The first thing you notice about Zildjian ZXT Trashformer cymbals is their uneven shaping, raw look and a spectrum of cool colors. But as any drummer knows, you can't judge a cymbal by its looks. You have to play it, hear it, experience it. Only then will you how incredibly valuable cymbals like these can be as you create different musical sounds.
When ZXT Trashformers are in the mix, you can let loose and crash, build crash, choke crash or add multi crash effects to your music. Designed with help from progressive rock drummer Mike Mangini of Dream Theater, thin weight Trashformer cymbals have a soft volume and can be played right from the box to give you those nifty splash effects. Or, for more accomplished drummers, Trashformers can be stacked on top of or under any other cymbal to give you an additional layer of distinctive trashy sound.
Available in three sizes, and a solid choice for beginner to pro and everyone in between, Trashformer cymbals are cut from solid sheet bronze and feature a small bell and brilliant finish. The unique lathing process creates a wide range of colors so you get the ultimate combination of good looks and great sonic effects including a bright sound with a relatively short sustain. ZXT Trashformer colors may vary slightly, enhancing the raw, handmade look and mystique.
Sanghoon Lee, perhaps the most famous drummer in all of South Korea, uses the ZXT Trashformers in his kit when writing, performing and recording. You may not know his name, but you know the cymbals he uses—Zildjian.
