aponcapone says:

I abused the HCS in many big concerts. The biggest was at Appelpop 2015. On my channel there’s a drumcam video in which I play the HCS live and hard. They were holding up great.

Janina Pinguin says:

T Drums for president

Ryzantium says:

Comparing Cast cymbals to pressed sheet ones in my opinion is the same as comparing a bicycle to a super bike.

Fearon says:

I really like all the demos Thomann has done about drum parts. I hope more will come.

Bubbadoobop says:

The Zultan and Milleniums blew the other cymbals right out of the water. The Milleniums were _really good_ for their price too.

DrummerGrrrl says:

Those Zildjian ZBT’s sound like crap! I liked the Sabian B8X Ride and Hi-Hats. The Crash was my least favorite.

twentyonechemicalsatthediscofallout says:

Can you tell me the american prices for each cymbal

nazzare79 says:

The Millenium ride is more a crash/ride than a real ride. Anyway the best cheap crash: Dimavery DBEC (regular).

Paradiddle says:

That black t shirt guy sounds shit.. he doesn’t know how to do a cymbal review! He need lot of practise to get the groove .. white t shirt guy is far better! Iam skipping all black T-shirt Guy portions!

Cameron Åhslund-Glass says:

Zultan set hands down.

DrummerGrrrl says:

The Meinls are a severe disappointment. No sustain at all!

Leyen Sento says:

You should write a script in advance. Great demo, thanks!

Joao G. Pinheiro says:

zultan are the best!!!!!!!

Pierre Petry says:

Great sound at the price!

eloann says:

The Zultan are definitely a class above the others. I would like to hear comparisons of the various Zultan series.

MarioGamings says:

The ZBT Crash sounds a bit like a splash…
