Zildjian A Custom 17" Crash Cymbal at a Glance:
    • A refined version of the classic Zildjian sound
    • Cast bronze cymbals for premium tone and projection

A classic sound, but refined
It's tough to top the unmistakable and reliable sound of A Zildjians for almost any playing situation, but the award-winning A Customs are an irresistible alternative. Developed with the assistance of drumming icon Vinnie Colaiuta, A Customs utilize radical rotary hammering techniques, thin to medium weights and a striking Brilliant finish for a crisp, sweet, sophisticated A Zildjian sound. Not too dark, not too bright - cymbals that are just right for modern music.

Cast bronze cymbals for premium tone and projection
A Customs, like all Zildjian cast bronze cymbals, are individually poured and cast from raw molten metal. Each casting is cooled and sorted by weight for each cymbal model. Castings are then put through a complex sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing techniques one-of-a-kind to each cymbal range. Cast bronze cymbals have a rich, full-bodied sound that improves with age. They also have greater projection, clarity, and durability than any other cymbals. Zildjian cast cymbals are made from the Zildjian secret alloy, which is comprised of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver.

Earl, you're an inspiration to everyone who says they never win anything! (Except the Crew here at GearNuts, because we're not ALLOWED to win any of our contests. Sigh.)
