Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

I've been using the 16" in our church praise band for about 4 years, and it is by far my favorite cymbal. Great when you need a full crash sound without killing everyones ears. Also works great as a crash-ride. Nice full sound even when playing at lower volumes.

Great Sound, Poor Quality

Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is a great addition 2 any setup. It adds a very smooth trashiness that you don't get from an ozone. But the this cymbal won't take the abuse the an ozone will take. This is totally different from an ozone so don't buy this if you want an ozone. Take it from me it won't last!!!!!!!!

Good Cymbal, Does not sound like a crash

By Marc Stauffer

Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

This is a good sounding cymbal but make sure it is what you are looking for. It sounds pretty dark and has a very long overtone structure. The over tones really won't cut through a loud live performance, but I am going to be using this to record with so I really didn't want that much mud.
If you are looking for something between a crash & a large china-this would be perfect.
Don't order it as a possible replacement for your 19" A custom crash.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

i love this cymbal so far its a nice high and crisp sound and decays fast so you don't drown out everything else in the band. its a real thin cymbal so i don't know bout how long it will last but other than that its great and im going to pick up the 18inch now

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

      This adds are really cool mix when played like a small china or when paired with a snare hit. The 14 sounds really good accompanied with my K Hybrids/A Customs. I'm not a power hitter by any means but I would SERIOUSLY make sure to devote your attention to hitting the smaller 14' between the long ports. Not only will it give you a beefier explosion off the crash but it will make it last a lot longer. That or get the protection plan on it and just get after it. That's what I did and I had to get my replaced after a year or so.

            Couldn't have anything smaller than the 20" EFX. Big/bright/bold sound. Will never let this Zildjian go! Go w/the 20", a bit steep in price but save your money.

            I've had this Zildjian EFX 14" crash cymbal before I had an income hickup. Now that it's back with my set-up, It truly was a serious missing element. This EFX is very diverse with just about all percussion sounds you can throw at it!

            from stl, MO

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            this crash is a beast. it looks amazing and souds even better. it does crack easily but mine were and still r very minor. but i play rele hard so it mite just b cuz i used it as my main crash and thrashed it lol. I actually bought some factory metal percussion effects shapnel and put it thru the holes and it gave it a rele erie jingle effect. this cymbal is a beast. BUY IT!

            Got a good deal on the 16" & really enjoy the short sustain & china-like trashiness! Thinking about getting the 18", almost could replace a china with it... Be careful though, very thin!

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            This cymbal has a great sound to it. It sounds almost like a light china with a Zidjian bite to it. I would recomend thios cymbal to any drummer. Jut don't use it as a rythm cymbal, I did and it has some micro-cracks at the edges of the punch-outs. It blends well with all the cymbals I play with.

            I purchased the 14 inch EFX cymbal and it is a great addition to my other Zildjians! It has an awesome sound and it really adds a nice touch to any type of music. It is a thin cymbal but, it doesn't take a hard hit to get a big sound out of it. I highly recommend this cymbal ( or any Zildjian)!

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            Highly recommend as a bottom end trash cymbal, I can't imagine what the 20" would be like. Pair the 18" EFX with a 16" EFX if you want 2 different trash sounds.
            First "trash" type cymbal I've owned, and very satisfied. It's a real beast compared to my prior largest A Zildjian 18" Rock Crash. A nice mix of crash and trash sound, very loud, and sustains well.
            A Custom quality, love the finish on the EFX.
            A Customs are pricey, but well worth it for quality and the sound.

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            This is a really good cymbal, I traded my Z Custom crash for this and it was worth it in my opinion. The sound is almost like a bigger china splash, because of it's fast and trashy sound. The 18'' is a really good cymbal and would recommend it to other drummersBut I would also like to say even though I have not done this yet that, this cymbal cracks very easy... the weight in this cymbal is paper thin - the thinest of all cymbal weights, so be careful with this cymbal if you do buy it!
