      Made for the heavy rock environment.

      The Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal was developed in response to requests for the heavier, louder volume needed in rock settings. The Zildjian Sound Lab created the Projection series cymbals with the assistance of Vinnie Colaiuta. Zildjian A Custom cymbals are made using radical rotary hammering techniques, thin weights, and a striking, brilliant finish.

      Great cymbals, but BEWARE. HARD HITTERS ONLY. There's a reason why Lars Ulrich and not many others use these. Anything less than a full stroke, and the cymbals don't make much of a noise. That said, hit them hard enough and they explode. Bright, cutting, and powerful. They will fulfill rock and metal needs of any kind, but don't put them on a jazz set and expect the type of performance you want.

      i play zildjians exclusevly and always have since my first ride 10 yrs ago and im extremly picky but i recently bought a 16 inch custom projection crash and it sounds good and all but it is not loud enough! i cannot be heard with all of my other cymbals it sounds ok but not as good as i expect these to be. i however own an 18 inch custom projection crash and it's the best i've ever played (my opinion) and i give that 10 stars easy! and the 16 inch cant keep up with it period!. is this a defect or what but i plan on selling it or returing it !!!!

      Projection schmecktion!

      By Lawson Smith

      from california

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      The word projection should not have been used to describe this cymbal. Yes it sounds good it's a zildjian A custom. Does it project through loud heavy music? NO! NO it doesn't. Bring back the Zildjian A rock crash it did the job! Very disappointed in this poorly named cymbal.

      16" A custom projection crash cymbal

      By Me-Dvcey

      from Windom Mn

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal is awesome. I got this cymbal and loved it and it sounds awesome. I really like it. One thing to be careful of is that you have to take good care of it so it stays clean touching it will leave finger prints if you touch it you should touch it on the sides.

      Zildjian A Custom Projection 18"

      By Eli Ruben

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      WOW! This cymbal is a stunner! I bought mine used, but it looks and sounds new! This cymbal cuts through all my other cymbals (even my Wuhan china (WOW)) and its just so bright and awesome you would be a fool not to buy it! i have the 18" and i love it to death!

      its a wee bit expensive new, so i would suggest looking for a used one. but WHAT A CYMBAL!X

      Mine cracked on the 13th month

      By Ed-1blV0

      from florida

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      The cymbal sounds great if you hit it hard. If you tap it you don't get much of a sound which is understood. I have 4 of these on my kit and one of my two 18's cracked the other day. The cymbal was set up properly and hit properly with wooden 2B sticks. I's shocked it cracked! We'll see if Zildjian warranties it. I'll post back

      Love the tone

      By kylewagoner

      from Fort Ashby, WV

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      This is kind of my main crash. Not like the crash I hit on beat one, but the one I use if I'm playing quarter notes. Freaking great resonance. Great tone. It's really good for my style of music. I'd say that A Customs are made more for rock and things of that sort and not for jazz...as it's probably well-known. I got the 17". Love it.

      Two different kinds of Projection Crashes

      By ZILDJIANS-rule-21

      from Montreal, QC

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal is great, I have the 17, and the 18... the 17 is a bit older, and has a different bell then the 18, and it's louder then the 18 - the 18 has a cup sized bell kind of like a ride which makes it higher pitched, and the 17 has almost a flatter bell, making it a bit darker but still very loud. I think the older projection models have the 'flatter bell', and the newer ones have the round ones, if I could choose I would have the flatter bell, but I'm happy with both

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      IT Rocks! I got it used in 2005. I beat the crap out of it at live shows and in the studio. She's all scuffed up but still sounds like the day I got her. Also the bell sounds awesome and it cab be a light ride.

      By Laundryman

      from Iowa City, IA

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      I bought the 16" back in March '09, and have been in love since. Amazing. It cuts through with a beautiful, powerful tone, yet can be played softly, as well. It shimmers like glass. As far as I'm concerned, too, you can't beat the look of the A Customs with their brilliant finish, especially under lights. Highly recommended!

      Amazing

      By Nick-tEjQg

      from New York City, NY

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash Cymbal:

      Just got the 18 inch one. Let me tell you, it is amazing. Takes about two days to break the cymbal in to get that really nice sound. You will not be dissapointed. This cymbal really cuts through the mix and will sound great with a full band. Get this.
