Zildjian ZBT Pro Cymbal Pack Reviews
I bought my ZBT Pro Pack from Bang Music in Stafford Va. for $185 and this pack had the extra 18 in crash. Some of these packs come with a china but I was glad to see the 18 inch crash. Also included a cymbal bag. I recently bought a new Gretsch kit for my weekend dates and moved my 1981 Slingerlands to my practice room. My Zildjian A’s stay with my new kit. I sold my old practice kit with my old practice cymbals so I need a cymbal setup to put with my Slingerlands. My old practice kit had Zildjian Simitar 20 ride & 16 crash along with inexpensive Paiste Hi-Hats.
Not disappointed at all with what I’m using these for and if you’re a new drummer and looking for a good quality started kit give these a try. I do understand that Sabian also make a great starter kit in their 8B’s. Check them both out and either way I think you would have a great first or practice cymbal set.Gretsch Drummer rated this unit on 2005-01-02.
Getting back into drums from a 10 year break was not easy. Things have canged. I recently bought a 2003 model, Pearl Export series 6 piece set. I needed cymbals to go with it and wanted zildjian. I use to own a 16" rock crash, 14" rock hats and a 20" rock ride. Great cymbals. The salesman told me the ZBT pro's were the best for the value. 189.00 and you got 14" hats, 16" crash, 20" ride, and a free china boy!! and a free cymbal bag. I was sceptical and asked if they were better than earlier zildjian cheapies (Simitar Series to be exact) he said no. So I bought 'em.
You get what you pay for. Just don't waste your time. I went back the next day and returned them. I then bought 14" Quick beat hats, 16" projection crash and 21" medium ride. I spent about 500 bucks. Well worth it. Try the cymbals out BEFORE you buy. If your budget does not allow, get the sabian b8 cymbal pack. They sound great for the price.Birth of the Beat! rated this unit on 2003-08-16.
