Rhythm (5/2010) test results:
These new EFX models are a clear indication of 21st Century drummers appetites for ever more complicated cymbals. Evolving away from established designs and freely mixing different sonic attributes some of them verging on contradictory EFXs are refreshingly different and unashamedly modern. The A Custom models join existing EFXs and make powerful alternatives to regular crashes, while the new K models are subtler variants that are even harder to pin down. All four of the EFXs positively fizz alongside conventional cymbals. My own selection of crashes chosen carefully and used countless times to great effect sounded tepid and flat in comparison.
Rhythm (3/2007) test results:
So, a mixture of desirable and just-about-ok to my ears. The cymbals look serious and the pricing is between budget and pro, which is exactly right. I happily took some crashes and hi-hats out on a gig, but I passed on the rides. The hi-hats felt genuinely pro, but once the volume was up I found the crashes didnt quite have the presence and projection of more expensive top models. Fair dos, their tone remained sweet. Zildjian says the ZHT is its most musical sheet bronze series yet and I have no trouble agreeing. Zildjians best, most musical stab at a sheet bronze cymbal range ever. The rides and mini hi-hats offer unpleasant aftertones.
