By far, the most reliable crash I've ever had. It sounded amazing when I heard it at my local guitar center, sounded amazing when I took it home, sounded amazing at the first show I did with it, and still sounds amazing over two and half years later (yes, it has lasted that long). My set has undergone several changes over the past two years and this cymbal has been used for everything from main crash to ride/crash to accent-only crash. It goes with any kind of music and goes well. It is by far the most diversified crash I have ever had the joy of playing on. I would recommend this crash for anybody for any genre.

These sizes, from 14" to 20" in size...have VERY different sound. The kit at my school has a 17", which in my opinion sounds TERRIBLE. It's way too bright, doesn't have much "color", and surprisingly for a such a bright cymbal, doesn't have too much sustain, it even sounds kind of like my old B8 crash. The 19", on the other hand, blew me away, I was at GC and they had it on display with a DW Performance kit..Wow, that thing was beautiful, nice and complex shimmer, a nice long sustain probably due to the bell size, and the bell actually sounded great for a crash. Maybe it's just me, liking bigger and darker cymbals, but I'd recommend handing over a few extra bucks to get a bigger, better crash.

best cymbals

By Deek

from balls

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

The A custom crash Cymbals are really the best sounding, overall cymballs out there. after using this line, anything else is such a dissapointment. The sound is literraly music to your ears. they are expensive, but the "cheap" line by zildjian are absolute garbage. The A custom is a Ferrari, and the ZBT's are Al Bundy's Dodge

Zildjian A custom crash

By dystrophyian

from hartford city In.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is in a league of its own. With a very crisp sound and a durable build this cymbal sets itself apart from all others in this price range and some that are more expensive. I would definately recommend this cymbal.

The Best Crash

By Tony Muratori

from Hammond IN

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 16" a few months ago, and to my ears it is the perfect sounding crash. I'm seriously considering buying the 18". I can see why guys have a complete set of these cymbals!

Best cymbals I've ever played

By Marcos

from Florida

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

These cymbals are amazing. They sound very dark when played softly, and they sound very bright when played loud. They are just so perfect. I recommend these 100%. You will not regret buying these.

Great Cymbal for any type of Musician!

By PorkPIEguy55

from Cary, NC

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

The Zildjian A Custom Crash is a great symbol. It is loud and very sharp. Its perferct if you are an intermediate drummer or even proffesional! I am professionally doing gigs right now and I love this cymbal, it is probably my favorite cymbal. I used to own a set of sabian AA customs, but this cymbal is much better!

Sweet Crash

By Stenchof76

from KC, MO

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

After buying the 16", I knew this was one of the best lines for crash cymbals out there. Great versatility, and it's true what Zildjian's description says-- "Not too bright, not to dark..." I'm now looking into getting a 17", and potentially buying a couple from the medium line as well. These cymbals will be complementary to whatever style you want to play.

GOOD CYMBAL!!!

By windmasterx

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 16" used for $119, and have had it for almost a year, and after 3 or 4 years of previous use from another heavy, drum pounding drummer, and the beating it took from myself, it has finally, and sadly cracked, but not to worry, stopped the crack and no harm no foul. Well, this cymbal has an amazing sound, not to bright, and not to dark, right inbetween. Very distinct sound. GET THIS FRIGGIN' CYMBAL!!! YOU WON'T ReGreT It!!!

Great Cymbal

By BlinkStillLives

from Portland, OR

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal:

I own the 19in crash. The cymbal I replaced with this one was a 16in ZBT. This cymbal is so much better. The price is a little high but well worth it. The only problem is that it shows fingerprints and the white paint off my favorite drum sticks the travis barker signature sticks and the cleaner dosent work good enough to get rid of it.
