          Every drummer has their go to cymbal and this is mine. Considering I have k dark cymbals as part of my kit this is a great compliment. If you need a light (not too light) fast crash this is the cymbal for you.

                              if it says a custom on it, you cant go wrong. this is absolutely the best sounding fast crash i've ever played in my life, and i've played thousands of cymbals. you won't be disappointed with this purchase, as long as you're expecting it to be a fast crash. don't expect a long decay or heavy volume out of a cymbal that's not designed for that, or you will be disappointed. for what it's for, it's the best sounding fast crash on the market. would purchase again and again!

                              I love the complete line of Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash cymbals I have a 4 of them on my kit, very versatile cymbal, not to loud for small venues and not overpowering when using overheads microphones. I originally purchased my 17" 6 years ago and just had to repurchase because it had 2 small cracks on the side and eventually a 1 inch chunk feel out. But I beat the heck out of this cymbal and ride it like a heavy metal monster so I'm not complaining and it is a fast crash and those are a bit thinner, but they sound GREAT.

                                A Custom Fast Crash

                                Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

                                The Fast Crash looks pretty frail upon first examination. It's thin and it bends. Don't let that fool you. It will take a beating! I've had my 16" A Custom Fast Crash for 5 or 6 years. It is probably the most abused cymbal on my drum kit. It is hit often and hard. Only 6 months ago did 1mm cracks start appearing on the edge. First, one, then a few, and now, many. Too many. I'm here today to replace it. I have nothing bad to say about this cymbal. It took a beating and probably could take some more, but it is getting flat sounding. I most definitely got my money's worth from this cymbal. I play 4 and 5 sets of Rock 2 nights a week. A hobbyist or a lighter hitter could probably get double the years out of it than I did. As far as the sound, it's an A Custom, it's thin, it sounds fantastic! Once you get over how thin it is, you will never be sorry you bought it once you hear it.

                                18" A custom fast crash- AWESOME

                                Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

                                I love the whole A custom line, either the best or one of the best anywhere.
                                you get what you ask for. No more, no less, which is an awesome cymbal
                                the sound really bites. It can be played at virtually any volume, and I don't expect it to even scratch for a long time ( I'm a hard hitter)
                                it is a tad expensive, but its really worth it.
