      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 8 inch splash and when it came it was the worst sounding thing I have ever heard. I returned it right away. There was no ring to it. It sounded like I was hitting a hunk of tin, very little musical quality.

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom Splash Cymbal:

            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.

                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.

                  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 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.
