          Good Cymbal, Does not sound like a crash

          By Marc Stauffer

          from Northern VA (Washington DC)

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

          This is a good sounding cymbal but make sure it is what you are looking for. It sounds pretty dark and has a very long overtone structure. The over tones really won't cut through a loud live performance, but I am going to be using this to record with so I really didn't want that much mud.
          If you are looking for something between a crash & a large china-this would be perfect.
          Don't order it as a possible replacement for your 19" A custom crash.

            Couldn't have anything smaller than the 20" EFX. Big/bright/bold sound. Will never let this Zildjian go! Go w/the 20", a bit steep in price but save your money.

            I've had this Zildjian EFX 14" crash cymbal before I had an income hickup. Now that it's back with my set-up, It truly was a serious missing element. This EFX is very diverse with just about all percussion sounds you can throw at it!

            I've been using the 16" in our church praise band for about 4 years, and it is by far my favorite cymbal. Great when you need a full crash sound without killing everyones ears. Also works great as a crash-ride. Nice full sound even when playing at lower volumes.

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            I purchased the 14 inch EFX cymbal and it is a great addition to my other Zildjians! It has an awesome sound and it really adds a nice touch to any type of music. It is a thin cymbal but, it doesn't take a hard hit to get a big sound out of it. I highly recommend this cymbal ( or any Zildjian)!

            Release the Krakken!

            By John Matuszek

            from Dallas, TX

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            Highly recommend as a bottom end trash cymbal, I can't imagine what the 20" would be like. Pair the 18" EFX with a 16" EFX if you want 2 different trash sounds.
            First "trash" type cymbal I've owned, and very satisfied. It's a real beast compared to my prior largest A Zildjian 18" Rock Crash. A nice mix of crash and trash sound, very loud, and sustains well.
            A Custom quality, love the finish on the EFX.
            A Customs are pricey, but well worth it for quality and the sound.

            Great Sound, Poor Quality

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            This cymbal is a great addition 2 any setup. It adds a very smooth trashiness that you don't get from an ozone. But the this cymbal won't take the abuse the an ozone will take. This is totally different from an ozone so don't buy this if you want an ozone. Take it from me it won't last!!!!!!!!

            Comments about Zildjian A Custom EFX Crash Cymbal:

            Got a good deal on the 16" & really enjoy the short sustain & china-like trashiness! Thinking about getting the 18", almost could replace a china with it... Be careful though, very thin!
