Zildjian Pitch Black Cymbals

Zildjian Pitch Black

Zildjian Pitch Black

I just recorded a CD with these. I love them. The crash bells are very clear. The china has many different spots on it. The middle of the china is twangy, but clear. The outside has a good gong feel.

The ride is the same way...many different sounds. Clear bell, thick middle. Never sizzles or fuzzes out.

Hi hats seemed pretty typical for Zildjian. The crashes were fine. Crisp and can obviously take a beating or make gentle swishes.

The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the splash, but then again, most splashes are wimpy, IMO.
