Celebrating 25 years of cymbal brilliance
In 1992, the A Custom Series broke new ground in cymbal manufacturing techniques. A Custom is universally recognized for its bright, cutting sound, brilliant finish and is played by many top international artists across all genres of music.

The 25th Anniversary Ride features symmetrical hammering, of course the brilliant finish, a clear and cutting bell and is crashable with a medium thin weight for a well-balanced sound.
"A Custom cymbals are one of our most popular cymbal lines around the globe and we wanted to create something special that gives drummers the opportunity to own a piece of Zildjian history."
- Victor Filonovich, Category Manager for Cymbals at Zildjian

The Limited Edition 25th Anniversary Ride is available at select dealers.
