2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of Zildjian’s legendary A Custom cymbal series. In 1992, the A Custom Series broke new ground in cymbal manufacturing techniques and is now considered one of the most iconic and popular cymbals in the world. 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.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, Zildjian created a Limited Edition 23” Anniversary Ride Cymbal. Zildjian carefully crafted only 1,000 cymbals in their factory in Norwell, MA and each is numbered from 1 to 1,000 as part of a commemorative laser-etched 25th Anniversary trademark. Each cymbal has also been hand signed by Craigie Zildjian and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The 25th Anniversary Ride features symmetrical hammering, a brilliant finish, a clear and cutting bell and is crashable with a medium thin weight for a well-balanced sound."
