One of the nice things about choosing cymbals is that you'll always have some idea of what it's going to sound like, because every type of cymbal is named after the kind of tone it delivers. Splash cymbals are the perfect example: designed to be hit hard, they produce an effect kind of like the splash you get when you jump into a pool. And speaking of hitting hard, if you're playing a genre that demands the biggest power and volume, you'll probably want to turn the weight up as well - this selection of heavy splash cymbals is more than qualified to help you out with that. Don't be fooled by the small diameter of these effects cymbals; their sound is as big as any of their relatives!
The first splash cymbals were created by Gene Krupa and Zildjian, but they didn't really catch on until they resurfaced with Stewart Copeland in The Police. If that's the style you prefer to play, then you should probably start off your search with options like the Meinl Mb20 Rock Splash Cymbal and the Istanbul Mehmet Carmine Appice Splash. On the other hand, if you're a punk or heavy metal drummer, why not check out the Paiste Rude Splash or the Meinl Classics Custom Extreme Metal Splash Cymbal? Or, if you're a beginner, maybe the Mapex Boom Arm with Free 10" Splash Cymbal will be the way to go.
No matter which heavy splash cymbals have the best qualities for your needs, you can always count on a few things. Above all else, these are effects cymbals with quick attack and decay, and the number of ways you can use them is limited only by your imagination. If you need a little inspiration to get you started, that's okay too: just listen to some classic work by Krupa or Copeland, and stoking those creative fires will come naturally for sure.
