I have the 6" and 8" splashes, and am very happy with both. They're very thin, with a loud voice that decays quickly. Absolutely awesome close to your hi-hats for quick fills and accents. And with two small splashes, you get a great "One, two" combo for some killer fills or endless patterns between your snare, hats, and splashes. They aren't for everything, but when they're needed, they add lots of life to your kit!

I got the 8 inch splash and when it came it was the worst sounding thing I have ever heard. I returned it right away. There was no ring to it. It sounded like I was hitting a hunk of tin, very little musical quality.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

    I purchased the 6" as this was a need for the artist I started playing for recently. The leaving drummer reported me that this was the splash he used on the CD and for the shows. After I got it I have been practicing with it and had yesterday 7/17/14 my first show with the band. And I couldn't be any happier. It is exactly as I expected, and what I expected. Explosive, bright and very cutting. Great little splash, proabably best money I ever spend. Love it.....

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        Ordered these after playing a mixed set of Soultones. The Soultone Cymbals are very well constructed but not well rounded as far as sound is concerned.
        I have always wanted a set of A Custom's and decided to jump on these. Great buy for the money although I wish the 18" crash was a little brighter.

        Quality Cymbal

        By sam england

        from Melbourne, Florida

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        Great splash with a big quick sound and versatile tones. Eight inches worth every penny and far from cheaper, low quality cymbals. Currently above my ride on an eight inch stacker with no problems. Soon I'll add an a custom six inch splash on the left side of the set, as well as an a custom thin crash. I have it paired with z customs (ride, thin crash, hats) and it fits perfectly.

        Gotta love those Zildjian A Custom cymbals

        By Richard Moquin

        from South Windsor, CT

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        I have several Ziljian A Custom cymbals; 6 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch, 14 inch, 14 inch hats, 15 inch, 16 inch, 18 inch, 20 inch rezo pang and 2 other 20 inchers. Recently I added an 8 inch splash because I can't resist the suble sound difference the smaller size cymbals provide. I can hear the specific pitch each cymbal resonates and they really make a kit well rounded with voices that create those accents you are looking for to complete the musical phrasing you see in your mind's eye. I have played other brand cymbals, but these are in my price range for quality and value for the buck. Even if I could afford pricier cymbals, I don't know if I would spend the extra money because I am happy with the sound these cymbals produce.

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        i just dont know about this cymbal. i wasn't REAL pleased with the sound of this cymbal. don't get me wrong, it's ok, but it wasn't what i was expecting. then again, how good can you make ANY 6 inch cymbal sound? it sounds good for what it is, but it wasn't what i pictured. i would probably buy it again for certain applications, but i will probably stay away from 6 inch splashes altogether, simply because it doesn't fit our sound.

          Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

          as the title says one of the best money can buy i own a 6,8,10 and 12" a custom splashes, 6" is a nice tinkle for add in's 8 and 10" cut through music with distinctive sounds, 12" is most powerful but more along the crash line instead of splash but goes perfect with a 14" a custom crash bottom line if your looking for the perfect splash go with 10" if your wanting to spice it up a little go with the other sizes.

            I have bought several splash cymbals that have not given me what I expect. That bright, sizzling, splash sound with a fairly quick decay. I bought the 10" Custom A and love it. It inspires me when I use it tastefully with all styles of music I play. I plan to purchase the 12" as well.
