A classic among Rock cymbals
Cymbal manufacturer Zultan began its success story with the launch of its "Rock Beat" series in the year 2000. These cymbals are hammered and milled by hand in Zultan's workshops by Turkish artisans and guarantee a full and multifaceted sound that easily cuts through in a mix and makes them perfect for Rock music. Thanks to the wide range of models, sizes, and thicknesses available, however, players of many other styles will also find what they are looking for here. Never before has a professional cymbal sound been available at such an affordable price.
Bright sound and dazzling looks
For centuries, a combination of 80% copper and 20% tin has been the recipe for perfection when it comes to cymbal-making, and is consequently the one used by every manufacturer for their top-of-the-line series. The prices that these cymbals fetch leave the majority of drummers shaking their heads, however - all the better therefore that Zultan's Rock Beat series is within the reach of those who don't have a fortune to spend. The 18" China Holey provides powerful accents and possesses a large dynamic range, while its dazzling finish makes it look pretty damn good at the same time.
More than just Rock
When it says "Rock" on the outside, there should be Rock on the inside - and that is absolutely true of Zultan's Rock Beat series. Thanks to its punchy sound and relatively long sustain, the 18" China Holey can easily cut through over distorted guitars and is therefore the ideal choice for all types of Rock music. Thanks to its sensitive response, however, it already develops its full potential in the middle dynamic range and is thus also a great choice for styles like Pop, Funk, and Blues.
To provide traditional craftsmanship at a fair price has been the guiding principle of Zultan ever since it was founded in 2000. The firm’s practice of selling directly to the end customer makes it possible to offer very customer-friendly prices. Nevertheless, the production process for Zultan’s trademark cymbals, which are made mainly in Turkey, is of the highest quality, a fact which has ensured they have also been a fixture in the Thomann range since 2011. The nearly 250 Zultan products cover several cymbal series, catering for all sectors of the music market. Zultan also offers accessories such as bags and drumsticks. Thanks to the use of high-quality materials and manufacturing expertise, Zultan really does offer uncompromising quality at a reasonable price.
Professional sound at a budget-friendly price
Those who start learning to play the drums should pay particular attention to the quality of their cymbals, because while lower-grade cymbals may be sufficient for the needs of some players, they do still have clear limitations in terms of dynamics and expression. With its Rock Beat 18" China Holey (or perhaps even one of its affordable complete sets), Zultan gives drummers impressive quality at an affordable price, so an enjoyable playing experience is guaranteed in the long term. Even professional drummers who already have B20 cymbals may find the 18" China Holey to be the perfect addition to their existing setup.
