Crash cymbals are all about playing hard and loud - that's part of how they earned their name, after all. And when you're dealing with a cymbal that wants more volume and more projection, one way to get there is by making it heavier. But that doesn't have to mean you need the absolute heaviest. If you'd like a cymbal that's near the head of the pack in punch, but still has a bit of the control you'd expect from a lighter cymbal, there's a solid chance you'll find your sweet spot in one of these medium-heavy crash cymbals. They're the go-to choice for drummers who want a cymbal that's heavy, yet still pretty versatile.
Speaking of versatility, if you take a look at what this section has to offer, you'll see that for all its similarities, the lineup is actually pretty diverse. Brand loyalists will appreciate the roster of labels including the likes of Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, Meinl and Istanbul Agop. But if you don't care about which name is printed on your cymbal, that's okay too - because all of these medium-heavy crash cymbals can stand on their own as top-tier performers, no matter who made them. You have the freedom to go traditional with cymbals like the Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal, or try out a specialized design such as the Sabian AAX Aero Crash Brilliant. It's up to you!
That's really what it comes down to in the world of percussion, after all: you hold all the power in your hands to choose the perfect cymbals. Since you're looking at medium-heavy crash cymbals, it's safe to say you like 'em loud and hard-hitting. So all that's left to decide now is whether you want your cymbal bright or dark, clean or trashy, sparkling or sizzling - there are cymbals here to satisfy all those tastes and more, so don't hesitate to dive in and start hunting for that diamond in the rough.
