Before the Ride, HiHat and Crash cymbal models ever existed, the classic Splash was found on the earliest of drum sets. It remains one of the most popular cymbals ever produced and can be applied to any form of music for quick, short crash that bursts with a classic voice that is pure, bright, and expressive.
Zildjian’s classic sound is embodied by A Zildjian and immortalized in countless recordings by the greatest drummers of all time. Known for their versatility, these bright cymbals range from paper thin and delicate to extra heavy and cutting. Recent adjustments were made to the curvature and weights of many current models to capture the sweet spot of the classic A sound, producing crashes, rides, and hats that reflect today’s musical styles.
