I originally bought this 6" cymbal by accident. I meant to purchase an A Custom 6" splash. This splash is very paper thin as mentioned. Very good sound quality from this cymbal. Great for accents. But the only problem is if you're a heavy hitter like me (I'm in a Heavy Metal band) this cymbal will only endure so much. I've purchased this twice & it's already starting to crack again on the outer edge. This is a great cymbal for softer played music. But NOT FOR METAL!

i have used zildjian 'a' series cymbals my whole life and career. i don't use zildjian as much since i have been using 'wuhan' cymbals for many years. i use the new A' series zildjian cymbals along with wuhan cymbals. i like to collect cymbals. i needed 2 zildjian splashes to complete my collection. i had no desire to use these cymbals. i recently ordered an 'A' series zildjian 6 inch splash and 'A' series zildjian 12 inch splash.
i don't like them. i wasn't gonna return them, because i wasn't gonna play them. i was first disappointed in the 12 inch splash becuase it sounds like the discontinued 'a' series splash. why hasn't zildjian changed it a little bit some way to still sound good, and be a better product? it doesn't sound bad, it just isn't any better than the other zildjian 12 inch splashes that i own. secondly, the 6 inch splash is terrible.. i would rather play my fathers' old metal ashtrays. i have heard pots and pans sound better. this is why i have been using wuhan cymbals.i have talked to other drummers, and they agree with my issues. this is just my opinion, but i would not recommend zildjian cymbals. the 'NEW TRADITIONAL' wuhan cymbals are so much better than zildjian. i compare my wuhans to my zildjians, and my new zildjian 'A' series cymbals do not sound as good.

Amazing cymbal!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

This is one amazing cymbal! I would have never landed on it until my school was throwing it away. (I know, right?!) So they gave it to me and I have been using it ever since!

This is one incredible little cymbal! I use it regularly and it takes quite a beating! The Sounds are beautiful when used for quick accents in-between rolls and particularly with my style of music. My band mates love it and it?s a worthwhile buy!

I have an 8" Advedis Extra Thin Splash, and it's PERFECT. The perfect splash. A thin breathy wash every hit, with instant decay. Thumbs up!

I got this for a just because present about 4yrs ago and I will not let this splash go. I've used Zildjian products before, and now I have their competitors products, but this splash stays with me regardless of what cymbals I am using. GET IT, GET IT NOW!!!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

It was my pride and joy for about 8months. I got it and some paiste cymbal for my birthday. But after 8months or so, the dome went cracking. When I noticed it first, it wasn't bad but soon got worse. Every 8 hits or so it wud stink. But now, a month later it just dies... I purchased a new splash but this one had its time and by far is worth the money. Lasted me a descent time beating the hell out of it. Good buy, don't expect it for ever

awesome splash

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

This cymbal is by far my favorite cymbal I've ever used! I use the 12" at church and it is beautiful for builds, mini crashes and works well with a lighter sounding cymbal if you want to roll on it and then hit the lighter one (like the 12" sabian b8 we have). This is also a very durable cymbal as I use it more frequently than anything else besides my hi-hat.I love it and I want one for my home kit!

Very Good ZILDJIAN!

By L1Br@d0

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I recently purchased the 8" splash and I had my doubts about this because it looks kind of dull so, I thought it would have a 'dark' sound to it. I was very wrong! This thing almost sounds as good as my 8" Paiste Signature Splash (which by the way, I LOVE!!!) This splash even sounds better than the Zidjian A Custom 8" Splash. Sabian has decent splashes but I'd stick to the high-end quality cymbals instead. Price shouldn't keep you from enjoying the sound you've been yearning for. Buy this splash!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I recently purchased the Zildjian splash. It has added great sound to my drumset. It has a very good loud crisp sound and decays very fast I enjoy playing during solos during shows.

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I use the 10" splash and I love it. It was the perfect choice for me. It has a good volume, pitch, and sustain so its doesn't lose momentum during high energy situations.

Classic Splash

By Monday317

from Pittsburgh, PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

Every now and then, I get to play Ragtime, or Dixieland, and to do that right, you gotta have a splash. I wanted a nice, trashy, high, '20s sound, and I knew it had to be a Zildjian A. Got lucky, and got a floor model 10" for a good price, and it's precisely the sound yop want for a splash. Most of us will have the right sound in mind, either from watching The Three Stooges, or listening to old Bix Biederbeck records, but you know the sound. Well the A Splashes deliver! So stop fiddling with all that other crapola, but an A Splash, and get playing willya?!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

this is a great splash. i own the 6 in and the 10 in. i only use the 10 in in my band and it is amazing. its not too loud but loud enough for the spots where its needed. i dont use the 6 in in my band because we dont do many effectsy type stuff. but it is great for tool or slipknot sounding effects. i use it at home on my practice set in place of the 10 in.

Last January I purchased the 8 inch splash and to say the least, I'm not disappointed. It's got a short, smooth splash sound that could soothe even the most savage Animal (the drumming Muppet after whom I was nicknamed).

splashin'

By Dan Tha Man

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I got the 8" version of this splash for free about 2 years ago from one of my friends that didn't want it anymore. My only complaint is that the only time you can really use it is in a soft chorus or verse with the hi-hats closed. I've hammered it continuosly and yet to have a crack out of it. Overall, another good zildian product.

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I own the 10" and play a lot of blues and soft/classic rock and I also jam a lot with my mates. This little thing is perfect for accents. It cuts through the mix just right and has a lovely mellow tone which just seems to fit in perfect with whatever I play. Go Zildjian!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Splash Cymbal:

I just got a 8" version and well, it's what a splash should be. Short, bright, musical. The 10" version is a bit louder though, so if you want that traditional sound get the 8. A fun addition to any kit for any style. They are getting a bit expensive though..
