Balanced Cymbal Set at an Intermediate Price

Step up to real Zildjian bronze with the balanced and budget-friendly Zildjian S series. This full set of cymbals includes hi-hats, two medium thin crashes, and a balanced ride to furnish any core kit - a good option for drummers who are ready to upgrade their budget cymbals in a hurry. Zildjian S cymbals are made from B12 bronze for full body and a balanced tone at an intermediate price, featuring lathed tops and bottoms for openness and extensive machine hammering for even dynamics. Sweetwater percussionists recommend this set to drummers who play a wide range of styles from rock to pop and country.

Zildjian B12 Bronze Provides a Balanced Sound on a Budget

Zildjian S-series cymbals are made from B12 bronze - 88% copper and 12% tin - to provide a balanced range of lows, mids, and highs for brilliant shimmer and signature Zildjian smokiness. B12 bronze lands somewhere between Zildjian's budget B8 bronze and premium B20 bronze for good balance, projection, shimmer, and wash for the price. Zildjian S cymbals feature lathed tops and bottoms for an open sound with plenty of sustain, extensive machine hammering for an even tone that cuts through a mix, and a brilliant finish that looks great under stage lights.

Zildjian S Cymbals 4-piece Performer Set Features:
  • Made of Zildjian B12 bronze for a musical sound at an intermediate price
  • Includes 14" Mastersound hi-hats, 16" and 18" medium thin crashes, and a 20" medium ride
  • Rich and balanced sound supports a wide range of styles
  • Good blend and highs and lows - smoky, full, and shimmery
  • Excels for rock, pop, country, and funk
  • Machine hammering for a bright sound and even dynamics
  • Lathed top and bottom for openness and sustain
  • Brilliant finish for projection and top-end shimmer
Upgrade to the full tone and even dynamic response of Zildjian S-series cymbals!

I LOVE THESE CYMBALS

I LOVE THESE CYMBALS. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL DRUMMER AND I DO NOT GIG. I PURCHASED THESE CYMBALS TO REPLACE A SET OF MEINL HCS WHICH CAME INCLUDED WITH THE TAMA IMPERIALSTAR KIT HAT I ALSO PURCHASED FROM SWEETWATER. THESE CYMBALS SOUND AND LOOK GREAT AND ARE A HUGE UPGRADE FROM THE MEINLS. SINCE I DON'T PLAY IN PUBLIC I COULDN'T JUSTIFY PAYING FOR ZILDIAN A'S BUT WANTED SOMETHING ABOVE THE LOWEST GRADE ZILDJIANS. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH MY PURCHASE AND FIND MYSELF PLAYING MY DRUMS EVERYDAY NOW. THANK YOU SWEETWATER.

Great value

Here's what I've found with cymbals: you get what you pay for. With that in mind, these have a lot of value. They are FAR superior to the ZBT line. However, they don't sound as smooth as the A line. What are you going to do, right? There is a big price jump between the S and A lines. These sound a bit harsher than the As. But they have a consistent sound no matter where you hit them, they look excellent, and they totally sound good enough to gig with. I am happy with them.
