY minor con is that my crash cracked in about 8 months, but I just found out im a really really hard hitter. So, if your a beginner then it will definitely last longer than that. So basically, theres nothing wrong with these if your on a budget, like most of us. :)

    Good starter cymbals

    By 

    from Auburn IN.

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    As my first cymbal purchase these werent bad. Ive had this pack for about a year and there still holding up. The hihats are great, no complaints there. They give me what i want and sound real nice. The crash is good for many applications and is by far a great sounding cymbal, although it has a long sustain. The crash ride on the other hand is not very good. the sustain is long and it rings alot. It doesnt sound good as a crash or a ride. If you are looking for Bronze starter cymbals i would go with the Sabian B8's. they arent as ringy. If you want to stay with Zildjian cymbals though try ZHT's or another series in the Zildjian family.

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    i just got these cymbals and after reading these reviews i was a little nervous. the cymbals appereantly break easily but thats only if you hit them extremely hard. these cymbals have a nice crips tone and are perfect for intermediate or beginning drummers. but if you buy the pro 4 cymbals or the rock 4 cymbals your are just wasting your money. i highly recommend these to anyone.

    Okay

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    I got these for christmas last year with my drum set. They were good for about 3 months until the crash and ride started cracking! These are the least durable cymbals! My crash, which I've had for 11 months now, has 7 cracks in it. It sounds like a splash cymbal now because there is no sustain whatsoever anymore. My ride has one large crack, now getting bigger. I mean, I guess I'm getting what I payed for and I was a beginner. But yeah, these are pretty bad.

    Excellent Quality Cymbals

    By 

    from Dallas, Texas

    Comments about Zildjian ZBT 3 Starter Bonus Cymbal Pack with Free 14" Crash:

    I bought this pack as a gift with some petty cash I had spare. This was BY FAR worth my money. If you are not used to a Drumset and need some time with cymbals, this would be the pack to get, considering the fact that it comes with a bonus 14" Crash. BUY THIS PACK NOW! The only thing that was somewhat intimidating was the fact that only after a day, there were already big marks from where I had played. Otherwise, fantastic cymbals.
