Zildjian proudly presents the A Series 391 Cymbal Pack With Free 18" Crash. This expansive cymbal pack provides a full range of tones for versatile drumming in any genre. It includes 14" A New Beat hi-hats, renowned for their crisp articulation and controllable pitch; a 16" A Medium Thin crash to provide bright accents; and a 21" A Sweet Ride that sings with balanced sustain and definition. As an added bonus, Zildjian includes a free 18" A Medium Thin crash for broader sonic range.

Legendary A Zildjian Alloy for Warmth and Clarity

Each cymbal in the A Series 391 pack is cast from Zildjian's proprietary A Zildjian bronze alloy, which has been the foundation of their instruments for nearly 400 years. This alloy produces cymbals with a warm, rounded tone, clear pitch and long sustain. The result is a set of cymbals that can achieve a range of sounds, from soft and breathy to loud and cutting.

14" A New Beat Hi-Hats: Crisp Articulation and Control

The included pair of 14" A New Beat hi-hats provide crisp articulation and a controllable pitch ideal for many playing styles. Their medium-thin weight allows for quick response while still producing rich overtones. The New Beats cut through dense mixes with ease yet remain versatile enough for softer genres.

Diverse Crashes Provide Accent and Expression

With a 16" A Medium Thin crash and a bonus 18" A Medium Thin crash, drummers have an array of tones for accents and expression. The 16" crash produces a bright, splashy sound with a quick decay suitable for tight rhythmic passages. The 18" crash opens up the sonic palette with a broader, fuller crash that lingers slightly longer. Together, these crashes allow for maximum dynamic contrast.

21" A Sweet Ride: The Perfect All-Purpose Ride

Serving as the centerpiece of the set, the 21" A Sweet Ride provides balanced, musical sustain with clear stick definition. Its medium weight and size make it ideal as an all-purpose ride for most styles of music. With its classic A Zildjian sound, the Sweet Ride cuts through live mixes when needed but can also provide subtle undertones for softer playing.
