I used to play heavy rock using louder cymbals "Z Heavy 18"" before, but "A-Custom crash" 16" is a poetry in its range. Now I am more focused on sound and A-Custom is perfect. Not only sounds beautiful (B20 alloy), but also makes huge impression visually.
Nothing cuts through the mix, in my opinion, quite like A Customs. This Crash strikes a balance between meaty attack with a bright clarity, and a warm decay that keeps swells ringing out, and will keep an audience's attention.
Crash's are for punctuating a phrase or to help make a point, which this crash absolutely nails with class.
