MGR/Mike D's review"Zildjian 16" Z-Custom Rock Crash"

Zildjian Z Custom Rock Crash 16''
I bought this cymbal to replace a cheeper 16" Paiste 302 crash. I got it at Guitar Center in Buffalo NY for $160 (new). Lately I've seen them on sale for about $150.

This Cymbal is extra loud with a nice cutting sound. It's great for any rock, heavy metal, or alternative music. The thing I like best about this cymbal is the duribility. It will last years under heavy hitting and not crack. The bell has a very nice ping sound which could be used for affects.

Many other reviews for Z Custom cymbals have said that stick marks show very easily. This shouldn't be a problem since most drummers don't hit crashes with the tip of the stick. Fingerprints show very easily and the cymbal needs to be cleaned once a month to keep it in good condition.

It is a very high quality cymbal, with almost no defects. The brillant finish gives your set a stunning visuial effect under bright light.

This cymbal is a quality cymbal that can take lots of abuse. It's extra loud and will cut through any band. I would consider this a sound investment for any drummer.

samara's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good crash, but preferred version "medium""

Zildjian Z Custom Rock Crash 16''
Also one of my first crashes. Strength level have is on durable. Meanwhile, I admit I was a little disappointed, the medium have been I think a more interesting warmer sound. This one to actually sound a little too "metallic" therefore really useful in "fishing". However if you find cheap please!

I use it for 1 year
This cymbal is clearly intended to rock and mtal (finally drummers who not hit those pats on triggue ed), it is very grazing and therefore it must be hitting hard to see very strong.
I admit I made a few months to get used to. The rest of my set is composed of a custom projection and the record is actually quite COMPLEMENTARY.
cymbal is a very strong therefore the ratio quality price is right, but if I had the choice again I would look into an opportunity for these same reason.

I use it for a year and I bought it because I was looking for a cymbal sound and power and I find all this in the Zildjian Cymbal. If you play jazz or other soft music that does not crash you should probably not but it is perfect for the metal or rock! The price is right being given the quality of this cymbal and I do not regret my choice.

Just to put a small problem with the opinion just below, I have the older version of the cymbal (Zildjian before ke do decide to review its manufacturing).

I had the opportunity to play the new version is actually very musical, very rigid and not very pleasant and diversified under the baton.

The opposite of the old version actually! Ke that I have not the same hammering and the cymbal itself is thinner than the new version.

6 years I owned and the sound has not moved a pet fly! I had the great martyr at certain times and in certain contexts, it has always given me satisfaction and pleasure. Moreover, I changed bcp cymbals but it has always been ...

So its side, it has the power of A Custom brilliance but rather to fly, is closer to that of a K Custom! The top is that this is a very musical cymable but also very strong! This also differentiates the strength of a K Dark Crash since obviously, it must hit a little harder to give it its full potential.

I use it in many contexts, especially on stage to play rock, fusion, hardcore, funk, psyche and even music for jazz (not Acoustik though)!

To summarize: be careful I think applies to describe the illustrious old version of this cymbal much better than the current pitiful!

To note, I therefore put a damper against the heart to punish Zildjian, ki sacrificed the sound of the old version to sell to big hitters ... shame!

Zildjian Z Custom Rock Crash 16''
Then for a crash cymbal called Rock, it is not a crash!! We could call pong cymbal! I've never seen (or heard plutt) a crash so dull. And besides it is so hard it breaks for no reason ... prfrez him the Z medium crash!
