Sound grooves and round hammer strikes in a simple circular pattern on the top surface of the cymbals in the Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set magnify the basic sound of the distinctive ZBT alloy. Includes 14" crash, 18" crash ride, and a pair of 13" hi-hats. ZBT Series hi-hats produce a sharp and focused sound with an excellent, bright chick sound. The ZBT crash is a splendidly fast crash with a bright high-pitched tone. The ZBT crash ride produces a cutting ride sound with good crash qualities.

The bright, intense, high-pitched sound of the ZBT series cymbals cuts through the mix of other instruments. The sheet origin and lathing techniques create high-volume projection that speaks quickly and brightly when struck and 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. Superb all-purpose ride cymbal. Excellent, clean stick articulation with controlled overtones.

Great Cymbals

By IDrumForFun333

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

When I first bought these cymbals, I thought that I was settling for a pair of low-end trash cans. But after five months of practice they sound awesome and I can not imagine replacing them. They sound very good and anyone that wants to buy a pair of cymbals but can't afford Zildjian Cast Cymbals, sould definitely know that these cymbals are very good, and that they will not regret buying them!

Great Beginner to Intermediate Cymbals

By Ryne Bell

from Three RIvers, MI

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

I bought these ZBT Cymbals, with my Tama Rockstar Custom drum set, about 2 years ago. While I have bought many more Drums and Cymbals, these still form the base of my setup. I play at least 2-3 hours a day, and have yet to break one from this original set. In my opinion, they sound better than the Sabian B8s, and even their new XS20s, once they have been broken in. Depending upon your taste they are comparable to other cymbals twice their price. The actual sound they have to them is a fast attack with a medium fast smooth decay, and high overtones, making them exceptionally warm sounding. As you can now see, these are in-fact quite exceptional Beginner to Intermediate Drum set cymbals for their relatively low price.

Drummers review

By Blackened Hearts Drummer

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

At first i wasn't a huge fan of these cymbals but after a while you grow a bond to them. Now these cymbals are incredible there nice and strong they don't bend easily, the sound for the 13'' high hats are perfect for my standards, the 14'' crash is great sure the sound stays there for a while but you start to enjoy it, the 18'' crash/ride is okay you just have to know how to use it as a ride and a crash, when i use it as a ride i hit the bell which is the center of the cymbal, sure it will take some time getting used to but you'll grow to it, to use it as a crash its best to just hit anywhere basically. also the price is great for those who cant afford the more expensive cymbals. There great for any drummer.

Save Your Money

By Dakota D

from Leavittsburg, Ohio

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

I got a ZBT pack in September 2010, and by November/December 2010 each cymbal had somewhat of a dent. Nothing major but still. And the finish came off also. They are good cymbals if drumming is a hobby but if your serious about it, and you wanna record or play shows, i suggest you save your money and try to get something a step up

Good Beginner Set

By Zak Beatty

from Shelton, CT

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

I got this pack when i first started playing about a year ago, and it's been through alot. I started playing shows for two bands about two months ago, and I play really hard. The crash just cracked on me last week, so I think it's time for A customs. It didn't last long, but for the price, I think I got my money's worth


Good, but not for heavy hitters

By Will Rivas

from Arizona

Comments about Zildjian ZBT 4-Piece Starter Set:

I got this cymbal pack and the crash was my favorite. the ride was decent kinda trashy, the hi-hats were good, the only thing i didn't like about the hi-hats was that they sounded trashy to. overall it was all made well and sounded decent. (my crash did crack after playing for about a month, BUT i'm a really heavy hitter!)
