Welcome to Zildjian Sound Lab Videos. In this installment we talk about and play the ZBT Rock Boxset (20" ZBT Rock Ride, 16" ZBT Rock Crash, and 14" ZBT Rock HiHats) with Paul Francis. He plays the cymbal and talks about applications and specs of these cymbals.

Here's a transcript of the video:

Paul Francis: Welcome to the Zildjian Sound Lab video. Today we're going to talk about our ZBT Rock cymbals. ZBT stands for "Zildjian Bronze Technology." These cymbals are made from a B-8 alloy, or what is known as 92% copper, 8% tin. And these cymbals, because of the alloy combination, are very bright and very cutting.

The ride cymbal is going to have very, very clear stick definition and a very clear cutting bell. You have a 16" Crash with a larger than normal bell that's going to be loud and cutting. And a very nice, solid, heavy set of hihats.

This combination here, the 20", the 16" and the 14"is available to you as a boxset. And I welcome you to view these on Zildjian.com or play them at your local Zildjian dealer.
