I got the 14" Zildjian ZHT fast crash and at first thought the sound was ok. After hitting it a few times i realized it wasn't worth the money. It has kind of a tinny sound to it. It lacks the intensity of a crash but used with the right kind of music could sound alright.

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    So, as I'm reading most of these other comments, I have to ask myself..... Why are these guys cracking these cymbals so quickly? It's because the cymbal is being struck way too hard. Ease up on your velocity there guys. Don't play like you're trying to break the drums/cymbals. Learn to get a better touch/feel for your playing. I've had my Fast Crash 16" for quite some time now, over 5 years, and it still sounds great. Zero cracks, zero key-holing, nothing. My band plays almost every genre of music, and I have found that depending on the technique used to strike the cymbal versus the angle versus over all velocity, I can make this cymbal work in so many ways.
    I hate to complain about some of my fellow drummers, but come on guys. Consider you may be hitting your cymbals/drums just way too hard. Perhaps the rest of your band needs to turn down....

    Great sound, not so good durabuility

    By kyle saulnier

    from Portsmouth, Rhode Island

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Ive had this crash for about 3 years and overall the sound of this symbol has been beyond great! however, after the 5th month of playing with it, i noticed a crack about 4 inches from the end of the bell and about 2 inches from the rim of edge symbol. i was extremely disapointed that it only lasted me 5 months. the crack eventually has gotten bigger but hasnt really afected the sound drastically. If your looking for a durable symbol that wont crack in a year or two of playing, this probably isnt the symbol for you. Great sound for the price though!

    GREAT SOUND!!!!! but did crack WAY to quick!

    By John Newsham

    from Fitchburg, MA

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    This cymbal is good if you make a good amount of money to replace it in no time. I had a 14" and it cracked too soon and I was disappointed to the MAX.

    Best Crash Cymbals for the Money

    By Jacob K

    from Menomonee falls Wisconsin

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Some have said that these cymbals are not for hard hitting drummers, I disagree. I play in two metal bands and have a 15 in and a 17 in along with other cymbals and have these on my practice and stage set. They're fairly bright sounding, but i do agree that they aren't necessarily fast crashes. Do take this into consideration: the 15 inch version is not nearly as curved as the larger cymbals, making it sound deeper than my 17 inch, with an almost trashy tone, but still clean and bright. It's an interesting sound that i would definitely recommend playing before buying for sure because it's not for everyone. These do cover every genre on music you could play besides suicide silence, or screamo type music where a brighter sounding cymbal would kill the beat or fill. But for the money, you can't find much better

    Great Cymbal

    By Brandan

    from Costa Mesa, CA.

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Great cymbal; I got this cymbal yesterday and it's sounds great! Great quality, nice sound, just everything about the cymbal is great! Nice price too. I think every drummer out there should get this cymbal if they want a loud, reliable cymbal.

    Great crash!

    By Jeff Mork

    from Suisun City, CA

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    I bought the 14" and love it. It's got a fast decay just as the name states. Doesn't have a cheap and tinny sound like some of the economy lines can. It works great with my other crashes (16" & 18" Sabian AAX).I'm very impressed!

    An okay Cymbal

    By Joe

    from MI

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    This cymbal is decent, especially for the price. I bought a 16" and like with all warranties, not issues till it was up. I have had it for 3 years now, and it has a slight crack on the brim. Also, the sound isnt always beautiful. I found it works best when using it as a lead in crash to another cymbal, using it to meld sounds together. All in all i am still happy i purchased this cymbal and i will be sticking with the ZHT's for awhile.

    could be worse

    By GOS

    from PA

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    The ZHT has a good song, it rings forever and is verrry bright. if thats what your looking for then its great. it cuts through music well and i would never use it to do a rythm part with it. more than one hit is annoying.

    Heavy Drummers Beware

    By Nelson

    from Plymouth, Minnesota

    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Great cymbal...if you play light. I have cracked now 4 total ZHT fast crash cymbals. They are a great sounding cymbal, but they are not quite up to the test of durability. If your looking for something a little bit more durable think about spending a little extra money to go with a nicer quality Zildjian or Sabian.
