This is an amazing quality cymbal I can't even start describing it! It is like a freakin superman cymbal...its virtually invincible (didnt even dent for me). I doubled it as a ride for my beginer set, because I liked the type of sizzling sound it wasmaking, it a unique crash/ride. I recommend this for beginners, but since these are great, I cant imagine what the PST 5s are like, so buy those in the pack to save cash in the long run.

If your looking for an inexpenisve durable cymbal you found it this is a great product for the price but it isnt nearly powerful enough i had the 16" years ago and it seems like everything would overpower it and it didn't resonate very long. but who can argue with the price?

    It is difficult to buy cymbals on the internet. This one was not even close to what I had hoped for. Sent it back for a refund. Guess I will stick to buying from a local music store (and paying more).

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

      The genre I play is indie rock. I've had this cymbal for about three years, but soon after I started using it, I switched it out for a heavier crash. This is because this cymbal has a very fast decay, doesn't cut through other sounds, and has a thin, trebly tone that isn't what I was going for.

      Then, about six months ago, I decided to expand my kit a bit, and I gave this guy another go. As a secondary crash, it's PERFECT. It's got more presence than a splash would, and does a great job of adding variety to fills.

      So, as your only crash: awful! As a secondary crash: great!

        PST3 Crash

        By BIGAL-ypCo1

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

        This is DEFINITELY a solid cymbal, however, in my lineup of Paiste Alphas and pst5 Thin Crashes, it does not cut through and isn't as loud as the rest. For this reason, I use mine as a Crash/Ride and it works perfectly for that. I've had it for about probably a year now and it has very few marks or anything on it and, like I said, it is a very solid and good cymbal for beginners. If you're looking for a crash/ride but don't want to buy an expensive one and have crashes that are louder and cut through very well, buy this for that reason. Perfect cymbal for what I ask it to do and I love it.

        Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

        I read the reviews and wanted to give it a shot, but this is a worthless crash. It sounds crapper then my sabian crash thats cracked. This has no sound but a flat dry metal thud. I would not recommend this to anyone at all. It's pathetic.

        Paiste PST 3 16'' Crash

        By elena tsikhanovski

        from tri-state area

        Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

        One great product.
        Got this great amazing fantastic cymbal. I'm simply BLOWN away by how great it is. I mean this cymbal sounds better than some high end cymbals, and believe me, I know. it doesn't sustain for so long that by the time you finish rehearsal its still ringing. Its sustain is pretty short, just how I like it.
        After a while I saw bits of the coating disappearing, but it wont dent or crack. Great thing.
        Buy it, its worth it.

        14 in sucks

        By reg93

        from topeka ks

        Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

        i havent tried out the others but the 14 in crash sounds good at first but after a couple of months it starts to sound bad. if you are a starter who has a really tight budget get it but if you are loking for somthing with beter value and sound get a zijian zbt or a sabian b8. this cymbol will do fine for a while bu you might want to evanually replace it

        Eh. Couldve been better.

        By Mike

        Comments about Paiste PST 3 Crash:

        Look, I've been playing drums for 10 years, and recently broke my Zildjian A custom thin right in half. So Im like ok early pay check and I needed a new cymbal cheap before a gig. This is a great starter cymbal. But i cannot wait to start switching back to my A and K custom cymbals. Comparing this to those is actually depressing. Its a great cymbal dont get me wrong haha. Just if you are used to nice cymbals and you need a quick cymbal. Go to a PST5 not a PST3 reason being the PST5 is a lot louder and has more ring. If you like fast dying cymbals stick with this. But for my taste I like a loud ring :D so this kinda disappointed me since it was a Paiste and are usually very loud. Overall its good beginner cymbal, not good for experienced users.
