Win a Zildjian A Custom 16″ Crash

Rock, metal and fusion drummers are into Zildjian A Custom cymbals. Do you want to add an 16″ A Custom Crash to your set-up? Zildjian sent me one and I am giving it away to a creative, excited drummer. Will it be you?

Zildjian sent me a cymbal

It’s quite nice, when people or also companies appreciate what you are doing. It’s even nicer, if they wanna support what you are doing. The best thing is when they actually do support you in an extraordinary way. My keypals from Iran, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine and Guatemala are good examples for that. All the drummers, who took the time for an interview with me are as well. Likewise Yamaha DrumsSchlagwerk PercussionHieber Lindberg and Zildjian are such companies. And of course I am very grateful for that.

This time one of you drummers out there can be more than grateful as well. Because the people at Zildjian made sure that one of their cymbals worth 309 Euro found its way to Munich. Before you might get the wrong idea: no, companies do not constantly send stuff to me and let me keep them. Actually that’s almost never happened so far except for one CD and a book. Anyway, the Zildjian cymbal will be the prize of my first competition. Wanna join?

A couchsurfing Zildjian A Custom 16″ Crash

At the moment the brand new cymbal is surfing my couch. I’m taking good care of it and will only use it for a photo-/ video shooting. However, let me briefly tell you what’s really in for you. Zildjian’s A Custom series stands for a crisp, clean attack. When you hit this brilliant 16″ crash, it responds and also fades out quickly.

It sounds pretty bright and comes with warm undertones. This cymbal works well for everybody: beginner, advanced, intermediate and professional. Style wise it feels most home in rock, metal and fusion music. Endorsees like Matt Greiner, Eric Moore and Eric Singer love them. Wanna add it to your set-up, too?

  • Ahh, I got all excited about going all out and creating a really epic photo and then saw it is a random drawing 🙁

    • Hi Isobel, please get excited again and shoot that epic pic. I need to alter the descriptions / rules, I guess. It’s not completely random of course. The coolest picture will win, that’s why I am asking you to be creative. I will definitely honor the effort. However, what’s cool and what’s not is very subjective. Thanks for sharing your concerns! 🙂

      • Thanks for the clarification- I’ll definitely go all out now! I completely understand that what’s cool or interesting is totally subjective, I was just worried that it was entirely random, now I know it isn’t I’ll get cracking 😀

        • Cool, Isobel. Can’t wait. So far your chances are very good!
