The Avedis Zildjian Co. has commenced celebration of its 25th anniversary of its A Custom cymbals.

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, stated Zildjian.

In honor of its silver anniversary, Zildjian will launch a limited edition 23-inch A Custom 25th Anniversary Ride cymbal. Only 1,000 are in existence worldwide and each cymbal is numbered 1 to 1,000 and is personally signed by Craigie Zildjian. This limited-edition Ride will come in a special cymbal box that includes a certificate of authenticity.

“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,” says Victor Filonovich, category manager for cymbals at Zildjian. “The Limited Edition 25th Anniversary Ride is available at select dealers.

Additionally, drummers in the USA and Puerto Rico who purchase an A Custom cymbal (14 inch or larger) at an authorized Zildjian Dealer can submit their receipt and be entered to win a trip to visit the Zildjian Factory in Norwell, Mass. to pick out their own A Custom set-up.
