The Zildjian A Custom range was introduced to offer a contemporary alternative to the company’s longstanding Avedis series of cymbals, which have been a keen favourite amongst percussionists since their introduction. Zildjian did not introduce the A custom series to offer a departure from their signature sound; it is more an additional option which allows musicians to fine tune their sound.


The A Custom series offers musicians a range of choices in varied diameters to further hone their signature sound. The Fast Crash and EFX have experienced much commercial success, becoming popular lines. Other options include the Crash, Medium Crash and Projection Crash.


This choice allows drummers to mix and match their sound, creating a bespoke drum kit which is truly unique. As in true Zildjian style, the cymbals are made adhering to their traditional formula of 80 per cent copper and 20 percent tin, with the occasional glimmer of silver.


So if the formula used in manufacture is very similar to the Avedis range, what is it that makes the sound different? Well this is not so easy to determine, because of course Zildjian keep their exact methods of production very close to their chests, and so they should. It is the way these materials are mixed however, rather than a change in the ratio of materials used, which creates the higher pitched sound.


In terms of aesthetics, the Zildjian A Custom 14” Crash cymbals have a brilliant finish and have been buffed, to quote the official Zildjian catalogue, “to a warm golden hue”. The cymbals’ lathing consists of neat bands, which start at the centre of the cymbal and work outwards towards the edge. Under stage lights, or even just the lights in your garage, the lathing bands create a shimmering effect which is magnified when the cymbals are struck.


What about the sound I hear you cry. The 14” is of course a very fast talking cymbal, although it is still able to produce a significant volume of sound which belies its small size. Compared to other crashes you may have had the pleasure to strike in the past, there is no denying the Zildjian A Custom 14” is relatively high pitched, but despite that, the sound is full, strong and by no means brittle. 


For a beautiful looking crash cymbal which enables you to create a sound very much of your own, the Zildjian A Custom 14” Crash is fast enough and loud enough to do your talking for you. For the very best prices, take a look at the Zildjian A Custom 14” Crash here at Instrumania.

The D2 acoustic drum kit is a pretty nice drum kit all told.  If you’re a beginner like me then you’re probably not going to need anything else for quite a while.  The drum shells themselves look to be really well made and are really sturdy.  I made the mistake of buying a cheap drum kit a while ago and was quite unimpressed with the quality.  In fact, it’s in bits in my loft right now!  The colour on the shells is really just a plastic laminate that is glued onto the shells, but it does look awesome and anyway, it’s  the sound that counts!

 

The tom heads on this kit are a little on the thin side, but it doesn’t really matter.  The kick heads are better and so are the snares.  The cymbal stands are pretty perfect; not too heavy and each part is double-braced unlike other cheaper drum kits.  The only thing I would say about the cymbals is that they are a little thick and this can spoil the sound a little making it more metallic than it needs to be.  But saying that once you get into a good rhythm it doesn’t really notice.  I just needed to tell myself this was a beginner kit and bought to teach me techniques rather than appreciate really good sound.  Later when I’m good I’ll think about buying a more expensive kit.

 

The chair is okay, but might need a cushion after a while as it got a little uncomfortable.  It’s fine for shorter periods of practice though.  You also get 6 pairs of sticks and a stick bag which I wasn’t expecting so that was pretty cool.

 

Assembling the kit was pretty easy too and it was pretty obvious where everything needed to fit.  The Ddrum website also features a video on how to construct the kit.  I don’t think you can get a better drum kit of the price even if you were to buy a used kit.  The quality of the hardware and the drums themselves is good and whilst the cymbals might be a bit weak you’re simply not going to find a set of cymbals for this price.

 

Overall really really happy with this kit and I know it’s going to give me lots of great practicing time over the years. 

 

We’ve all been guilty of dreaming of becoming the next Cozy Powell, Lars Ulrich or Neil Peart, a true sensation in the drumming world, but there is that one little thing holding you back, the cost.


Who wants to invest thousands on a drum kit when they are not even sure if drumming is right for them? I’m as guilty as the next for taking up a hobby requiring a substantial investment only to lose interest after a few weeks.
