This is one of Zildjian's best cymbals. The K Custom line of cymbals probably has the best sounding cymbals in comparison to any other sound I've heard. I bought a cymbal arm holder by Gibraltar designed for splashes and it plays great. It has a really nice quick snap but fast enough for the next hit to be right on target. It is great for metal during fast fills, or breakdowns. Chris Adler is a huge fan of using his splash during a double bass breakdown. It's also good for the groovy rock sound when trying to obtain a fill that has a nice crisp clean, yet quickly quieted, sound. I definitely recommend this cymbal to anyone looking for the right splash. Matt Greiner from August Burns Red also uses this cymbal, so you can only learn from the best.
