A Splash Cymbal for a Quick, Colorful Crash

The Zildjian A Custom 8" Splash cymbal delivers a fast, colorful, and short crash sound - adding a very musical tone voice to your cymbal set. As a part of Zildjian's A Custom Series, the Zildjian A Custom 8" Splash provides a tempting alternative to the classic Zildjian voice. The A Series was designed in collaboration with drum icon Vinnie Colaiuta, and manages to find a sweet place between dark and bright, making it the first choice for many top modern drummers. You'll find that unique, colorful voice, in the Zildjian A Custom 8" Splash Cymbal.

Zildjian A Custom 8" Splash 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 employ 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.
