Zildjian A Series City Pack Cymbals Review

Get the A Series City Pack here: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ACITYP248

Whether you’re looking for control or portability, you’ll find it here in the A Zildjian City Pack. The 12″ New Beat Hi-hats bring the time-honored light-top/heavy-bottom “chick” to a new low-profile format, with a fast decay and focused pitch that stays out of the way of other instruments. Up top, the Zildjian 14″ Fast Crash delivers a quick, cutting blow and fast choke that’s great for many styles of modern music. Finally, the capable 18″ Uptown Ride, with its unlathed surfaces and extensive hammering, delivers tight, defined sticking and a dark, throaty wash with tremendous musical potential.

This pack is excellent! That little ride is absolutely fantastic for what it is. I have a Sonor safari kit and I can’t help but think how nice it will be to have a dedicated cymbal set for the kit. I’ve never been a fan of cymbal packs, but this is an excellent idea, claps to Zildjian coming from a Meinl fan.

You tear it up, Nick. I find myself looking at Sweetwater’s videos to get some really cool drumming ideas! Keep up the excellent reviews Nick!!

Juupke says:

Nice Video, please review the A series 391 pack! I’m looking at buying those. Greetz

Meth Jew says:

Thanks! It’d be great if you guys could review the Paiste PST 7s next

Rhythmista says:

Very nice idea, however, the cymbal pack should’ve had a 16″ than a 14′..

dugjay says:

Again, a most excellent demo Nick..thank you!

Nicko The Thicko says:

Are they trying to recreate the remix series?

Qui Tv says:

That 18inch ride takes the crown in this pack

André Quimpo says:

Nice. To add, Zildjian says the ride was made from the discontinued Remix line. 🙂
