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.

Low volume and authentic feel

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 considerate drummers

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.
TheMeuh 26.07.2020
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.

A great choice for reducing volume, at a great price.
The Sunset Kid 11.03.2023
Having multiple kits that require reduced volume, I've always gone with pads as a quick, cheap option, but I decided to spend a bit more with reduced volume heads and reduced volume cymbals, so I can include that as a future option if needed.

These cymbals will always draw comparisons to the more expensive Zildjian and Sabian versions, but I believe these are the better choice, unless money really is no concern.

The build quality is great, they're aesthetically pleasing, and the price is just too good to pass up, especially if you compare the price of the set compared to buying them individually.

In terms of sound, they're really quiet, (I tried them out at one in the morning with no problems!), and they should be played with good, balanced sticks; as the stick attack is almost as loud as the ring of the cymbal itself. They have a satisfying and complete sound. There are no real awkward overtones or nasty metallic buzzes, with the ride cymbal sounding particularly smooth, with the smaller cymbals being slightly more tinny.

The only stand out negative, are the logos. This is an issue on most Millennium/Zultan cymbals, even on the most expensive 'Zultan Heritage' range. They use some kind of ink and process that flakes off pretty easily, even without striking the logo with the sticks. The cymbals arrived with the logos looking slightly scuffed already, so don't expect the logos to last, even if you handle the cymbals carefully.

Overall, very happy!

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.
