MAAAN, I have owned this cymbal for over a year, put it through the toughest metal jams, the hardest riffs and the most all around abuse you could give a cymbal, and it still rocks. Perfectly bright tone, cuts through all the other crashes I have ever played, the decay is quick, making it sound very powerful, all in all its a 10 on my list, I've never had anything but compliments on its tone and it is by far one of the best K's I have ever thrashed and bashed, anyways, if you want a fast crash the will dominate (with proper care of course), this is the one for you!

Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash sounds great though it can't project too much for louder volume. Versatile cymbal and great for short accents.Dark sounding with nice amount of shimmer. Sounds better than A Custom Fast crash and A Zildjian crashes. Great choice for those with enough budget. Just be careful not to hit too hard, it's a bit thinner than regular thin crash.

A beautiful noise

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

This is the besst crash I have ever used. The 18" fills the room with great body and then goes away. If there were a perfect crash, this is it.

Nothing Better

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I got this cymbal for my set and was very impressed when i first got it. As the time went by it kept sounding better and better to the point where all my other cymbals sound bad in comparison. The quality is great because I play heavy metal and hit pretty hard, but it has yet to dent, ding, or crack.

Nothing better

By Zildjian Hater

from LA CA

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

Watch out! K Custom Fast's will make all your other cymbals sound cheap by comparison. Naturally thin in weight, these cymbals are the 'ones' if your playing smaller rooms or have a good mic'ing situation (Dennis Chambers uses these), their tone/sound cannot be equaled. Nothing sounds as magically superb as K Customs.

fantastic cymbal

By IenjoyTamaDrums

from Fullerton, CA

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I recently bought the 17" crash and I can say little bad about it. For one, it looks awesome, and it sounds better than it looks. Great warm and bright sound with soft complimenting overtones. I would recomend this cymbal to anyone who is very serious about drumming; it's not the cheapest cymbal in the world, but well worth it.

A great crash

By david-0Pasi

from Austin, TX

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

This is a great crash for most any purpose. Very complex, dark, a smidge trashy, with a fast decay. This is not a bashing cymbal and is best played with finesse rather than hard hitting.

woah

By Titanium0

from Saginaw, MI

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I have played with almost every zildjian cymbal out there, and in the crash section, this one takes the cake! I LOVE it!! It fits well with every style of music i play. It has a quick decay time, and my 14" is very bright and fits amazingly well in the sound of any other type of cymbal. This is most definitely my favorite cymbal.

I really can't say any thing bad about this

By Yourmom366

from State College, Pennsylvania

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I have had this for about 3 months now. I love it. I did a Cd with it and it sounds just beautiful on the recordings. It gives a sweet crash sound but not so loud that it drowns any thing out. If you really want it to stand out I think you'll have to blend it with something else, thats what I do anyways. But its a fast crash so you shouldn't expect it to produce a big sound on its own. But this is a great addition to any set. It's perfect for blending it in to the music but still having it be heard.

Amazing

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 18" fast over a year ago.The best cymbal I have ever bought/heard for crashes.It sounds very good to the drummers and amazing on recording/audience.The bell you can hit adn doesn't sound bad at all but the crash part is amazing.It can cut through everything.Can you for any style of music.Although I wouldn't recommend using it for strictly crash riding.You can use a ride though.Has a bright crisp fast sound.You don't need to dampen it at the end of a sound or anything.I just played to hard on it and cracked on the edge but it is turning back out so a piece will just be missing but still sounds great with the crack.

Great All-Purpose Crash

By holla at allah

from Elk River, MN

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

I own the 14" and I love it. It blends perfectly with my larger darker Ks, providing a much needed accent of brightness while maintaining a similar tone to other Ks. I would recommend these to anyone who uses Ks, just for blending. These crashes provide the warmth associated with the K line while maintaining their brightness and quick attack and decay. Overall these are very good cymbals.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

Great tone and got it at a great price. It is well worth the money. Very musical with very fast decay. Good when you want to crash in and out real quick. I would recommend this cymbal to anyone that wants a versitile crash that is musical, but yet decays fast.

    These cymbals are SUPER dark and they have that "explosion" sound when struck. Adds a nice contrast if you have a set of bright cymbals.

    How a Crash Cymbal should sound

    from NYC

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Fast Crash Cymbal:

    I tried this cymbal a couple of months ago when a friend got it, and I immediately fell in love with it. I also have the 17' A Custom Projection Crash, and all my other cymbals are A Custom, except for my China which is the Oriental China Trash. The 17' K Custom Fast Crash, added the crisp and detailed sound I was looking for. It sounds good if you hit light or heavy... Now my A Customs are starting to sound a little pathetic :P
