Great cymbals for the price. I owned a set of ZBT 13" because I couldn't afford the hats that I really wanted (Avedis New Beats), but to be honest they did great. They have a really bright sound that can cut through the mix and the volume is surprisingly loud compared to other beginner cymbals. Compared to beginner brass cymbals like Sabian SBR or Meinl HCS they have the best sound for sure. If you have enough money to buy them new then I would recommend maybe buying a set of used Zildjian ZHT Mastersound or Sabian XS20 instead. But if you are like me and want to pick up a set of inexpensive used cymbals then this set will do the trick.
