This is absolutely a must have for any genrea of music. I must say that Zildjian has really out done themselves by adding this to their variety. The efx produces a trashy, dry, shimmering sound which is great for accenting, not to mention the laser cut hole being very appealing. If I were you i would get this one right away. Definitly worth the money! I recommend 18 inch. The EFX is taking drumming to the next level!

This is a nice sounding cymbals (and looks cool too) it has a nice bright and dry sound and explodes reall fast and easy because is paper thin... but breaks very easy! it cracks in the laser cuts very easy even if you don't hit hard your cymbals... so if you're thinking in buying this buy the Pro Coverage Warranty

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

      This adds are really cool mix when played like a small china or when paired with a snare hit. The 14 sounds really good accompanied with my K Hybrids/A Customs. I'm not a power hitter by any means but I would SERIOUSLY make sure to devote your attention to hitting the smaller 14' between the long ports. Not only will it give you a beefier explosion off the crash but it will make it last a lot longer. That or get the protection plan on it and just get after it. That's what I did and I had to get my replaced after a year or so.

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal 20" inch is extremely fast and bright. its surprisingly durable as well. Not only does the cymbal look cool but it adds personality to your kit. Great for a left crash. i must say the K series efx crash has a dark overtone which is much better.

          Good Cymbal, Does not sound like a crash

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

          This is a good sounding cymbal but make sure it is what you are looking for. It sounds pretty dark and has a very long overtone structure. The over tones really won't cut through a loud live performance, but I am going to be using this to record with so I really didn't want that much mud.
          If you are looking for something between a crash & a large china-this would be perfect.
          Don't order it as a possible replacement for your 19" A custom crash.

            Couldn't have anything smaller than the 20" EFX. Big/bright/bold sound. Will never let this Zildjian go! Go w/the 20", a bit steep in price but save your money.

            A Great Addition to Any Drum Set

            By chuck flint

            from Mustang, OK

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            I've wanted one of these EFX cymbals for quite awhile, especially after seeing many top artists using this or the K Custom model. It provides excellent "wash" effects at high volumes, although even when played at mid volumes it sounds great. It also is a great crash in it's own right, but I really bought it for using it more as a loud ride/effects cymbal. It is a great compliment to my 16' Meinl crash and 10' Meinl splash. The finish is great, too.

            I've had this Zildjian EFX 14" crash cymbal before I had an income hickup. Now that it's back with my set-up, It truly was a serious missing element. This EFX is very diverse with just about all percussion sounds you can throw at it!

            I've been using the 16" in our church praise band for about 4 years, and it is by far my favorite cymbal. Great when you need a full crash sound without killing everyones ears. Also works great as a crash-ride. Nice full sound even when playing at lower volumes.

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            I purchased the 14 inch EFX cymbal and it is a great addition to my other Zildjians! It has an awesome sound and it really adds a nice touch to any type of music. It is a thin cymbal but, it doesn't take a hard hit to get a big sound out of it. I highly recommend this cymbal ( or any Zildjian)!
