The design of the A Zildjian Flash Splash features two distinct finishes that allow for a bright splash sound with dynamic sensitivity. Developed in conjunction with world renowned drummer/educator Peter Erskine, these splashes emit a full-bodied sound with slightly longer sustain than standard splashes. A synergy is created between the thicker bell area and the thin outer edge, providing sustain with shimmering musicality. The unlathed bell has been highly polished, which enhances its bright tone color. The cymbal responds from the lightest touch to more aggressive strikes without losing its distinct tonality.
