Zildjian A Custom 18" Crash Cymbal

Using hammering techniques, Zildjian has created a crash cymbal with a brilliant and even tone reminiscent of classic 40's and 50's sound.
This 18-inch crash from Zildjian's A Custom series is natural and bright with a timbre that's not too high and not too low. The perfect mid-range crash cymbal.

These are the cymbals that launched a million drum solos and shaped musical history - tried and true musical icons whose history spans centuries and infinite musical styles. A Zildjians are the world's most popular and versatile cymbals, and for good reason. Splashes, Crashes, Rides, HiHats or Effects, they all explode with a spectrum of tonal colors and excel in any musical setting. They're extremely sensitive to your particular touch and style, yet capable of producing as much volume as your music demands
