A Custom EFX cymbals looks like no other cymbal because they actually are like no other cymbals. Laser cut with carefully placed round and oblong geometric cutouts, these thinner weight effects cymbals produce a quick, dry and “trashy” sound for timely accenting and punctuating. They are particularly well-suited for play when you’re mic-ed up or when going full gonzo in more intimate venues. Once you hear the A Custom EFX in action, it moves to the top of list of cymbal must-haves.
To make A Custom EFX cymbals sound as good as they do, Zildjian uses a proprietary cast bronze alloy with radial rotary hammering and a brilliant finish for added shimmer. EFX cymbals blend harmoniously with other A Customs you may have in your kit so they don’t fight one another acoustically. They are available in four sizes and made in the USA by Zildjian craftsmen using nearly 400-year-old cymbal-making techniques.. The small 14” gives you the option of playing it alone or stacked. The 16” and 18” sizes have good volume and a short sustain. The 20” cymbal, the largest of the A Custom EFXs, delivers a monster crash sound effect on your cue and features a loud, quick and explosive response.
Besides local drummers who value sound effects artistry in their music, who else uses Zildjian A Custom EFX cymbals to express themselves in new and creative ways? There’s Nathan Allen who drums for Amy Winehouse, Stanley Randolph who has played with the legendary Stevie Wonder and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters.
