The Avedis Zildjian Company has announced the introduction of several new models to their highly successful A. Custom in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the original launch of this ground-breaking range. These new models include the innovative new A Custom Fast Crash cymbals available in 14", 15", 16", 17", and 18" sizes.
The A Custom Fast Crashes provide a bright, responsive crash sound with a short decay. These cymbals are specifically designed to offer a quick response with a melodic character and high pitch. The Fast Crash is slightly thinner than the existing A Custom Crash. The A. Custom Fast Crashes also feature new profiles and brand new cup shapes that contribute to their characteristic new sound. Like all A Custom cymbals they feature Zildjian's brilliant finish.
"Without any effort, these new Fast Crashes open and blossom into a high pitched, smooth crash sound with an extremely short decay", said Gregg Stein, Zildjian's Marketing Communications Manager.
Drumming legend Vinnie Colaiuta recently commented, "These new Fast Crashes are even more refined and controlled which is perfect for the studio setting. They are transparent and light, They really complete the A Custom set-up."
Colaiuta, who spearheaded the design and development of the original A Custom range, also lent his unique insight and experience to the development of the new Fast Crashes. The A Custom cymbal range utilizes radical rotary hammering techniques, thin weights and a striking brilliant finish for a crisp, sweet, sophisticated A Zildjian sound.
