Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

I bought this baby today & i love it. It's got an awesome sounds & since it's a Projection Crash it's louder & it holds longer than the regular A Custom. This or any Zildjian Cymbal i highly recommend, it's a must buy for all drummers out there... Zildjian's A Customs are the Best in the World.

I Have Found My Cymbal's

By NOVAdrummer317

from Nokesville, VA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

I can't tell you how many diff cymbal brands I have had and diff model's. Nothing compares to Zildjian Cymbals...I started out with there ZXT line and now have upgraded to their A Custom Crash's ...Started out with the thin line...bad idea if you play rock or hit hard don't get them you will break them....I need replacements so I tried out the Projection Crashes and I must say they are amazing....they are loud and really cut through the music...there high pitched cymbals and I love them...I play with a 17inch and an 18in and they are perfect. Very Bright intial sound and then decay really fast. Plus they are shiny which are nice..not one complaint about them...BUY THESE

Great Cymbal!

By MOFDrummer

from West Chester, OH

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

When I was creating my new cymbal setup, I was basing it around the Z Custom 18" Medium crash. I needed something with a deeper pitch that would sound good crash-riding. The A Custom 18" Projection Crash was EXACTLY what I wanted. It's the perfect counterpart to my Z Custom: deeper and throatier, but bright and cutting at the same time, matching the Z Custom's volume output well. When struck at the same time, the two cymbals sound like one blended mass of sound wave ecstasy. Even by itself, the A Custom 18" Projection Crash does very well. And, as another review mentioned, this is the best cymbal ever for swells, PERIOD. I highly recommend it!

Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash

By Gtron

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

I used to own this cymbal, the 18", but returned it. I play loud rock, and it could not cut through my other larger cymbals - 24" 2002 paiste ride, 20" 2002 paiste crash. The sound is excellent by itself though. Probably could cut through a more moderate cymbal wall fairly easily.

Best crash cymbal available

By Mrpearlzildjian

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

Though pricey, the Zildjian A Custom Crash Cymbal is easily at the top of it's game. With a crisp, projective sound and beautiful finish, this Crash cymbal outweighs all of it's competition. Any top drummer or percussionist would be privelidged to outfit their kit with these cymbals, and it is the only choice for serious musicians.

Perfect Crash

By Nouseforaname

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is one of the best sounding i have ever played. Its bright and has a perfect volume for both live and recording. I have played many cymbals over the years and i don't think I will buy any other crashes from now on. Cracking cymbals is always an issue because I am a hard hitter, and the flexability of the A Custom Projection makes it hard to crack unlike other heavier Zildjians, such as the Z customs. Being slightly thicker than the regular A Custom allows the louder, more full sound. I own both the 17" and 18", and I'm currently looking to purchase the 19".

Smooth sound!

By Drummaster Bohman

from WVC UT

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

I just got this cymbal a couple weeks ago, and I used it in a show the other day for my band Super Hero, and it is just a sweet crash! The sound is smooth and precise and it cuts through great! It also meshes great with all the other instruments! Definitely good choice if you want a cymbal that will mesh great with any sound!

Great for recording

By Amos

from Moweaqua, IL

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

I used a 16" and and 18" A Custom projection crash to record my band's CD. The crashed sounded awesome on the CD. Just like I expected them to sound. Great for recording and rock, as they are thicker and made for projecting their sound;(hence the name)

Great Cymbal

By Drummer Boy

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is worth the money! I own a 18 in. and it is awsome. When hit on the edge it sustains very cleanly and when hit on top with the head of the stick it has a slightly papery sound to it. With these qualities, it can be used for very diverse music genre. Overall it is worth the money.

projectttt

By billy

from henderson nv

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

i can't imagine a cymbal setup without an 18" a custom projection crash. it's been my go-to for 2+ years now and fits any situation. it's powerful, punchy, musical, and sings like a choir. pair it up with a 17" a custom crash.

    Impressive Application

    By Juston Grant Jr

    from Niceville, Florida

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

    This is the type of cymbal I have needed for years, it is suited for my application, It will be exactly what I have needed in different songs of the praise and worship band. especially in certain usage of dynamics, cymbal roll build up. I like it's somewhat sustaining effects. It is the largest crash I have purchased in probably 30yrs. I am so glad Zildjian came out with this type of cymbal, which another reason why I have used nothing but since 1968!
