Zildjian adds four new models to its popular ZHT Series of cymbals

{mosimage} Like all ZHT cymbals, these new models start with tonally responsive 88/12 Bronze Alloy, which is comprised of 88 per cent Bronze and 12 percent Tin. This alloy combined with full lathing and professional style hammering produce a cymbal that is clear and consistent, producing a versatile mid-range tonal response.

The largest of the new models is the 20-inch Crash Ride that is in keeping with today's musical trend towards large drums and cymbals. It is the largest sheet metal Crash cymbal that Zildjian has ever offered. The preferred use of this cymbal is for rock settings where maximum Crash cymbal sustain is desired. This cymbal fills a lot of musical space with a full-bodied cushion of mid-range sound. It also may be used as a Light Ride for jazz settings.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the "Fast" weight cymbals, Zildjian has added 15-inch and 17-inch Fast Crash cymbals. Fast weight cymbals sonically open up very quickly which is desirable for a Crash cymbal. hese are perfect for providing clean accents and are natural additions for a player that is looking to add-on to their existing set-up.

For players looking for articulate and lively HiHats Zildjian now offers the 13-inch ZHT Mastersound HiHats. The smaller diameter size controls the overall tonal output while the Mastersound feature (rippled edge) on bottom cymbal boosts the foot chick and overall tonal presence.

The ZHT Cymbal Line offers a complete range of sounds including a number of specialty cymbals to add color to the baseline models and Cymbal Pre-packs. ZHT's musical versatility, extensive product line, professional looks and exceptional value make them the only serious choice for players considering Sheet Bronze cymbals.
