A Modern Drummers Eldorado
21.10.2016
Qualities -
Thin, good quality alloy, sounds great as a splash.

But to use it as just a splash would be such a shame. This is a great entry point to anyone who is interested in new sounds on the kit. I often use it on top of my 20" Caz ride, just stack it on top, it sounds awesome. Experiment and put it on top/underneath all your cymbals.

But the coup de grace is when you put it on your snare. Oh my. It sounds exactly like an electronic snare/clap sound when I lay it on my snare (13" Yamaha musashi) and hit the edge of the cymbal.

To summarise, just buy this thing, it's too cheap not to. Sounds fine as a splash, but serves much better when you get weird with it.

Cheap, thin and alright sounding
28.06.2016
This cymbal was cheap and sounds absolutely fine considering what I paid.
I wanted to experiment with a splash and this wasn't too much money to risk.
It wasn't very well finished however which I hope isn't the case for some of the more pricey Aja range, it would put me off trying out some of their larger pies (which I'd expect to be pretty budget as well) but nothing which cannot be sorted out with a little file and some sandpaper.
It is very thin and lightweight without any significant bell, it doesn't have a great deal of volume unless you blast it, but then that is the point of a splash.
I've had access to real junk budget brand cymbals before which cost a lot more than this and this cymbal is at least expressive and musical rather than just painful.
I recently got to play with a 10" zildjian zxt trashformer splash and to my ears it didn't sound like it was worth approximately 4 times the price of this Zultan.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking to experiment with a splash in their setup without breaking the bank or for a project of some type where a non-standard setup is being used or where a budget cymbal is sought, but one that doesn't sound absolutely awful.
Be aware of the quality control though and the fact that it is very thin and I doubt it'll last a lifetime.
I doubt thin splashes do though and it was 20 euro.

Nice little splash !
Tseway, 05.11.2018
Nice sound and unbeatable price ! It is not a Ride cymbal or a Hihat.. it is just a little splash. Buy and combine as many as you can (or need) and choose between them the sounds you want to produce and ... hit 'em up !

Great Splash - why pay more?!
27.04.2016
This splash sounds incredible, particularly when you consider that it costs less than half the price of many other brands. I bought this to sit on top of my hi-hat stand (balanced on a Sonor hi-hat clutch - Product No.287411) on my cut down gigging kit. (cajon, remote cajon pedal, hi-hat and snare)

I needed a small cymbal to punctuate fills without having to carry and set up another stand. I saw a few other drummers using this set-up online and thought it might work for me so I ordered the clutch and the splash cymbal together. The result is that this cute little cymbal sits nicely on top of my hi-hat rod (a good 2? of the hi-hat rod is held inside the clutch so there?s no chance of it getting knocked off!) A little plumber?s tape on the thread prevents the nut coming loose and dropping the cymbal mid- gig. Needless to say it works brilliantly, I think it has a nice trashy sound with a nice short sustain, which sounds fantastic with many syles of music. I am truly delighted with it and still can?t believe it costs so little in exchange for such a great sound. Highly recommend.

Top value for money
Andrew2867, 10.03.2015
I listened to all the 10" splashes online ans couldn't hear much difference between this one and FAR more expensive models. Now I have it, I am in no way disappointed. Further, I got two to see if I can use them as small, cheap hi hats with a cajon, and you can!

Nasty and Raw!
Kristaps, 27.09.2014
This 10" splash is unbelievably good. It's brutally cheap. 20 euro for splash. And sound: it's really thin and makes nasty, raw, a bit like china sound. Really great for accents. Quality might be a problem, but if you are not lazy, just a bit of sandpaper can solve problem. If you are lazy, just buy a new one, because it's cheap. Great sounding cymbal. I love it.

Good splash for the price
25.08.2014
Wet sounding splash cymbal but the sounds decay fast and there's not much (weak) attack to it. Would consider the tone as bright.

Quality wise it could be improved, seems like thin sheet of metal... Quite fragile to handle and probably could make a dent if not properly taken care of. Not sure if it's only me but seems to oxidise if not taken care of properly. So handle with care.

Moderate built with decent wet-sound and bright tone... for a very cheap price! A bargain for those interested.

Great for the money.
Daniel62900125, 28.09.2015
I really can't complain for the amount that this splash costs... It's not very light so isn't very fast but does have a higher pitch than most 10"s.

Great for stacking or using as a snare effects cymbal.

Great value for money, nice dark trashy sound!
stevedrummer5, 07.12.2014
I was very surprised by this little gem of a splash cymbal - I do a lot of hip hop and drum 'n' bass drumming and this splash has a great dry, dark, slightly trashy and very fast attack and quick decay sound that I think is perfect. A little like a cross between a hand-hammered Turkish cymbal and a Zyldian K series - it sound like a cymbal three times the price. Amazing value and would highly reccommend!

Great value for money
Konstantinos A., 20.11.2014
I bought this on a whim, just to try out a splash on my set, expecting a cheap sound, but I was quite surprised. It won't be the same as a more expensive cymbal for sure, but for ~20euros this is a very good splash.
The sound sample does not give it much justice because it sounds more gong-like than it actually is. Especially in the context of a drum set and other instruments you won't notice anything gong-like.
I gave it 4/5 because even though it's great value for the money, it's still not on the same level as the more expensive splashes out there. Considering its price I'd say it's close to perfect 5/5.
I mean, with a price of ~20 euros, you may just as well give it a try.

Very good value for money
Peter7602, 16.07.2014
A good splash that reacts quickly with a sound that decays fast. Good for accents instead of af a crash. Saound amazingly good in relation to its price. The quality is acceptabel. I sanded the hole to get smoother edges but that was maybe not needed... I like to have my stuff in perfect order though :-)
