Default My free cymbal

Recently I was given this Zildjian Z Custom Projection crash. I haven't ever used Z customs, but I'll have to say this doesnt sound half bad. Not my first choice, but hey...it was free. It's pretty old, and has been used quite a bit, but it hasn't lost its shimmering sound at all. This thing has a giant bell, so it's super loud! Anyways... I polished it up to post some pics.

Not my first choice in cymbal but you got a pretty good deal. How do you like it? Pretty loud i would guess. Just wondering, how does someone find a cymbal for free? Five-finger discount? : ) Or did you "borrow" it from your band director?

haha It's not bad. As I said it wouldn't be my first choice either...but indeed it is a great deal. It's very loud with a long decay. Someone at my Church found it laying around and realized it hadn't been used there in a long time...so they said "have it".

haha..i was like...wait...im being called racist? haha

naw, i have all the respect for Zildjian that i can have.

but, my personal choice is Zildjian...no reason...just is..

now, if Zildjian decides to give me a endorsement deal and all the K Customs i want for free, then we'll talk..

I'm pretty sure they aren't discontinuing the Z series, and I would sure hope not.

I wish someone would just give me a random Z custom free....

ROFLOL.....................too funny man.

I use a Z custom ride, Love the bell and dark undertones of it. But the Crashes are just too loud for what I play but they look great.

Congrats on the cymbal. free is my favorite price
