Zildjian A Custom EFX Brilliant Crash Cymbal

Crafted with symmetrically patterned grooves, the A Custom Series EFX Crash Cymbal delivers a bright, present, and aggressive sound perfect for accents.
A Refined Classic Sound. It's tough to top the unmistakable and reliable sound of A Zildjians for almost any playing situation, but the award-winning A Customs are an irresistible alternative. Developed with the assistance of drumming icon Vinnie Colaiuta, A Customs utilize radical rotary hammering techniques, thin to medium weights and a striking Brilliant finish for a crisp, sweet, sophisticated A Zildjian sound. Not too dark, not too bright - cymbals that are just right for modern music.

This special effects crash cymbal has a unique set of laser generated "cut outs" that allow it to produce a quick, dry and trashy sound used for accenting and punctuating. The brilliant finish makes this "must have" shimmer like any A Custom.

"Just what I needed"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Wanted something that was trashy and cutting like a china, but not overpowering or clangy. This cymbal sits nicely in many arrangements, explodes and decays very quickly. It is cutting as well, but not in an overpowering way. Like the other A Custom Zildjian's, this cymbal has a nice shimmering and modern sound. It is great for accents or in a situation that you need a short, yet full crash down. Works well for many styles whether you use it as an effects ride, crash or china type.
