Trashy crash cymbal
Robadope, 18.12.2018
Very nice trashy sounding crash cymbal. I already have the 18" A Custom EFX which is one of the favorites in my set up.
I often use the 16" stacked on top of a 16" oriental trash. Lately I'm using it in my percussion set up.

Zildjian A Custom EFX | Crashy, Trashy yet very very smooth
Thomas7957, 10.02.2015
This cymbal is a perfect hybrid solution to a crash cymbal crossed with a china. With that, you benefit from the trashier side of the china, mixed in with the warm wash of a crash cymbal, which all works out rather well indeed.

This is a particularly smooth cymbal. The attack is progressive, leaving the decay & sustain, to just work accordingly.

What is really nice about this A Custom EFX 16" is that you can touch the cymbal very softly and still get a lovely understated shine as a response... in other words, you can use this at a very low level. That in itself is a plus over a china.
In addition, add a 6"/8" splash on the top, and you have yourself a pretty tasty stack!

Lovely cymbal. 100% Recommended.

Ein sehr schönes Effektbecken
Sebastian H. 632, 05.11.2012
der Sound des 16" A- Custom EFX ist eine Mischung aus China und Crash.

Vor allem das kurze Sustain, das auf die Löcher zurückzuführen ist, hat mich sehr überzeugt, weil ich in meinem Spiel sehr gerne kurze Akzente setze, für die dieses Becken perfekt geeignet ist.
Das soll natürlich nicht heißen, dass es ein reines Effektbecken ist. Auch als Hauptcrash kann man es sehr gut für jeden Stil verwenden.

Ein weiterer positiver Effekt ist das Anschlagsgefühl. Ich kann es zwar nicht richtig erklären, aber wenn man es anschlägt, fühlt es sich so an als hätte es weniger Widerstand an als ein "normales" Becken (kommt bestimmt von den Löchern), was mir persönlich sehr gut gefällt, weil man nicht gleich das Gefühl hat, es kaputtzumachen ;)

Zur Verarbeitung lässt sich sagen, dass es die gewohnte Qualität von Zildjian ist.
Die Löcher sind sauber ausgeschnitten und auch sonst sind keine Fehler zu entdecken.

Zum Abschluss lässt sich sagen:
guter Preis + sehr guter Klang = Kaufen

outch
Fabrice Z., 18.05.2011
un son rock qui déchire tout.un son court ,qui laisse la place a la prochaine pèche,pour du gros mais bon son...j aurais toutefois choisis une 18" si le catalogue l avais proposé.mettez un overhead dessus et go ! cette nouvelle gamme reste peut abordable ,mais le jeu en vaut la chandelle..
