The new Dry Cymbal Set features cymbals from Zildjian’s popular K Custom Special Dry Collection, and is the perfect setup for any drummer who is looking for raw, earthy cymbals that deliver a dry, funky sound with a quick, fast attack and lots of dirt.
The Dry Pack Includes:
Having finally realized that my Paiste 2002 cymbals were a wee bit extreme for some of the smaller rooms my band has found ourselves in, as well as getting older and some of us dealing with tinnitus, I began a quest for a lower pitched cymbal with a quicker decay. I also was wanting lower pitched cymbals in an effort to not occupy the same higher frequencies/notes that the lead guitar, keyboard, and vocals were occupying in a performance. After listening to lots of cymbal demonstrations & reviews, I chose the Zildjian K Custom Special Dry set, plus an 18" K Custom Special Dry Trash Crash to round out the set. They are exactly what I and my bandmates were looking for, and found some for a price I could afford. The 14" hi-hats cut through the mix nicely. The 21" ride is subtle yet can be give you a low crash sound too. Both the 16" & 18" crashes sound slightly ****** by themselves, but that merely serves to allow them to blend and cut through the mix subtly as well before quickly decaying out. Lots of sound choices on all of the cymbals to play with. I am thrilled with my choice.
