    How long have you use it?
    Ten years

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    In this size at all at the time ...

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    +: Cymbal explosive but very controllable, very nice feel in the hand wand and 1/4 turns his acute but not excessively for its size, pretty mediums. As usual with A Custom can be used for many musical styles. For my part I play Pop / Rock / Funk and the AC did! Metal jazz but I also think given the size and the sound a bit sharp I do not think so. I have his two big sisters 16 and 17 and the marriage of sound is excellent. Personally I'm using it like a big splash for a few accents in rhythmic......

Metal jazz but I also think given the size and the sound a bit sharp I do not think so. I have his two big sisters 16 and 17 and the marriage of sound is excellent. Personally I'm using it like a big splash for a few accents in rhythmic muscular view on good rock songs. But for years I have served as the main crash because I only played in bars and cabarets that requires a relatively low noise level, and the AC was very good! Strength level is indestructible and yet I have a good shot enough physical game! I always use the principal crash in the context of a moderate volume bar when I play and I added a Sabian HHX Studio Crash 14 with a slightly darker tone. The contrast of two is very interesting and HHX is also a great cymbal!
    - Nothing! It's all good!

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    Very good considering the strength and tone!

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    Yes! This is a cymbal favorite that never laché, I love it! I have so many memories ...

    I own a full set of Zildjian A Custom cymbals. I have a 14", 16", 18", and 19". These are the perfect cymbals for pop or rock music. I don't really play much jazz, so I can't really tell you how well they sound for that style of music. These cymbals sound bright and clear, which is better for pop and rock than for any styles of music that require a more dry sound. On the other hand, if you play metal, you probably want to consider cymbals that sound more thrashy. These are clear sounding cymbals.
    These cymbals can definitely cut through a mix, either in a loud live gig, or in the recording studio. I find that they sound best even if you don't hit them too hard. The initial 'hit' or......

These cymbals sound bright and clear, which is better for pop and rock than for any styles of music that require a more dry sound. On the other hand, if you play metal, you probably want to consider cymbals that sound more thrashy. These are clear sounding cymbals.
    These cymbals can definitely cut through a mix, either in a loud live gig, or in the recording studio. I find that they sound best even if you don't hit them too hard. The initial 'hit' or transient of the cymbal is crisp and the sustain is very musical. The overtones of these cymbals sound beautiful. The sustain is not too long either, preventing a mix from being "washed out" by too much cymbal sustain.
    I would definitely buy these cymbals again if something happened to them. I originally started out them 2 crashes (18" and 16") and decided I loved them so much I better get a few more. I use K hi-hits, instead of A Custom. But for crashes and rides, I love the A Customs. I also specially purchased the A Custom 'Fast Crash' cymbals because I like the overtones of the sustain better than the regular A Customs. This is just something to consider when looking at the full range of A Customs.
    These cymbals really are of the highest quality. If you take good care of them, they should last for a very long time, and even improve their sound the more you play them. Compared to the regular Zildjian A series cymbals, the A Customs have a better sustain/overtones and a much smoother initial crash. I find the the regular A series cymbals are very harsh when you initially hit them. I suppose this would work better for certain styles of music, but it is just not for me.

    I'm more focused on the basic sets of Zildjian dark. She still this sound a little vintage. A little too steep for me. But it's my diverse set: My other cymbals: zildjian 16 K, 18 Sabian AAX Xplosion fast crash.
