Went toa local music store today and hit every splash they had. This one had the best sound, hands-down. It even sounded better than a Paiste Sig splash in there. I bought it instantly, and have no regrets. Is like a mini crash. Gets in and out quick, with a crisp brightness and none of that metal trashcan sounding crap that is so prevalent in most cymbals. I am thouroughly please.

I got the 6" splash cymbal back in early winter, i've had it for almopst half a year now, and so far, no cracks, no chipping, and it still has the best bright tone to it. I highly recommend it.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

    I have bought several splash cymbals that have not given me what I expect. That bright, sizzling, splash sound with a fairly quick decay. I bought the 10" Custom A and love it. It inspires me when I use it tastefully with all styles of music I play. I plan to purchase the 12" as well.

    this is a cymbal that is great a heavenly splash when i play it i like hittin the splash more then any cymbal but i recommen more of somethin like wuhan because i got the 2 togather then compared a 20.00 wuhan against a zildjian splash they had the same noise the same size but one thing the zildjian had a most lusterous noise more high pitch and a longer decay it`s worth it all

    i just dont know about this cymbal. i wasn't REAL pleased with the sound of this cymbal. don't get me wrong, it's ok, but it wasn't what i was expecting. then again, how good can you make ANY 6 inch cymbal sound? it sounds good for what it is, but it wasn't what i pictured. i would probably buy it again for certain applications, but i will probably stay away from 6 inch splashes altogether, simply because it doesn't fit our sound.

        Nice splash

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        These splashs are very musical. I have a 10 and 12 and I just ordered a 6. Splash cymbals are nice because you don't always want a loud crash, sometimes it sounds a lot better to have a quick splash in quiter sections of music where you want an accent. The different sizes will determine how big that accent is. I had the 10 for a long time and aside from some cosmetic issues, it's still solid and can take a beating. If you crack one of these, that probably means you aren't playing/mounting it right. What's nice about the smaller cymbals is that you can mount them inverted on other cymbals to save space or if you don't have another stand, just make sure to use felts. The 12" sounds more like a small crash than the others.

        10 inch

        By David J Murphy

        from Undisclosed

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

        I've had the 10 inch A custom splash for about 8 or 9 years and it's still going strong. I use it all the time. It has a great high pitched, shimmering sound that doesn't sound ridiculous like all these new breed weirdos ;) who have like 5 tiny splashes that all sound like wind up monkey cymbals. This 10 inch can be used as a tiny crash or as a splash for accents, and is almost as loud as my 14" Saluda Mist X crash (a medium volume crash). It is very cutting but like I said not ridiculous, it actually sounds like a cymbal.

        I've played nothing but Zildjian cymbals for years but I've never had a splash. I bought the 8 inch to add to my kit just for fun and the first time I hit it on stage the entire band turned around and smiled! This is a great little addition that's a lot of fun! Plus...it's a Zildjian!

                I purchased the 6" as this was a need for the artist I started playing for recently. The leaving drummer reported me that this was the splash he used on the CD and for the shows. After I got it I have been practicing with it and had yesterday 7/17/14 my first show with the band. And I couldn't be any happier. It is exactly as I expected, and what I expected. Explosive, bright and very cutting. Great little splash, proabably best money I ever spend. Love it.....

                    Ordered these after playing a mixed set of Soultones. The Soultone Cymbals are very well constructed but not well rounded as far as sound is concerned.
                    I have always wanted a set of A Custom's and decided to jump on these. Great buy for the money although I wish the 18" crash was a little brighter.

                      as the title says one of the best money can buy i own a 6,8,10 and 12" a custom splashes, 6" is a nice tinkle for add in's 8 and 10" cut through music with distinctive sounds, 12" is most powerful but more along the crash line instead of splash but goes perfect with a 14" a custom crash bottom line if your looking for the perfect splash go with 10" if your wanting to spice it up a little go with the other sizes.

                      I have been looking for a splash for along time and I ran across this at a local music store the other day. I bought it and I would buy it again in an instant. I have the 6" version and it is incredible. I play metal so I am always looking for an alternative time keeper to a ride or hat and I had hopes for this. It did not quite meet expectations there but I am still using it for accents and in combination with other cymbals. Over all a great cymbal not for everyone though.

                      Oh my. I got that 8" bad boy, and it was money well spent. I replaced my ZXT splash which i totally broke over the course of a year or two. But that's beside the point. This cymbal was everything i would ever want in a splash. It's what every other splash dreams of becoming. After like a minute of adjusting to the sound this cymbal fit in so well with my set. It's so versatile. It's so beastly. You heard the sound clip. You know you love it.
