i use the 18" A custom china and its a great cymbal, sounds great and is a great addition to your kit, the only problem i found is that you shouldnt hit it too hard, i use AHEAD 7a sticks and im quite a heavy hitter and have managed to put quite a large crack in it pretty quickly ... funny thing is it still sounds good even with this crack! Go try this cymbal out its really good.

Definitely not worth the money. I got it as a birthday gift, and after a while it began to crack on the edges. it would be useful if played softly, but a decently hard hit will crack the edge, which ultimately destroys the quality and richness of sound.

7th Fall's Drummer

By Tanman

from Minneapolis, Minnesota

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Custom China Cymbal:

Honestly this is one of the worst china's I have ever played on. Last night I set up my drum set which was an amazing set but my friend brought that 18inch china to use. Our opening song calls for a china right away. I hit it like I normally hit my 16 wuhan and I could have got a better sound out of my 16 inch zildjian crash. Listen on the sound bytes and you can hear the open ringing. My bet: buy wuhan chinas. Cheaper. Better. and something that actually sounds good.

great peice of art

By Jeff-F17Nw

from Freehold, NJ

Comments about Zildjian A Custom China Cymbal:

What an amazing peice of art. I recommend this china to anyone of any styles of music. This is a masterpeice. Great buy, and perhaps the best china on the market in my opinion. Zildjian really did find out the right way to make the perfect china. One word of advice... Get the cymbal if you can.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom China Cymbal:

I usually don't like zildjians. The Z customs sound like brass cymbals which is sad because I'm a hard hitter. This china will take a beating while still sounding bright, colourful, and just amazing.Finally, something good from Zildjian!
