Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
(Originally written by pyj56/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

I've owned it for 9 years. Wonderful crash cymbal. I find it sounds better with aging.
Very fast response at every volume. Same quality no matter if you are playing soft or hard (if you know how to hit a cymbal correctly).

Its brilliance and versatility allow you to play every single music style... Furthermore the A custom Series looks very nice (but you have to watch out for finger marks!)

This high-quality cymbals are not cheap but I would buy them again without hesitation. I actually own several A custom cymbals already.

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
How long have you use it?
Ten years

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
It was my first crash that my father gave me. He preferred something more Dark (K Custom), which is not my case. Thank you Dad!

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+: Cymbal very reactive under the baton, its versatile, neither too bright nor too dark sound level, the beautiful harmony medium that emerges just after the strike. I play Rock / Funk / Pop is perfect for that! I think in a more muscular metal type ca context should also do very well! Jazz, I have a question though ... Better preferred something more Dark in my opinion. I also have two other A Custom Crash 16 and 14 which go very well with.
-: A small keyhole was formed 5 years ago of that ... But this is a cymbal that I play a lot makes sense. Moreover it has not moved since! Other cymbals that I had were less strong ...!

How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good! Better than many high-end model! Sounds and it's tough!

With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes! The sound of the crash A Custom I like and I'm not about to change his mind on!

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
I've had two weeks and frankly I'm glad. Before I was a Planet Z and I also played a paiste (a 802) and saw the difference immediately.
At first I wanted a rock and Z Khan I compared the two at the store I jumped immediately on the A.
It has a good resonance, it shines and is very versatile.
I paid 175 euros and frankly it's worth it.
I do it again but this choice may be in 17 'or 18'.

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
Sublime!
quality versatility, brilliance ...
a reasonable volume, it sparkles like crystal
a volume lev it flies! without losing its CONTRL, she sings!
cymbal fits any style!
careful though, I have a Z custom rock crash 18 "and when I play the volume lev A custom is recessed power level.

Super cymbal, trs versatile
I think it is suitable for all styles ...

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
I have a Zildjian A custom 16 "and 14 "....... TRS good cymbals in my opinion (I have tried many ....).
Certainly not as powerful or as strong as the Z. ..... but Polivalente trs. We can not really go wrong by buying A custom.

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
I have used only once and I'm dj crazy ... (I play pop rock and Integrates perfectly, but of course it can be used to lots of different style, go Zildjian.com to see artists who use it)

the sound is bright but without the cot too bright and too sharp to Z custom, and at the same time (personal opinion) I find it hot. The sustain is long enough.

The advantage is that it is well equilibrated (not too strong nor too weak) it is for me a great quality for a crash.Aussi it is not "hard" when you type.
In addition it can be "drivquot, very easy, and it is prcise rpond instantanment the slightest change in type.

quality for price ratio is hard to judge I bought OCCAZ for 130 euros (just over half the price according to baguetterie.com) and personally I do not metterai 240 euros in a cymbal when you can have a half price of OCCAZ and in perfect state.

In conclusion, I would say it's a good trs crash and you can buy it eyes closed for those who are not sure what cymbal invest and / or that can not be formed dplacer to try a bunch of cymbals

And for those that I can not convince, tell yourself that even if you do not like you can sell it very easy!

Zildjian A Custom Crash 16''
My having been around 2 years, I think I twisted in concert ... Maybe it has to grsille many, it is very invasive!
I have been offered without knowing what it was worth, but I think CalitPrix, was not worth it ...
