Not Durable

I have gotten this cymbal replaced once and it has already cracked again within four months. Good for beginners or younger drummers, just not good if you hit decently hard.

Good for what its worth

By GregTamaDrummer

from Lyons, IL

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

When I got this cymbal, I actually broke it in about 3 months. Im a hard hitter and I dropped it once on concrete and made a scratch. If you take good care of this cymbal it'll last. Now to the sound... this cymbal sounds AWESOME!! I got my old broken cymbal replaced just yesterday and i'm loving hearing it again. This cymbal is a great addition to your set, even if you have fancy cymbals like the A, Z, or K's

This Zildjian crash makes me proud to be a drummer. It has a nice full punch when hit and has an awesome sustain. The cymbal chokes are awe-inspiring with this thing. I love my ZBT!

Awesome

By Jack

from CA

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

I got this cymbal a few weeks ago and immediately it was my favorite cymbal in my kit. It easily powers through a loud guitar, and adds a nice touch to double bass beats.

Great Crash for beginner/intermediate!

By kevdrummer28

from Duncanville, Texas

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

This is a GREAT crash cymbal for beginners/intermediates. It has a fairly long ring, but I put a Moongel on it that fixed that up pretty good. Buy these if you want a good cymbal for an EXCELLENT price.

Waste of money

By Pintobeanz412

from Wichita Falls, TX

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!! I bought this cymbal because it was cheap and I wanted to expand my kit, but after a month it was already denting! At four months it was dented everywhere, and the at six months it had a five inch crack! Don't waste your money no matter how cheap it is.

I've seen better.

By kevin

from detroit

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

lol, I guess im yet another person whose cymbal cracked in about 4 months (come to think of it..... i wasnt really going easy on it). overall a good cymbal for beginners, good bang for buck, but dont expect it to last long if your a hard hitter.

okay cymbal

By Nasr Gopeechan

from Pasadena, TX

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

I have 2 of these, a 16" and an 18". I had just began drumming 3 years ago and i've had them ever since. But, there is an enormous crack in my 18" and a growing one in my 16". They have dented pretty bad also. But, i shouldn't leave out that they started doing so on the 3rd year i've had them. It could be my style of playing, or the drumsticks I use. I think these are good starting cymbals, along with the Ride and and HiHats.

GREAT

By Dalton

from Arlington, Texas

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

This crash is perfect for that rock, glass breaking sound. But If you are a jazz only player, it is not really going to fit your style of play in my opinion. But it is still a great cymal, mine sounds good wherever you even hit it. I highly recommend

Great Choice

By Alex

from New York

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Crash:

I absolutely love my ZBT's and they have been great to me for years. The only problem is that I have also had problems with them; both my 16" and 18" cracked, which Zildjian replaced for free, but the replacements have cracked as well. I think they are great choices anyway, as long as you have them positioned the right way.
