Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Hybrids work!!"
Sound: these cymbals have a great sound, with body and control, a smooth shimmer with a light tap, and an explosive attack with a nice short to medium roll off. I have the 16" & 17" compared them to Zildjian A customs & Sabian AA & AAX & HHX, the others were brighter with a different textured sound(hard to explain) the Sabians sounded brittle to me and prone to breakage according to some drummers I've talked to. However the Sabians were louder with less stick effort. I think they are better suited to Metal!! I play classic rock & blues the K Hybrids seem smooth & perfect for that crossover. I also pcked up a K Custom Dark crash(18") which complements the others beautifully along with a K Custom Hybrid ride(20"). The K series is pricey but you get what you pay for( a smooth classic sound). Feature: Hand-hammered, lathed & brilliant surfaces offer different tone & textures in your sound with nice bells for accents. Ease of Use: put it on a stand & hit it!! Quality: I've never had a Zildjian let me down!!! I've had a Paiste fail me once(that's enough) and I've seen Sabian fail for others but never owned any. Value: K series is pricey but I keep buying them Manufacturer Support: wouldn't know never needed them. that says it all The Wow Factor: hand hammered two tone finish looks pretty cool with stage lighting, but it's the sound your after. Looks are just a bonus. Overall: should last a lifetime I'm not a heavy hitter!!
Style of Music: classic rock and the like

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
