OVERVIEW

A great crash for moderate cash!

The Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash is a highly sensitive crash with an exceptionally quick response. The high-end pitch of this cymbal sounds quickly and then rapidly fades. Its crisp, sweet sound is the perfect accent in a wide range of music. Developed with Vinnie Colaiuta, this cymbal uses thin weights and radical hammering techniques to optimize this crash' sound. As a result of careful craftsmanship, this A Custom Fast Crash is a responsive cymbal with a bright, sophisticated sound.

18" A custom fast crash- AWESOME

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 Read complete review

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.

Dont understand zildjian. I have an earlier review on here about a 16 inch A custom fast crash were I say it is my go to cymbal. So I decided to buy an 18 inch A custom fast crash. I figured it would be a great compliment to my 16 inch. It sounded horrible. Like hitting a thick pie pan. How can a 16 and 18 inch be that much different? Sent it back and got a 16 inch A custom and I noticed it was completely different than the 17 inch A custom I already have. Very dissatisfied with zildjian as a whole. I feel the only safe way to buy cymbals is where you can hit them and hear them hand's on. When you spend that much on cymbals ypu expect quality and consistency and with Zildjian apparently you dont know what you will get from one batch to the next.

      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!

              Comments about Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash:

              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.
