The design of the A Zildjian Flash Splash features two distinct finishes that allow for a bright splash sound with dynamic sensitivity. Developed in conjunction with world renowned drummer/educator Peter Erskine, these splashes emit a full-bodied sound with slightly longer sustain than standard splashes. A synergy is created between the thicker bell area and the thin outer edge, providing sustain with shimmering musicality. The unlathed bell has been highly polished, which enhances its bright tone color. The cymbal responds from the lightest touch to more aggressive strikes without losing its distinct tonality.
Sweeten your drum kit with this Zildjian A Custom Box Set. The A Custom Box Set includes a set of 14″ A Custom Hi-hats, a 16″ A Custom Crash, and a 20″ A Custom Medium Ride cymbal standard. But that’s not all, this A Custom Box Set includes a bonus 18″ A Custom Crash, giving you an even wider range of expression for a great low price. Cast from Zildjian’s world-famous secret alloy, these cymbals blossom with full-bodied warmth and deliver stunning projection.
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 favored by many drummers here at Sweetwater. 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 sound that’s perfect for modern music.
Whether you’re looking for control or portability, you’ll find it here in the A Zildjian City Pack. The 12″ New Beat Hi-hats bring the time-honored light-top/heavy-bottom “chick” to a new low-profile format, with a fast decay and focused pitch that stays out of the way of other instruments. Up top, the Zildjian 14″ Fast Crash delivers a quick, cutting blow and fast choke that’s great for many styles of modern music. Finally, the capable 18″ Uptown Ride, with its unlathed surfaces and extensive hammering, delivers tight, defined sticking and a dark, throaty wash with tremendous musical potential.
Quick and cutting, the A Zildjian 12″ New Beat Hi-hats are a novel addition to the celebrated New Beat lineage. They’re comprised of a lighter top on a more musical bottom, able to deliver a responsive foot pump, a musical wash, and tremendous volume when you need it. The 12″ size goes great with smaller drum sets, cajon kits, and percussion setups. Symmetrical machine hammering and lathing add brightness and decibels to Zildjian’s ages-old B20 bronze recipe.
