Stunning Value!

By Pho3nix

from Denver

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Total China Cymbal:

Many people don't like ZXT's, but notably the china and splash models are total exceptions. This china has a dirty, exotic sound that will mix in great with other china cymbals. The china does have a long decay, but you wont notice it when you are playing music. If you are like me and you are into metal, 'Riding' on this china produces an interesting short sound that will make your metal sound all the more freaky!!

Trashy and clean cut sound all in one package

By ericthedrummer1

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Total China Cymbal:

the Zxt total china 18 inch is simply hands down the best china cymbal that you can come across in the zildjain line of cymbals. This was my first china cymbal and i couldnt have chosen a better one. It delivers a medium high pitched sound that is trashy but cuts through everything very nicely. This cymbal has a very harmonic ring to it that starts out like the crack of a wip and fades out quickly (depending on how tight you have the cymbal). Just by looking at the cymbal the hammering is very precise and the finish is fairly good. Over all this is one of my all time favorite cymbals that I own and hope that you will pick some up because these cymbals are an all time favorite!!!

Great Cymbal

By Nick

from PA

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Total China Cymbal:

Great cymbal for the price. Been drummin for 6 years now and this is one of the original cymbals that I bought. I've had to replace every starter cymbal I've owned.... except this one. VERY GOOD VALUE. Not the best china ever, but worth 5 stars so.... REALLY CONSIDER IT. VERY EXOTIC AND VERY COOL SOUND. A little trashy, but not "tinny" or "cheap". Also, has not cracked yet! HOWEVER! It does seem to dent fairly easy... I have been playing it for about 3 years and I have a bunch of dents, though it has been awhile and I'm a hard hitter. I definitly reccomend it!


Weak cymbal


from Lake Forest, CA

Comments about Zildjian ZXT Total China Cymbal:

I've had 2 of these cymbals in the past 7 months and cracked them both. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, save your money and buy a Sabian AAXtreme.
