Pitch Black Review

Zildjian Pitch Black

Zildjian Pitch Black

I bought my 11 year old a set of these as being a step better than the ZBT's. Overall my thought is they are okay. The price was right, I paid 200 for a new set.

Generally they sell for 2x that. So, considering what I paid it was not a bad deal. I found a used Sabian 20" AA metal X ride that is quite good.

The pitch black ride has nothing on this. I am looking at Dream and Amici cymbals as replacement/add on's. Any lathed and hammered B20 even a bad one sounds better than sheet B8 or B12.
