My wife ordered the 9.5 inch Zil-Bel to ad to my drum kit.Shipping was quick but cymbal has a manufacturer defect on the outer edge of it. Can't wait to get it replaced to start playing on it with the rest of my Zildjian ZBT Cymbals.I would like to give a more informative review.This review is not meant as a bash review. I'm just a little bummed out.I'll get over it.

By dave

from OH

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

ive had the zil bel for about 6 months now and its pretty good. its fun to toy around with. if you have a ride you really wouldnt need it but its fun to have anyway. im into hardcore and the zil bel does not let down. even tho i have a ride with a nice sounding bell, it creates a nice ding that cuts thru anything. alot of bands have one too. chiodos, as blood runs black, the devil wears prada, and alot more other hardcore bands

lil demon

By gothera

from pa

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

this thing rocks, its a definte must have for metal doublebass work, the trick to this lil monster is not to mount it the way the picture shows. this bell is VERY thick, mount it upside down kinda like a china so its a bowl not a bell, just try not to shatter to many sticks on it

simply awesome

By J Batista

from Davie, Florida

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

I'm a hard-hittin' cymbal destroyer metal and rock drummer. I've had my 9 1/2 Zil-Bel for about 7 years and it's the best effect cymbal I've ever came across with. Goes great with a 7' A custom splash. Cuts through even everything over the hardest riffs. Quality is amazing- no othr cymbal lasted me 7 years and I will still have it if it wasn't for a froggin thief that stole my cymbal bag after a gig about a year ago. Cant wait to get my new one, I'll probably own it forever Lve it Love it Love it

Im very Impressed

By Jake P

from Detroit.MI

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

This is another great sounding Zildjian product. This little beauty is amazing if your into metal/hardcore. I got mine set up on its own little Gibralter Boom arm, which is connected to one of my boom stands, which I prefer you to do as well. Now I have to admit that I do have some useless stuff on my drums set that I rarely use, but this is not one of them. Its loud, sharp, and gets your attention. I've have this pup for about 6 months now and Its still as fresh as the day I got it. Although I haven't played a show with It just yet, I've seen some local bands and some gnarly big bands shred the 6 inch (which I have) and the 9 inch. Now, I f you like Dead To fall or Animosity or any of those Hardcore/Metal bands they use these and I have to say, It works for them. So I strongly advise you to purchase this. Now go shred It up you metal heads!

amazing addition

By Hunter S.

from Cedar Park, Texas

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

I've had a 6" Zil-Bel for about a couple of years now, and I see that people say on here that if you already have a ride and stuff that this thing is kind of pointless, but I strongly disagree. It's allll about how you use it. I mean I've got 2 ride cymbals AND a Zil-Bel. the Zil-Bel may be a good stand-in if your ride bell sucks, but it sounds so much different than a regular ride bell, it gives you so much more versatility. throw it in the middle of a fill or into some fast quads or even hit it at the same time you hit a crash to give some awesome effect. The key is creativity. Zil-Bels are awesome. buy one, and use it.

The Pros and Cons of the Zil-Bel

By Jake

from South Florida

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

Pros: Great bell, best one out there. Very sturdy and a lot heavier than I thought. It appears that it's going to last quite a while. Cons: Very expensive for such a little bell. Maybe a little overpriced. Other Thoughts: I WOULD say it's worth the money if it lasts me a good 3 years. But I'm not sure if it'll last that long. Since it's heavier than I thought, I'd assume it would last really long, but then again, I do tend to go a little crazy when playing. ;)

The Zil-Bel

By Ryan

from Yucaipa,CA

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

The Zildjan Zil-Bel is a great cymbal overall. It has a ear percing effect that cuts through the other sounds. You can use the bel stacked on top of another symbal, and use with either the butt or tip of your stick (they both sound about the same). It is a great buy overall and can be used with many types of music.

Sound makes for cool accents!

By TikDrummer

from CT

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

This sounds great when you use it for accents, but you can also ride on it like a ride bell with a clearer sound. It has long sustain, but if you choke it, it goes silent instantly. I have it mounted upside-down over a crash, but it'd be best mounted near splashes so you could do more interesting, multipart accents.

Zil Bel

By The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

from El Paso Texas

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

This effect cymbal really has a distinct ring to it when hit during a performed song piercing with enough volume to not be overpowered by the guitars and bass. . it is great for fast fill-ins and chillin' break downs. . its a really tuff durable cymbal that wont let you down. Mine used to sit on my ride but i recently bought a small attatching boom cymbal stand and it seems to sound a lot better, i recommend if you buy this zil bel to do the same.

AWESOME!!!!!

By MetalHeadx666

from huntley, IL

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

This cymbal has an awesome ping and is great for metal.. Just got mine today in the mail and its awesome.. If your a metal drummer, then I highly recommend you get this cymbal. A lot of people say just use your ride's bell, so i compared the two, and i gotta say, the zil bel is a lot better. You wont regret buying this awesome cymbal...

I <3 my Zil bel

By Richard

from New Jersey

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

One of the coolest cymbals ive ever bought. It cuts through very nicely, and adds an interesting sound to your set. I would recommend this to anyone, but put it on its own stand, it makes it sound a lot better than stacking it. A little pricy, but its made very well so i expect it last a while. Definitely a good purchase.

Great effect from Zildjian

By TimmyR41

from Mifflinburg, PA

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

The Zil-Bel is a great effect from Zildjian. It produces a high pitched bell sound that is very similar to the bell or a ride cymbal. If you hit it with the tip of your stick it will produce a short sound which can be stuck in just about anywhere. If you find a place to put a longer sustained bell sound just hit the zil-bel with the barrel of your stick and it will ring forever. The zil-bel adds a few very creative sounds to your kit that you can experiment with and use in your playing.

Zil-Bel

By Drummerboy15

from Iowa

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

The zilbel has a weird sound. I bought one at the store right after they raised the price fifteen dollars. I'm not sure it's worth the money. If you hit the edge of it, it rings for about a minute. If you hit it on the top, it only lasts for about one second. If your ride cymbal has a bell, I don't really see why it's worth eighty more dollars to get this, BUT..... everyone is different.

The best effect cymbal out there

By Dan

from saltsburg

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

This is by far the most amazing cymbal out there. Ive had the six inch one for three years now and there is not even one mark on it. I just ordered the bigger one last week and it is amazing. I set up the bigger one on its own add-on stand and the small one on top of my ride and they mix perfectly. If you are a drummer that loves fills this is the cymbal for you.

Wonderful addition to my set.

By Clay

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

I got this bell for my birthday and I must say, as soon as I picked it up I could feel how heavy duty it was. My dad warned me not to drop it cause he told about how he hurt his foot even WITH shoes on. That just goes to show how heavy it is. I've only been using it for two days and I've already used it a fair amount. This is, quite possibly, one of the greatest investments put towards my drumset.

great effect

By ThisDyingSoul

from Iowa

Comments about Zildjian Zil-Bel Cymbal:

The Zil-Bel is very unique. I own the 6 inch model and am very satisfied. Currently, I have mine upside-down and stacked over a 10 inch splash. The sound is loud and is a great addition to my ride bell. I do not, however, think that this is a good substitute for a ride bell. It is not something I use a lot, but it is defiantly nice to have. I really enjoy playing patterns where I alternate between my ride bell and Zil-Bel. Obviously it is very thick and heavy for its size. It is great effect cymbal that will last forever. A great buy!
