ZILDJIAN ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF “ZILDJIAN SOUND LAB,” A NEW, SOCIALLY-ENABLED CYMBAL CONFIGURATOR COMMUNITY, AND THE “BUILD IT. WIN IN” SWEEPSTAKES
Norwell, MA: The Avedis Zildjian Company announces the launch of Zildjian Sound Lab, an exciting new social-web community for drummers, where visitors build their own virtual cymbal set ups from a full library of Zildjian cymbal sound files and then share their set ups with friends. Visitors to the Sound Lab may choose from nine drum set ups to build a unique configuration of cymbals or select from a library of pre-set Zildjian artist set-ups. The Sound Lab allows visitors 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 set ups so they may take their cymbal choices to their local dealer. The most exciting feature of Zildjian’s new Sound Lab is the ability to share cymbal set ups with the world through Facebook and Twitter. The Zildjian Sound Lab is built using HTML 5 to ensure its ease of use on many platforms.
To celebrate the launch of the Zildjian Sound Lab Cymbal Set-Up Builder, the company will kick off the “Build It. Win It!” sweepstakes, where one lucky Z Club member will win his/her virtual cymbal set up just by creating and saving it. Four weekly cymbal winners will also be selected from members of the Sound Lab Community who use the built in “Share" button to tweet their set ups and mention @ZildjianCompany and the hashtag #myZildjianSetUp. The sweepstakes is open to all Z Club members worldwide and runs from October 1 to October 31, 2013. Sweepstake entrants must be or become a member of Z Club in order to save their set ups and be entered to win. No purchase is necessary to enter, and Zildjian’s Z Club is free to join for anyone 13 years of age or older.
Details of the sweepstakes can be found at Zildjian.com/builditwinit.
