Default Re: Zyn Cymbals

I have a set of 15" Super Zyn 5 stars which is very very close to 15"A Zildjians from the 60's, a 16"Super Zyn crash that is beautiful and an 18" Super Zyn 5 star crash / ride that will kick any A Custom's butt. Super Zyns rule!

Here's the 18" -
here too compared to some Paistes:

Very nice indeed. But not all are that good unfortunately. From my experience they run hot or cold. You have to hear then first to make sure you're not getting a clunker. But the best of them are right up there with older Zildjians. The 1950's and produced darker the sounding ones, seeing as how they were partially or completely hand hammered.

Are you from the U.K. by any chance, or maybe down under?
