Tomorrow, on October 1, the Avedis Zildjian Company is launching its new Zildjian Sound Lab, where drummers can build their own virtual cymbal set ups from a full library of Zildjian cymbal sound files and then share their set ups with with the world through Facebook and Twitter.
You can choose from nine drum set ups or select from a library of pre-set Zildjian Artist set ups from drum greats like Kenny Aronoff, Brian Blade, Jason Bittner, Ginger Baker, Travis Barker, Keith Carlock, Glendon "Teddy" Campbell, Matt Cameron, Peter Erskine, Steve Gadd, Dominic Howard, Taylor Hawkins, Will Kennedy, Joey Kramer, and Tommy Lee among many others.
The Sound Lab also allows you to compare any number of cymbals side-by-side, select cymbals that instantly appear on a kit, and play individual cymbals to produce up to two different sounds.
In addition, visitors are provided with a variety of wallpapers to customize their kits and the option to print out their set ups.
Also on October 1, Zildjian is kicking off the 'Build It. Win It!' contest where one lucky Z Clubber will win his/her virtual cymbal set up. For more info visit zildjian.com/soundlab.
