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 unique 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.

Zildjian A Custom 17" Crash Cymbal Features:
  • Cast bronze crash cymbal

My favorite cymbal

First and foremost, no two cymbals are going to be exactly alike. I have had two different A-custom 17" cymbals and I distinctly love one more than the other. However, this is probably my favorite cymbal overall. Perfect size and a crash sound that can fit in almost anywhere. I have the 6",8",16",18",22" A-Customs and for the type of music I use them for, they are fantastic cymbals. They have a brighter sound than some may like, but they are definitely quality and once you get them broken in they are fantastic.
