As the leader in cymbals, Zildjian is always looking for new and innovative ways to bring a better musical experience to the drumming community. One area where all drummers commonly express dissatisfaction is the use of neoprene pads, mutes, and other dampening devices on cymbals to practice at a reasonable volume. This is true especially for drummers in densely populated cities. How are you to actually know what you sound like when you can't feel or hear it? With drumming being a highly tactile instrument, Zildjian has come up with the solution - the Low Volume Family of cymbals. This unique new playing experience delivers a quieter sound without losing the authentic feel of a Zildjian cymbal.
Through tireless research and development, a specialized pattern was achieved to deliver the best of both worlds: musical sound and lower volume. This innovative pattern is combined with a special proprietary alloy with a unique matte finish that enables our Low Volume cymbal to have fewer high frequencies and is up to 80% quieter than a traditional cymbal.
Using a sound level meter, Zildjian compared the decibel levels of a traditional Zildjian cymbal versus our Low Volume Series, both played with consistent power. The results showed that a Low Volume cymbal is up to 80% quieter than a traditional Zildjian cymbal

Zildjian Cymbals Limited Warranty
Zildjian cymbals carry a two (2) year warranty, from date of purchase, against manufacturing flaws. Zildjian requires that all cymbals for warranty replacement be returned to Zildjian for review. Quality is important to Zildjian and Zildjian uses these opportunities to track the manufacture of the cymbal in question to ensure quality continues to improve.
Please contact Zildjian Customer Service for a return authorization number (RA #). Once you have your RA#, please return the cymbal to Zildjian.
Please enclose a copy of your original purchase receipt with your cymbal, as this is vital in determining the warranty period. Stores normally keep these on file if you need to obtain one. For online orders, a printout including date of purchase and the item will suffice. In the event you can't acquire a receipt, Zildjian can look up your cymbal's age by the laser-etched serial number to determine if it's still under warranty.
A cymbal will not be replaced if it has been misplayed/abused, dropped, played with excessive force or has pieces broken off. Cymbals bought second hand or used in a lease program, or are more than two years beyond date of purchase are not covered under warranty.
Please package your broken cymbal in a clean box from your local Post Office or UPS Store. Do not use pizza boxes or anything similar. Cymbals returned in anything other than clean packing may be returned to sender unopened. Please allow 6-8 weeks for your replacement cymbal.
