A new social-web community for drummers has launched in the form of Zildjian Sound Lab, whereby visitors can create their own virtual cymbal setup from a full library of Zildjian cymbal sound files.
Zildjian’s new HTML5 online social hub allows visitors to choose from nine drum set-ups and build a unique configuration of cymbals or select from a library of preset Zildjian artists setups. Visitors can then share their set up with friends and fellow users via Facebook and Twitter.
Any number of cymbals can be compared side-by-side, while there is also the option to choose from a variety of wallpapers to customise your kit. Furthermore, visitors have the option to print out their setups so that they can take their cymbal choices to their local dealer.
To celebrate the launch, Zildjian has also announced its ‘Build it. Win it’ sweepstake, whereby one lucky Z club winner will win their virtual cymbal setup simply by creating and saving it. Members of the Sound Lab Community will select four weekly winners.
The sweepstake is open to all Z Club members worldwide and runs from now until October 31st. To participate, entrants must be a member of the Z Club in order to save their setup.
