By Anonymous

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I have the 14" and it is amazing!!! gives the perfect tone and sustain. it also crashes nice and easy. for the hard rocker this might not be the best for you because this cymbal is so thin but for everything else it does great!!!

Incredible crash!!!

By Berith

from La Canada, CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

These are truly exceptional crashes! I've been playing for close to 10 years now and I've never owned or played on crashes quite as nice as these. I use an 18" for my main crash, and a 17" and 16" for other crashes; all A custom fast crashes. The craftsmanship is unmatched, the sound is smooth, yet full and brightly colorful, and the decay is perfect. In my opinion, these are the best crashes on the market. Better even than the K custom from Zildjian. If you're looking for quality, playability, and perfect tone from a crash, these are the crashes for you!

My Favorite Cymbal on my kit

By ChrisN

from Concord CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I wrote a review for the 16" A Custom Crash, and how great it sounds next to this cymbal (the 16") This cymbal is, like I said, my favorite cymbal on my kit. It is very thin, and has a great clear sound. Don't be scared to whale on it because it will take it no problem. In fact, the louder you crash on it, the better it sounds because it projects a wider range of sounds. All I can say is that if you are looking for an "expansion" cymbal, as I like to call it, this one if for you. Try out all the sizes to see what you like most. I honestly perfer the 16's and 17's but the others sound great as well.

A Custom 18" Fast Crash

By Russell

from morganville NJ

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

This cymbal is amazing for any genre of music! I love it! It is my favorite cymbal. It has that classic cymbal "A" sound, with a modern touch that I love! I'm thirteen and I play rock, punk, hip-hop, rap, and r&b. This cymbal could not be more perfect! But everyone has their own opinion so go to your local Guitar Center and play it now!

Best crash I've ever used/heard

By Bostonanon

from Boston, MA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

Got the 16" version on this cymbal during the memorial day sale, along with a 17" zildjian A custom projection crash, and all i have to say is that after a show we had after i bought both, this cymbal makes me regret buying the other one. Its so much louder, and its the loudest right when you hit it, so for fast rock music, i couldn't see anything better. Very bright sound as well. Highest Recommendation.

Awesome crash!

By Rick

from Jersey City, NJ

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I purchased an 18" A Custom Fast Crash on a recommendation. Best recommendation one could give! It is by far one of the best, if not THE best, I have ever owned or played. The sustain is really sweet. Plus, it compliments my 17" A Custom Crash beautifully. You won't be disappointed if you buy this cymbal!

Perfect Cymbal

By Alex

from Colorado

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I have two 18" fast crashes on my set. They're my favorite for sure! They sound how every drummer imagines a cymbal should sound. The 18 inches are great great feel and ring to them, the resonance is really bright it's great for versitility, I use it for metal, punk and Jazz and sounds great every time. They're really thin so they crack easily but that goes with any thin cymbal.

Best Crash

By dan

from northborough, MA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I got the 16" of this cymbal and it loved it so much I got the 18" as well. Definitely the best sounding cymbals I've played on. I use my 18" as a ride as well as a crash because it just sounds that good, and the bell gives you that perfect round tone you want from a bell. There expensive, but there's a reason, these cymbals are amazing.

sick cymbal

By Will

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

i play at least 1 and a half a day on drums during a school week and i hit pretty hard...and ive had these for about a year and they havent broken. the sound is SEXY. and i recommend buying warranty if u play as much as i do. just to give u an idea of how much i play, i bought some a customs (non fast crash) because it lasted one guy 8 years. i went through em in less than 2. its not because i hit hard..i dont destroy them but i hit hard, but because i play a lot. well who cares just buy the cymbal u wont regret it

great sound

By bill

from Roswell, ga

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

I have the 18 inch-- it is the best cymbal I've ever owned-- sounds like a dozen crashes; also, a nice splashy ride sound for jazz with a sizzler or rivets.

I have 2 and want another

By Mike

from MN & NJ

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

These were the first cymbals I purchased. I bought a 14" first, loved it, and got a 16". I've been playing them both for 4 years and haven't had any problems with cracks etc. I love their responsiveness and their color. There is a whole spectrum of sound that comes out of them. I play mostly in smaller venues (bars and nightclubs) and have wanted more volume from the 14" but the 16" sounds great everywhere. I started looking for another crash cymbal recently and so far nothing can compare to these. 18" here we come

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

    I use A Customs for all my crash cymbals, this is the first Fast Crash I've purchased. It's perfect for smaller venues where I was "gel"ing my cymbals. This doesn't need it. Bright sound and dies out perfectly so I don't even have to muffle at all. I'm going to have to add a 17 or 18 to replace my current ones, it works too well for small clubs.

    'lil 14 inch crash

    By mmmike

    from Beaverton, OR

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

    I got a 14 inch a custom fast crash as the second crash I ever owned. At first I thought it was ok but I quickly got used to its bright and quick tone. It sounds its best when hit hard. Its cutting, its crisp, its fast! This cymbal is perfect if you want that nice bright tone out of a fast crash.

    Zildjian custom crash

    By HxcAdam

    from Indiana

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

    The Zildjian custom crash is the most productive crash cymbol to date on the Zildjian line. Many thought that the Planet Z cymbols we're going to be great, the Zildjian custom crash blows the Planet Z line out of the water. The bang that you hear when you smack the edge of the crash with your stick is impeckable. The ting you hear when you tap the bell is erresistable. Overall,the sound of this cymbol towers over any other.

    16" Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash

    By fivesixkillers

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

    This is, by far, the nicest cymbal I've ever hit. It has a great sound which blends perfectly with all my other cymbals (14" rock hats, 20" z custom ride, 18" a series medium thin crash, 10" a series splash). This cymbal is definitely worth the money.

    Excellent sounding crash!

    By Mike

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

    I have played on this crash on numerous occasions, as my school band has it. It sounds really good on a set, it is nice and bright, and decays perfectly. It sounds good at all volumes. It also is excellent as a suspended cymbal in a Concert Band. This is the main cymbal used when my school plays, and it sounds absolutely perfect. Definitly a high quality cymbal
