I had the opportunity to play on many cymbals: Paiste and Zildjian low and mid-range, Sabian mid and high range (HH, AAX, etc ...)
What in particular did you like the most and the least?
The cymbals have a real sound color. They are sleek and quality for the price! Suddenly, they dethrone the products that offer widely known brands! If I dissect the set, here's my opinion:
Hi-hats 14": dark and powerful that respond very well both open and closed (8 of 10)
Crash 16": a clear and well-defined that stands out in the mix .. ideal for break punctuation (7 of 10)
Crash 18": sounds rather deep with lots of presence. To be used to keep the rhythm! (7 of 10)
Ride 20": a ping with little presence with a non-existent bell... yet it sounds, it is deep and sustain a large ... Jazz, lounge and soft rock to delight him go ... for rock and metal... it is not ideal! Let's be honest, it's a little weak point of the set (5.5 out of 10)
How do you rate the quality / price?
After careful reflection, it is in this price range, the best choice! However, everything will depend on the lifetime of the cymbals and the definition of its time ... After a month, the glossy finish is definitely not helping, it clearly dinstingue dents to compare ..., j 'charley B8pro have a rock for 10 years that looks like new! To see it!
Playing in several groups with different rehearsal, I was tired of lugging the gear to each rehearsal.
So, not to disassemble my kit cymbals Sabian HH (low bell 21 crash 16 & 14, hihat14, spash 8 & 10 ..), I was looking for a set of cymbals cheap because I just squeeze my piggy bank for a set zildjian aa custom.
I say, I try and if it does not, I resell.
Well ..... Very pleasantly surprised.
Saban HH the rest for me and it is far incomparable account but for the price: € 359 full kit!
The + + + Cymbal sounds really., The rest is the job.
I have put a Moongel on the ride that reminds me a little XS20 (but not as bad as the XS20, I do depus pls affects more than one year)
I do not regret my purchase.
Of course, this does not compare to the zildjian Aa or the Sabian HH (other kits that I have), but when I see the m ..... low-end on which I sometimes play. There's Zildjian and Paiste that cost more than these Zultan and sounding less (well, who does not even sound at all).
So I use them in rehearsal. I would not take them to see what benefits I have available but compared to the ZBT, pst, .. To repeat or beginner, I think it's worth to try and not focus on the price at all Zildjian, Sabian or Paiste low end.
I would do this choice without hesitation. Very pleasantly surprised.
