The Zen Effects is definitely one of the most unique cymbals we’ve ever made. With its 2” reverse china lip design, the 14” AAX Zen Effects cymbal is a thin weight model with a medium bell. Add to that 6 evenly spaced holes on the bow for added attack and dirt, and 6 two inch discs loosely riveted to the cymbal between the holes, creating a very beefy sizzle effect. Attaching them with only one rivet, allows the discs to swing or move around when played, depending on the angle of the cymbal.
The Zen Effects is an extremely versatile addition to any set up. Use as a stand-alone effect, a hi-hat top, stack on top of a larger cymbal, or use in whatever creative way you can think of.
