Spectacularly clean, clear, and articulate.

Zildjian's innovative K Custom "over-hammering" technique applied to these very thin splashes creates warmer, darker cymbals that are even more responsive, versatile, and sophisticated than ever before! The K Custom cymbals are specially designed to provide more volume and cut with a quicker attack and decay than traditional K Zildjians.

Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, and scores more musical movers have sworn by the deep, dry, shimmering K sound developed in 19th century Turkey.

  • Splash It!

    As reviewed by Gretscher2600 on 10/16/2006

    Wow! Incredible! This is what was going through my head when I first struck the Zildjian K Custom Dark Splash, and this is what I thought ever since after. It has that perfect splash sound and it has a nice quick overtone that is darkish and really sizzly washy. I prefer the 10 inch but get which ever one you want. Buy it today! You'll love it!

  • My New Favorite

    As reviewed by Nick on 4/27/2010

    I got this cymbal about a month ago and it is my favorite on my kit! It is perfect for just using it as a crash during a softer song where a subtle little splash of color is necessary. I have the 8" because anything bigger than that sounds like a small crash. Good look and happy buying!

  • Very Dark, Warm, and Expressive Sound

    As reviewed by Zachary Solomon on 2/8/2010

    I purchased the 8" K Custom Splash about 2 months ago and it is, hands down, one of my favorite cymbals on my kit. It provides superb, expressive sound. The Zildjian K Customs are known for their dark, warm, and expressive sound and this splash is exactly that. It is an extremely versatile cymbal and can be thrown in to almost any beat to give it a funky effect. As for durability I can only say for the 2 months I have owned it. I am a moderately hard hitter and so far there are no dents or cosmetic damages. I even dropped it on concrete on the way to a gig and it still hasn't dented or shown any signs of damage. This top-of-the-line Zildjian splash is a must get for any metal or rock drummer.
