These traditional-finish A Series hi-hats have a lightning-fast response for short, tight, funky beats. Four holes in bottom provide fast air release, making them all the more nimble.
Developed with the assistance of drumming icon Vinnie Colaiuta, A Customs utilize radical rotary hammering techniques, thin to medium weights for a crisp, sweet, sophisticated A Zildjian sound. Not too dark, not too bright–cymbals that are just right for modern music.
Alloy: Zildjian Cast Bronze: 80% Copper, 20% Tin, Traces of Silver.
Hammering: Radically modern rotary hammering for thinner weight cymbals.
Lathing: Fine pattern of narrow symmetrical grooves that create just enough stiffness.
Sound: A bright, responsive, melodic and more refined take on traditional A Zildjian sounds.
Zildjian Cast Bronze Cymbals
Cast Bronze cymbals are individually poured and cast from raw molten metal. Each casting is cooled and sorted by weight for each cymbal model, then the castings are put through a complex sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing techniques unique to each cymbal range.
Cast Bronze cymbals have a rich, full-bodied sound that improves with age, and have greater projection, clarity and durability than any other cymbals. Zildjian cast cymbals are made from the Zildjian secret alloy, which is comprised of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver.
