I got the Zildjian ZBT splash 5 years ago as an add-on to my kit. It is one of the best accessories I have added to my drumset. I love it. There are times when you just need that "splash" sound, and this is a great splash. It is very affordable and durable. It sounds great. I own the 10" and I use it all the time. Add this cymbal to your set, you won't regret it.

It has good sound for the price, but it is not so great quality and cracked within two months. I am not a hard hitter either. It looks nice and shiny though, and has a nice finish. I have had a little experience with some other splashes, (B8's, and some other higher quality splashes), and the B8's sound just as good and seem to have better quality. I would recommend a B8 before I would suggest this. Hope this helps.

      A nice, inexpensive splash!

        Comments about Zildjian ZBT Splash Cymbal:

        I got a ZBT 8" Splash just to use with my "beater" kit at my rehearsal space. I don't want to keep my "good" kits and cymbals at my rehearsal space, so I use entry level stuff just for practice. Considering that was my motive for getting this cymbal, it exceeded my expectations! First off, let's take this in context. These are not B20 alloy cymbals that are cast. These are B8 or B10 sheet bronze cymbals. Of course, they are not going to have the tonal complexity or darker overtones of cast or hand hammered B20 cymbals. They simply can't. However, this sounds better than I expected. It actually sounds like a splash! Most lower end cymbals (price wise) splashes sound more like "clang" than splash". This has a nice attack with a bright splash sound that decays very quickly. Sure, it doesn't have the complexity or subtleness of my more expensive splashes, but it's not designed to, and it sounds just fine. It's nice and thin as well. Let's face it, if you are playing moderately loud music (more than un-mic'ed acoustic stuff), can you really hear the subtle nuances in an 8" or 10" splash? This sounds like a splash, not a mini-hi-hat top like a lot of entry level splashes do. It cuts through the music and again, sounds like a splash is supposed to sound like. I wouldn't confuse it for my Sabian HHX Evolution alone in a quiet room, but during the din of live playing, they sound very close to each other. Because of it's brightness, it actually cuts through a little better. This will work very well if you want a basic, inexpensive splash. These newer ZBT's are very well made and sound much better than "entry level" cymbals.

          Comments about Zildjian ZBT Splash Cymbal:

          I got the 8" splash,a while back and It's not bad.B-8 bronze,so you are not going to get the "dynamic range",of an "A Zildjian",or a B-20 bronze,cymbal.With that said,this has a nice splash and bell-tone,which is a trademark of most zildjian cymbals'!I collect cymbals',from all cymbal companies' and they all have a certain quality,or lack there-of.Some people say go with "Wuhan",because they are B-20,bronze,but I can't get past that "Oriental gong" thing,that they have going on and I own several "splash" cymbals',by them.My only advice would be,if you can afford to go to a "ZHT",it is a lot brighter and nicer cymbal.As far as breakage and bending,if you hit any splash,too hard,or at the wrong angle,they will break.They were never meant to be a "heavy-metal",type of cymbal.Original use,was by small- jazz orchestras',for a quick splash and mute!

            Great cymbal if you can get a deal on it. Very "effecty." The beauty of a splash is that they are not supposed to sound great - why spend a ton of money on a cymbal like that. This does what a splash is supposed to for a very good price (again, if you can get a deal on it).

                I bought this cymbal for my starter set knowing that it was an entry level product. With that in mind it's still a piece of JUNK! The entry level wu-han splash is twice the product.

                Cheap but good

                By Jared Cain

                from Coastal North Carolina

                Comments about Zildjian ZBT Splash Cymbal:

                If you havent ever bought a splash, for the price, I definitely suggest getting this. It will give you a nice happy medium of what you would expect out of a small splash. Although For more experienced drummers may not agree this is very good sound quality it is great for armature to advanced musicians only because its not as bright as one may expect.
                Not the greatest on a professional Drumming level but great for garage band with local shows. Has a quick splash response. At first I didnt like the tone of the splash but after breaking it in a bit when I used to play Metal, It has a much better sound/tone. Not the brightest response but not dull either, right in the middle.
                I have literally beat the crap out of this thing and with some small dents it has held up amazingly!!! I feel the wear on it gives it more character as well.
                While some other series and brands of splash have some better tones (more brighter response) for the price you cant beat this cymbal as a first splash anyway. I bought this a few years ago and it still holds up to my hard hits and my band mates love the sound as well.

                Comments about Zildjian ZBT Splash Cymbal:

                I love the sound of my 8" Splash. It sounds great with the rest of the ZBT series cymbals I use. However, it breaks fairly quickly for me...maybe a 3 or 4 months if I play the set every day in addition to 2 or 3 shows. Perhaps I'm just a hard hitter.

                Either way, it is one of the best prices out there for splash cymbals so I recommend this cymbal if you're on a low budget and still want some good diversity in cymbal sounds!
