Low Volume, Authentic Feel
Often when it comes to quiet practice drummers are restricted to either just a practice pad or having to put rubber pads or mesh heads on their kit to reduce the volume.
Although this reduces the noise and therefore the complaints from neighbours, it also impacts the feel and response for the drummer.
With their L80 low volume range, Zildjian have created a set of cymbals that not only reduce the noise level but also maintain the authentic feel of hitting real cymbals.
Keep the practice up and the complaints down with the Zildjian L80 cymbal pack.
Zildjian L80 Low Volume 348 Cymbal Set Configuration:
- 14" L80 Hi-Hats
- 16" L80 Crash
- 18" L80 Crash Ride
The Zildjian Low Volume cymbal range were specifically designed to keep playing volume to a minimum.
Their construction features lots of small holes within the surface of the cymbal in order to reduce their overall volume when hit.
As a result, they are up to 80% quieter than standard cymbals, making them ideal for various situations when low volume is needed.
A traditional drum kit set up with normal cymbals usually hits around 107dB which is as loud as a motorbike. The Zildjian L80 cymbals combined with muted drumheads reach a volume of around 87dB which is as loud as an alarm clock. That’s a massive difference!
These quiet Zildjian cymbals therefore allow you to play for longer periods of time and at later or earlier times of day without complaints.
Ideal for Practice
The Zildjian low volume cymbal set is ideal for practice situations when you need the feel and response of your full volume set up but need to keep things quiet to avoid bothering those around you.
Previously drummers have used old t-shirts, blankets or tape to dampen the sound of their cymbals to reduce volume levels.
Not only are these methods not overly effective they also change the playing feel of the cymbals, thus taking away a realistic playing set up.
The Zildjian low volume cymbals prevent the need to compromise on feel allowing you to practice successfully without exposing those around you to loud noise.
The result is the ability to practice more freely at times that suit you without inconveniencing those nearby.
Ideal for Teaching
Typically, when teaching someone how to play drums you’re constantly competing with the high noise levels.
Whether it’s the loud volume of the drums themselves or having to turn the backing track up loud to be heard over the drums, it’s hard to make yourself heard over everything that’s going on.
With the Zildjian L80 cymbal pack there’s no need to shout. Keeping the playing volume to a minimum means you can communicate much easier with students.
You’re even able to play and talk at the same time making explaining concepts and techniques much easier.
Plus, lower volume levels mean a healthier hearing environment for you and your students with no need for ear plugs.
Ideal for Low Volume Gigs
Although brilliant for practice, these Zildjian quiet cymbals have a unique sound and a tone all of their own that make them a great musical tool for creative musical performance.
Their open, transparent sound is ideal for quiet gigs or for occasions when you want an interesting sound alternative to traditional cymbals.
The low volume cymbals have a low pitch to their sound with a short sustain for an overall muted tone.
Use them as a production technique in the studio or to emphasis a certain song section at your gig.
The Zildjian L80 cymbals are a versatile tool that can be used in any way your creative mind can think of.
Push your cymbal creativity with the Zildjian low volume set.
Realistic Cymbal Feel
Although there have been cymbal dampening options available in the past often these products compromise the natural feel of the cymbal.
With Zildjian’s low volume cymbals the natural rebound feel and response of the cymbals remains.
Offering a comfortable, realistic playing feel the L80 cymbals respond and react just like traditional cymbals.
From the stick feel to the cymbal movement, the Zildjian low volume cymbals react just like normal cymbals but they whisper rather than shout.
