As full of holes as a well-known cheese...

Who doesn't know this dilemma: The neighbours and bandmates are annoyed and your ears are ringing, but switching to rubber practice or e-drum pads and accepting the associated losses in playing feel is out of the question. The Millenium Still Series cymbal set in regular finish solves this problem thanks to the special manufacturing method used, and is the perfect compromise when it comes to volume reduction combined with a realistic playing feel. The set includes a 14" hi-hat, a 16" and an 18" crash cymbal, and a 20" ride.

Authentic in feel and subdued in volume

Small, precisely drilled holes are distributed all over the entire surface of the cymbal, and in addition, twelve larger holes are placed around the bell. This special production method effectively reduces the volume so that the cymbals keep what the name promises even with stronger hits. At the same time, the drummer will experience an authentic playing feel. The sound of these cymbals can be described as hissing, with a strong treble range and perhaps less powerful than regular cymbals, but instead adapted to the intended purpose.

For anyone who wants to be considerate

The Millenium Still Series cymbal set is affordable for every drummer thanks to its unbeatably low price. No matter whether you're a beginner or a pro: This cymbal set is perfect for anyone who rehearses at a moderate volume with their bandmates or practises alone and doesn't want to do without the feeling of a real cymbal. If you also muffle the shells of the drum set with standard rubber pads, you get a perfect practice set that goes easy on all the ears in the room.

About Millenium

Millenium is one of Thomann’s in-house brands and has been an integral part of the store’s range since 1995. More than 800 products – from drums and percussion through to accessories such as microphone stands, racks, and recording workstations – bear the Millenium label. These products are made by renowned companies who also manufacture products for other well-known brands. Since they are imported directly from the factory without any further distributors or sales companies, they can be sold at particularly attractive prices. Incidentally, one in every four Thomann customers has already purchased at least one Millenium product.

For practice purposes or for smaller gigs

Whether they are used for teaching, in the rehearsal room with bandmates, or for solo practice at home: Thanks to their effective volume reduction, attractive price-performance ratio, and authentic playing feel, the cymbals of the Millenium Still Series are highly recommended for quiet practice with real cymbals. But even when used live in very small locations, your fellow musicians will appreciate that the cymbals do not drown out the overall sound of the band and thus ruin the quality of the performance.

That bell is not an accurate representation of what you will get.

Pro's
-Perfect budget way of getting a better feeling while practicing
-The only series I could find where you can get additional separate cymbals. (splash, china, smaller hihat and anything in this set)
-Sound isn't the focus for a practice cymbal but the're not bad at al.
-Most of the sound remaining is of a frequency that hardly passes a decently insulated wall, I still wouldn't play them in an apartment though.

Con's
-The hihat can get a bit loud,
-The bell of the ride is nearly flat. I call the pictures on this page, and especially the video's you can find by Thomann false advertising. The current stock (they checked for me) all have the same flat bell. I find it hard to play and it sounds nothing like the video on the separate ride page.

Overall I recommend most of the cymbals in this set, but in my opinion the ride is just not what is advertised here.

Skeptical of quietness, but happily proved wrong
Lazlo Panaflax 07.04.2022
Swapped out my rubber cymbals from my old Yamaha DTXtremeIII, because I wanted better feel. I took a punt on these because they were so cheap. I am so happy I took the plunge:

Very quiet: they can seem a bit loud on playing, but the sound dissipates very quickly: kids cannot hear them in their bedroom directly above.

Great feel: very light because of lack of material, but overwhelming real feel when compared to rubber pads. A true game game changer in the evolution of quiet drum tech.

Great looks: aesthetically, they look fantastic, even for a budget product. Why would you even bother going with the more expensive Zildjian, other than branding snobbery.

Amazing budget set
brenyooo 02.01.2021
When lockdown kicked in i decided to invest in a set of these (with some mesh heads) and set up the kit in the attic. Just for reference i'm a heavy handed hard rock drummer for 15 years.

Volume: I find it very good, it's much quieter than my normal (medium and heavy) cymbals but that's expected.. No complaints from the neighbours over 6 months.
Feel: Not bad at all, perfectly playable.
Tone: If you keep in mind that these are not for your studio recording, i think it's fine. A little harsher, a little more high frequencies, less body. As expected. Only the HH feels a bit too harsh for my ears.
Durability: No problem over 6 months with my heavy hands.

I'd recommend these to anyone who wants to have a set of quiet cymbals.. You can go for the big brands and pay 3x the money, get 1-2 dB noise reduction and a touch more tone.. but i don't see the point as i'll only use them for practice in the attic and maybe maybe an occasional acoustic gig.

Great Practice Cymbals
MIsaac16 10.03.2020
I live in America and have been looking for an alternative to the much more expensive Zildijian Low Volume or Sabian Quiet Tone cymbals. These are not only much cheaper but they rival zildjian and sabian in quality and sound. On my practice set at home I used electronic plastic cymbals but I finally decided to switch to low volume cymbals to get that feel that I was missing using electronic cymbals. These have great tonality and weight to them. They rebound and play like real cymbals. The crashes sound nice and the ride has a nice ping and bell sound. My only complaint are the hi hats. They are fairly loud. If you closed your eyes and heard them you might mistake them for regular acoustic cymbals. Not a huge deal considering my set up but for some people it might be. Other than that I am completely satisfied with my purchase. For the price and quality, these cymbals can not be beat. Thomann has just gained a new loyal customer.
