i've had both the a custom and the aax..

i'd pick the aax..

but you might wanna try the avedis zildjan extra thin splash!!!

I totally agree with the aax. I too have a 10 and 8 inch splash setup, very complimentary in subdued playing. 8)

Exactly , tell us what kind of sound do you think is the best for you:)
I have Istanbul Mahmet Tradicional splash 8" and I think ,that is better than Radiant splash , for me of course:)

it depends on what kind of sound you're looking for
Splash cymbals should be divided into 2 groups: trashy or chimy. In my experience, A Zildjians & A Customs are into the chimy side of the coin. I prefer the trashier ones like Ks & Wuhans. I belive our friend Mefiu is looking for a bright sounding splash cymbal, right? Most of the higher splashes I've heard tends to be chimy - specially the A Customs. So if that is what your looking for, then thats my suggestion.

I have an agazarian 10'' splash, it sounds beautiful. It was $20 and sounds pretty close to the Ziljian A splashs. So for the bright sound agazarian may be the way to go. Hope you u find what is good for

Buy one of my trashcan lid 17'' splashes. I can make the handle unlathed if you would like. Polished or unpolished? (It's only about $600, I dunno I forget the pricing, look at my post titled 'Blegh')
