OVERVIEW

Professional cymbal with multiple tonal options.

Developed in conjunction with leading drum stylist Akira Jimbo, the Zildjian K Kustom Hybrid Crash cymbal features an innovative brilliant/traditional surface that produces different tones depending on where the cymbal is played for a musical "darkness with brilliance" combination. The inner half features the unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride, while the outer half features the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing. The unlathed section helps control the wash and sustain, making it ideal for recording and live situations.

The relatively thin design of the crash results in a very responsive quality. It opens up quickly but still has the ability to project loudly and cut into dense mixes due to the unlathed bell.

"Maximum versatility is the main idea with the Hybrid series. I worked with Zildjian to design a line of cymbals where brilliance and darkness coexist. I think the sound we came up with sets the new standard for the 21st Century."--Akira Jimbo

FEATURES
  • Developed with Akira Jimbo
  • Unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride on the inner half

Better than a Soundbyte!!

By MindsEye

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

Listen, I spent weeks contemplating what cymbals to buy. When I first began searching I thought I would save money and buy ZHT's( a nice sounding mid-range cymbal itself) and then slowly upgrade to the K's. I play an 11-piece pearl kit and was robbed close to a year ago and they took all they could carry: Korg D3200 recorder, Korg M-5o keyboard workstation and all of my cymbals and pedals. They were sweet enough to leave my kit and wrap-around rack. Anyway, when it come time to make a purchase I went to a local music store to see and hear the Hybrids as I had a feeling they were better than what the soundbytes were portraying. They sounded incredible. Very strong shimmer with a dark wash. The whole line fit that description. I had planned on the 15", 17" 19" crashes and the 9" and 11" splash, but the 15" was a little to high but the 16" was much darker and lower in tone while still sounding like shattered glass. Amazing. The 17", while the undertone(the hum below the wash) was lower than the 16"'s the actual wash or shimmer was higher in tone wich was kind of backwards from what I expected but they sound great together. The 19" has a beutiful depth while still maintaining a shimmer to die for. The wash on these Hybrid,s are insane. These are thin cymbals but they're no fast crash exactly. They have a mild sustain, yet, so musical. I am telling you, you could write a song with these cymbals alone. Now for the Splash, Oh Man these are so sharp they could cut the rest of your cymbals in half. The nine is the embodiment of what a splash can be. The 11" is OUTRAGEOUS, The sharpest splash I have ever heard. So Do I think these are great cymbals? There is a reason why these are the most expensive cymbals Zildjian offer, and as bad as it may hurt to think about laying down that kind of cash for a cymbal, you'll never look back if you do. Two more notes: 1) Although thin, these cymbals have a heavy lathe and that makes for a very reasonably durable cymbal. 2) I am a professional yet I swear by Wuhans Chinas(laugh if you want), and thier Chinas should have a K stamped on them because they couldn't be any more sonically matched. You don't have to be a rookie to appreciate thier Chinas. Take a chance on a 16",18", or 20".

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

I absolutely love the sound of the 19" K Custom Hybrid. Probably my favorite crash ever. I have went through 3 of them though. I bought the warranty and its covered. I play heavy, fast, and aggressive music mostly, but this is a great all around cymbal. A bit high on price but thats any quality music gear.

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    Hands down the best crashes I've ever owned or used! I have the 17" & 18". I don't know what some people are talking about when they say these are too light or chip and crack easily, I hit like a sledgehammer and have no issues at all. I've had these for 6 months and not a single problem, pricey.....but you get what you pay for and these are top quality!!

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE CRASHES!,,I have the 16,17,19 crashes, and the 21" hybrid ride,,, but my 16 & 19 are my "go to", crashes!,,,CLEAN, CRISP, and so many different sounds in each crash depending on where you hit your crash! I also have the 14 1/4" hi-hats,,,,pricey, but worth the money spent! They sound good no matter what kind of music you play, I play country, country gospel, classic rock, and they "PUT OUT" no matter what kind of music I play. BUY THESE YOU WON'T BE SORRY!

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    The 17" Zildjian K Custom Hybrid is an excellent auxillary or primary crash for recording or live performance. Being on the thin side it might not have the unamplified volume for hard rock, metal or punk, but could be used in those situations if an adequate PA is used with a quality overhead microphone. However the benefits of the thin profile and gradual taper and small to medium bell are immediately apparent upon striking the cymbal. The fast attack is soft and almost fuzzy sounding and the quick wash is warm and blends very very well with other K series cymbals, particularly the 16" K Dark Thin Crash, the 18" K Dark Crash, and the 18" K Constantinople crash. I also like it paired with the 12" K Custom Dark Splash. For recording, there are few other cymbals that can deliver this combination of tone attack and decay, it would sound great on pop, rock, jazz, reggae, and recordings of other musical styles. This ia a very nice crash that should provide years of musical enjoyment for nearly all musical styles. I recommend it you you, you won't be disapointed.

    rock without doubt

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    I went to a local drum store to look for a new crash, I went straight to the zildjian section. I had read about these cymbals in modern drummer, but I had no clue how they sounded. I first hit the 19" and it was amazing. Without doubt the best rock crash I ever heard I immidiatly bought it. Then went back for the 17" two weeks later.

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    I use this cymbal with a 19 A custom crash, and a 21 Sweet ride, I think I have found the perfect combo! This cymbal opens up very quickly and shuts up very quickly, but still manages to project so well. Its a bit thin so it may not be good for hard hitters. Great product!!!!!!!

    most versitile rock crash ever!

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    i had heard this cymbal on akira jimbos setup, but didn't know how great they really are. i went to my local music shop expecting to get an sabian aax, but was blown away by the explosion on the 19", an effect that no other cymbal there had. i will be getting the 17" and 15" as soon as i can! i just wish this metal wasn't so overpriced.

    Great Cymbal

    By Zildjian Fanatic

    from Portland, Maine

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    Most definately the greatest crash I've ever heard. I've owned the 17" for a couple weeks now and couldn't be happier. But be warned, these are not the type of cymbals to buy online. There isn't great quality control on K cymbals, some are grand, some are terrible. GO TO YOUR LOCAL DRUM SHOP. Me and a couple of my drumming buddies went to the shop and hit too many cymbals to count before I settled on this one. If you want the best, get this... but honestly, If you want a cymbal that's almost as good, you could buy an A custom for a better price.

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash:

    At first I was excited because they look amazing, and then I played them. Traditionally I played A customs because they were bright but my projection crash rang for days. This cymbal has the amazing response of a lathed cymbal, but the polished part rings like an a custom...very versatile, opens up quickly, has a great wash. Overall, my set wouldn't be the same without BOTH the 17 and the 19.
