    Any other brand you could recommend me?

    I am probably going to spell this wrong: Zadijian. Hmm, looks wrong, all right. Anyway, that is what my husband bought me. They are orchestral quality.

    Sorry to say that you don't want to purchase the kind suggested in the (above) eBay link...they're cheap pressed tin and they are made with a single hole in the middle for the elastic, which will make them virtually unsuable for playing (the middle hole, rather than a 2-slot model will rock and swivel and you won't be able to hit cymbals together with any accuracy).
    Zills are a personal choice, as some dancers like the high pitched ring, others like a low bell sound.
    Many beginners start with the very affordable Sorayan line (they have a student model on their website as well as wave files so you can listen to the ring!) Just google Sorayan and the website should come up.
    Personally, I am a fan of zills made by Turquoise International...specifically their B-series. Low bell tones...love em!
