Zildjian

Description

The Zildjian I Series Pro 5 cymbal set includes everything the new drummer needs to get started with name-brand cymbals. This complete pack from Guitar Center includes full-size hi-hats, two crashes and a versatile crash/ride. With modern sizes and thinner weights for a washy, emotive sound, I Series cymbals are designed for beginners and students looking to hone in on their own individual sound.

Zildjian I Series Pro 5 Cymbal Set Main Features

  • Cymbal set includes 14” hi-hats, 14” and 16” crashes and 20” crash/ride
  • Lighter, thinner, more expressive cymbals in a budget line
  • Crafted from fully lathed, machine-hammered sheet bronze
  • Brilliant finish with cursive Zildjian “i” logo

A Variety of Sounds for the Evolving Drummer

The I Series Pro 5 cymbal set is packed with enough sounds to complete an entire drum set. The pair of 14 and 16” crashes offer bright, punchy accents with quick decay. The 20” crash/ride is washy and emotive as a crash, but keeps enough stick definition to work as a versatile ride. And thanks to the full 14” size, the hi-hats have plenty of surface area to practice new sticking patterns.

Thinner Design for an Evocative, Inspiring Sound

Taken from Ilham, the Turkish word for inspiration, the Zildjian I Series is designed to inspire new players and students with more expressive sounds. Zildjian accomplishes this change by using thinner weights than in previous entry-level series. That means these cymbals are washier and more emotive, giving players new dimensions to explore while searching for their personal style.

Zildjian Craftsmanship at an Affordable Price

While the price makes the I Series accessible to first-time drummers, these cymbals are still made in the USA at the same factory as legendary K and A Zildjian lines, using many of the same techniques passed down for hundreds of years. The process starts with B8 sheet bronze, which is precision-hammered by machine and lathed fully from bell to edge. The I Series also includes models with experimental touches from pro-level lines, like sound holes and extra hammering.

Classic Looks, Inspiring Sound

When it comes off the line, each cymbal in the I Series is polished to a bright finish—brilliant enough to make an impression without being too reflective. It’s then stamped with the “i” logo, which is modeled on the cursive “i” in the Zildjian logo known all over the world. These touches, along with the official stamp along the edge, confirm that these affordable cymbals are authentic Zildjian, through and through.
