Matthew Parsons says:

I loved the Constantinople Rides, the K Dark Crashes, A Hats, K Custom China’s, and ZHT effects out of everything in the video.

Rico Horton says:

the Constantinoples sound sweet.

artfulgoat says:

I still love the sound of the classic A’s

Jordy Gijzen says:

I think for a good china review you just neet to hit them a lot harder, never heard a guy drum that needs a china who doesn’t beat the crap out of it.
good review tho!

Muzik boy says:

zildjian A custom is the best

Christian Ronollo says:

I came here looking for 13″ Zildjian K/Z Hi-hats so someone please tell me what is such the big difference between the Zildjian K/Z’s, K/Z “special”, then there is the K/Z “dyno beats” ?? whatever tf that is, and then last we find the K/Z “quick beats” and normal 13″ Zildjian K/Z Hi-hats.

Sean Lewis says:

The A china was certainly the best of the chinas in my opinion. Love the K darks, also love the A customs. Such a shame I can’t afford any of them.

Good ! visit my music channel 🙂


I notice this player is not hitting the cymbals in the suggested manner (on the bow) in the crack free video.

Charles wood says:

The Zbt hats sound actually pretty nice 😀

Burnzo says:

Zildjian A crashes are the greatest thing on earth… But 18″ and 20″

Dominick Guerra says:

ausfuhrpramienjagar says:

My Grandsons name is Zildjian.. Named after said cymbals!  And yes, he is a drummer..

fess04 says:

K Custom Dark crashes are jusssssssst right….for me 🙂

Aldo Alvarez says:

I’m a mostly metal drummer and I use a 19′ k custom hybrid crash and 22′ k custom ride.

shawn hapney says:

No limitations with Zildjian. They have every sound under the sun with just the right amount of ring and record magically.
