Zildjian S Family 18-inch China
This 18-inch China cymbal from Zildjian's S Family has an explosive and powerful character. Its sound is bright and trashy, which makes it ideal for playing accents.

Whether you're a beginner or a more advanced drummer, this versatile cymbal deserves a place in your setup, no matter what style of music you play.
Zildjian S Family
Zildjian S Family cymbals are made of B12 alloy, which consists of 88% copper and 12% tin. In order to achieve a new and modern sound from an age-old material, developers in the Zildjian sound lab experimented with different techniques over the course of two whole years! During that time, they created and tested various designs in the lab as well as in the field, so to speak. The S Family series adds a unique, bright sound to the Zildjian assortment.
Sound characteristics of the S Family series
For starters, the cymbals have a brilliant finish. They have an overwhelmingly clear and expressive sound, and an average volume level range. If we compare the cymbals from the K Custom series, which are all made of B20 alloy, then it would be safe to say the S Family cymbals boast more clarity and focus. This has to do with the ratio of copper to tin, as well as the production techniques. At the end of the day, Zildjian's S Family cymbals offer a well-balanced frequency response, making them suitable for just about any style of music you can think of!
