An exhaustive two-year research and design project by the Zildjian Sound Lab results in a new modern cymbal voice from
the legendary Zildjian Company. The new S Series from Zildjian is an expressive cymbal with a balanced frequency response,
making it suitable for a variety of musical styles. It features a B12 alloy (88% copper, 12% tin) coupled with
cutting edge modern manufacturing techniques that produce a cymbal capable of a wide range of musical expression.
B12 Alloy: 88% Copper, 12% Tin – produces the perfect balance of low, middle, and high frequencies.
Fully Lathed: Top and bottom lathing – crafted to perfection in weight, feel, and sound.
Extensive Hammering: Gives these cymbals a dialed-in sonic response throughout all dynamic ranges.
Brilliant Finish: Invented by Zildjian, the striking brilliant finish helps open up the sound, providing a bright and shimmery tone.
S Family china splashes feature a square shape china bell and steep bow shape which produces an authentic “Oriental” cymbal sound. Also works great as part of a mini stacker cymbal.
