Product Description

A Custom cymbals deliver a sophisticated expression of classic Zildjian A Series sounds. They feature thinner weights and radically innovative hammering.

A Custom Features
Selective
Concentrates on an exclusive range of sounds drawn from the A Zildjian palette.

Distinctive
Radical rotary hammering techniques, exclusive to Zildjian, and special thin weights create a sophisticated sound quality reminiscent of cymbals from the 40's and 50's.

Modern
Enables contemporary drummers to add classic A Series sounds to today's music.

Unique
Every cymbal is individually cast and rolled from the secret Zildjian alloy, creating instruments that each have a distinct voice and character.

Sound: Great sound, I have Feature: No features. Ease of Use: Um, hit the cymbals, they make great sounds,,,,very simple to use. Quality: They're Zildjian A series, so that speaks for itself. Value: I agree with the other review, they could come down in price a bit. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed alot of support but what support I have received has been great. The Wow Factor: These cymbals in my setup are incredible, the sight and sound of my kit is outstanding. Overall: I have a 17", 18" and 19" crashes and they sound great together, I have the exact sound I have been looking for.

"Great cymbal, Great sound!"
Sound: I love the sound. It awseome! It projects like it was design to. I love the feel of it as well. I own a 16" and a 17". Feature: N/A Ease of Use: Keep in mind this is a thin cymbal for those of you who have a problem cracking cymbals (reason you hit to hard) this cymbal is not for you. I play in a rock band, and have been using these cymbals for about 2 1/2 years, and have not cracked one yet. The secret is not to kill the cymbal. Quality: No problem with the quality, I even use one as a crash ride! Value: I give it a 7 because, I do believe they could come down in price just a little. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt with the company, I have never had a problem with there products. The Wow Factor: They look great, sound great, play great! Overall: I would probaly replace with the same!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
