How To Prevent Your Cymbals From Cracking


collapse expand iconDescription

The Zildjian S Family Performer cymbal pack provides drummers with a dynamic range of tones for any musical style. Brought to you by the legendary Zildjian brand, the included cymbals—16" crash, 18" crash, 20" ride and 14" hi-hats—deliver warm, complex sounds with musicality and projection. The bonus 18" thin crash adds shimmering accents and a splash of brightness. With its innovative hybrid hammering and lathing techniques, the S Family produces cymbals that cut through live mixes with articulate clarity while retaining musical warmth. The Zildjian S Family Performer cymbal pack comes with a durable cymbal bag to protect your investment.

Hybrid Hammering Provides a Spectrum of Tones

Zildjian's hybrid hammering process combines traditional hammering and lathing techniques to create cymbals with a wide range of sounds. The hammering concentrates density and stiffness in strategic areas for crisp articulation, while lathing opens up the cymbal in other areas for wash and spread. The result is a cymbal set with sounds for every musical moment—from tight syncopation to broad crescendos.

Thin Crash for Shimmer and Splash

The included 18" thin crash provides shimmering accents and a splash of brightness. Quick to speak and fast to decay, the thin crash cuts through mixes for rhythmic punctuation. With a focused yet complex tone, this cymbal is ideal for jazz, fusion and tightly syncopated genres.

Ride Cymbal Anchors the Set

The 20" ride cymbal anchors the set with a balanced, musical wash that projects well. Perfect for contemporary music, the ride provides a foundation for solos and color for accents. With a bell that cuts for rhythmic definition, this versatile cymbal works for any style.

Protect Your Investment With a Durable Cymbal Bag

The included cymbal bag protects the Zildjian S Family Performer cymbal pack during transport and storage. Padded handles make carrying comfortable, while the reinforced sides and bottom prevent damage. Multiple compartments keep the cymbals organized and accessories within easy reach.
