News Zildjian Pitch Black Ride 22"

Ride Cymbal from Zildjian belonging to the Pitch Black series

Zildjian announces its first-ever range of color-coated cymbals, the "Pitch Black" series which was designed specifically for Rock and Metal applications.


The series features eight models including a 22-inch Ride, 20-inch Crash Ride, 18 and 16-inch Crashes, 13-inch Splash, 15-inch Mastersound HiHats, 14-inch HiHats and an 18-inch China.

Utilizing a proprietary coating process, all Pitch Black cymbals are made from the brand’s high performance Bronze 12 Alloy which features enhanced tin content for a richer sound. The coating process allows the cymbals to be durable and visually striking while still opening up as a cymbal should. Heavier weights and large sizes combined with new profiles, cups, lathing and hammering techniques help to deliver the brightness and presence required for Rock and Metal applications.

According to Zildjian, the 22-inch Ride features an oversized bell for extra volume but is crafted to have enough wash to provide body when striking the edge. The 20-inch Crash Ride was primarily designed as an explosive Crash but still has enough balance to be used as a primary or secondary Ride. For Crashes, the 18-inch model is clear and substantial with excellent sustain and the 16-inch model along with the 13-inch Splash are perfect for quick accents.

The 14-inch HiHats offer the traditional size while the 15-inch Mastersound HiHats offer extra volume with the hammered outer edge on the bottom cymbal providing a massive “chick” sound. The undersides of both HiHat models have been left uncoated to maximize their “chick” and projection. Rounding out the series, the 18-inch China features a wide flange and gives a powerful voice for trashy, musical punctuations.

No release date or price was announced as of yet.
Sound samples are available on Zildjian’s website.
