Zildjian Bronze Technology
Zildjian Sheet Bronze Cymbals begin as pre-formed disks cut from metal with uniform thickness. Precision hammering and shaping pummels cymbal discs, loosening the alloy’s molecular structure and freeing up its distinctive tone. Sheet Bronze cymbals have a very fast response with a quick decay, along with excellent durability and a consistent sound within each respective model. Affordably priced, Sheet Bronze cymbals make a great choice for beginners and pros alike.
