"No One's Going to Buy a Bent Cymbal!" That's what Zildjian AR told Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini when he first proposed the 8" Trashformer, which was based on a student's cymbal. That is, of course, until Armand Zildjian got his hands on the prototype and loved it. The Zildjian Trashformer is specially bred for special effects. Its warped radius and patina'd surface are every bit as trashy as its voice. But when it's performance time, this cymbal has endless applications: play it in place of a splash to give your accents a china-like bite, or stack it on a crash (or china, in the case of the PCS001) for an outrageous burst of metallic energy.
8" Zildjian Oriental China Trash bottom
Zildjian may surprise you with this trashy, dry china. The Zildjian 8" Oriental China Trash serves up a shimmering brightness in both its finish and its sound. It produces a fast, explosive response that's perfect for accenting and punctuating with authority. The 8" Oriental China Trash is a suitable to soft to loud playing, and its high pitch and short sustain make it the perfect bottom to this unique stack.
