Play the greatest name in cymbals.

The A Custom crash from Zildjian is a high-performance cymbal born of radical innovation and crafted with care. Developed with input from world-renowned drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, A Custom cymbals utilize precision tapered hammering techniques to produce thinner bowls and more complex tones. The brilliant finish enhances clarity and projection, allowing this cymbal to shine through in live performances and studio recordings.

Thinner Cymbal Bows Generate Crisp Articulation

Zildjan A Custom crash cymbals feature radically tapered hammering that produces thinner bows, resulting in a crisp, articulate tone with plenty of sustain. The thinner metal vibrates more freely, generating complex overtones and a sophisticated sound suitable for any musical style. Despite their thin weights, A Custom Crashes are durable and versatile, capable of handling the demands of touring drummers and session players alike.

Brilliant Finish Provides Tonal Clarity and Projection

The brilliant finish of the Zildjan A Custom crash allows its full tonal spectrum to shine through with clarity and projection. The polished surface enhances articulation and sustain, ensuring this cymbal cuts through live mixes and studio recordings. Its energetic yet refined sound is ideal for drummers looking to make a statement without overpowering other instruments.

Developed with Legendary Drummer Vinnie Colaiuta

Zildjian developed the A Custom series in collaboration with world-renowned drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, known for his work with Frank Zappa, Sting and Jeff Beck. Colaiuta's expertise and artistry as a drummer helped shape the versatile, musical quality of A Custom crashes, producing cymbals that serve the creative needs of professionals and inspire developing players.

A Timeless Classic for Modern Music

The A Custom Crash carries on Zildjian's legacy of handcrafted cymbal excellence with a contemporary voice. Since 1623, Zildjian has pushed the boundaries of cymbal making and the A Custom series represents the leading edge of modern innovation. With a sophisticated yet energetic tone, the precision-hammered A Custom crash is a timeless classic ready to drive the beat in today's music.
