New K Zildjians made with the input of the ultimate groove master!

The K Custom Session Crash Cymbal was designed with Steve Gadd and features his distinctive cymbal sound. Gadd worked with the Zildjian Sound Lab for several years to reproduce the classic and sought-after sound of his cymbals. The crashes are light in weight and have a low, dark sound with a quick decay. Like Steve himself, Zildjian's K Custom Session cymbals are versatile enough for any playing and recording situation.

    As reviewed by Coldfront777 on 10/23/2006

    Crash cymbals don't get much nicer than this. The K Custom Session Crash's thin weight and exotic hammering technique gives it a very distinct sound. In other words, you will either love or hate this crash cymbal. Session crashes have a low, dark sound with a medium decay. Like most K Customs, this cymbal is ideal for blues and jazz, though it also works well for mainstream rock. I bought the 16" size about eight months ago, and it has been holding up great. All in all, this cymbal sounds great. But be warned; its not for everyone's style of music.

  • This Cymbal Is Going To Become A Myth

    As reviewed by Gretscher2600 on 10/16/2006

    If you buy the Zildjian K Custom Session Crash cymbal you won't be disappointed. It's an incredible cymbal with a perfect crash noise. It's heavy and perfect with a great overtony and washy stick definition. I highly recommend it and you'll see what I mean if you buy one today.

  • Nice, Fat, High Sound.

    As reviewed by Matt on 10/25/2010

    i got the 16" model a few days ago at a local drum shop of mine, and it's got such a fat, yet bright tone to it. I plan on getting the 18" to accompany my 16". Steve Gadd knows what he wants, and i want it too!
