Pitch Black ZIldjians

Post  Toddy on Wed Jul 16, 2008 9:03 am

Hi all!

I just had a look at the new zildjian newsletter and saw the new range they have out called pitch black. What do you guys expect these to be like? Paiste coloursound revisited?

Pitch Black Zildjians

Post  Regal on Wed Jul 16, 2008 12:18 pm

Hey Toddy,

Personally i dont think they'll be too different to the Paiste coloursound or the newer white Rude and black Alpha (slipknot) series'.
Zildjian is my preffered cymbal co. and im hoping they manage to bring colour without changing the sound too much!
Had a listen to the Rudes that are coated and they sound dead. Very little sustain.

i'd say it'd be stupid to record with these cymbals, and i'd like to see any Paiste or Zildjian artists use these on an album! in sayin that tho.. people are endorsing them, and it must be for a reason drunken
Anyone got any of these new cymbals?

it'd be great to hear more about them!

Just for your info heres a link to what Zildjian say about them...

It seems the coating process is somewhat different to Paistes Colour Sounds.

They look like a semi pro cymbal, kinda like the alphas - the true test is in how long the coating lasts? I've seen countless color sounds that look terrible due to coating loss. Theres bound to be some good sounding pies in the range as is the case with any cymbal series but they look geared towards the heavier players. Found these videos on the zildjian site - the K custom complex rides sound interesting.

Yea im a zildjian man too but it seems a bit gimicky theyre bringing these out, i never liked the coloursounds and like Mark said they looked like crap after some use. I gota say the rezo crashes (especially the 17") push my buttons though, they sound wicked as!

Yeah I reckon they will rock - 17's are my favorite size and those reso crashes sound like they are a nice weight.

from what i have read on other forums they sound like a lump of steel, but i can't comment first hand.
coating will always do that though it effects sustain, die casting would be the way to go if they could keep the strength in the alloy

Zildjian has scrapped the pitch black line of cymbals so they are no longer in production. Maybe a collectors item down the track?
