I bought this 18 inch Rock crash about 6 months ago, its not bad for a practice cymbal but i realllllly wish i had gotten a thin crash. I love the pst5's with a passion. They are so inexpenseve, soooo durable, and sound amazing. Do not buy the pst5 ROCK crash. It is way too loud and way too dark and way too heavy. Really. The PST5's however are amazing. Get the thin or medium crash. This cymbal is way too heavy their description is wrong. If you want a bright cymbal trust me, get the thin or medium pst5.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

I have used both 16 & 18 inch versions of this cymbal. Only one cracked & most likely because of my playing & letting someone else borrow it. Had a replacement plan & bought the same cymbal again. Good sound, value & quality.

      I play heavy rock and this cymbal sounds good for my basic sound. I'm primarily a paiste man and have been content for many years with their lower-mid price lines. This is no exception.

      AWSOME!

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      This cymbal is great for the money. I've had it for about a year and it has not even shown signs of cracking/denting. The 18in. has a nice heavy sound perfect for Rock and Metal. I would suggest it to anyone who needs a quality crash.

      Its cheap, good brand, Im Happy w/ it

      By Blake Schneiderhan

      from MN

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      I bought this cymbal because all I had was a pair of zbt high hats, a B8 18" thin crash and a B8 ride. I got the 16" crash and im pretty happy with it it adds more variety when i play now. the only thing i dont like is that to me, it sounds to weak or soft. Im a drummer who doesnt know much about drums (just know how to play) but all in all im happy with the product

      Great Cymbal, Even for a Lower Budget

      By Joseph Turchi

      from New Jersey

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      If you're looking for a great rock cymbal that you can hammer home and still get a great tone out of every time for a great price compared to other quality cymbals, this is the way to go.
      I've been an extremely hard hitting drummer for the past 6 or 7 years. I play with my cymbals relatively low, they aren't swinging above my head and yet and I've broken Zildjians, Sabians, and Wuhans. After joining a band, I decided I would need to replace my damaged cymbals. I didn't want to go cheap, but I didn't have the money for high-end cymbals. I don't like Zildjians or Sabians because I've had bad luck with them, so after hearing about Paiste cymbals, I researched them endlessly. I settled on buying the PST Rock Crash 16" to use as a crash cymbal next to my main crash cymbal that I use to ride on during rock choruses. (I used an 18" Wuhan Crash, and it was way too thin, the poor thing never had a chance. I don't think it was worth more than $50.) Back to the point, I bought the Paiste PST 5 back about 4 or 5 months ago, I've hammered it almost every day since, and there are no signs of wear or tear. I love this cymbal to death, it's loud enough to cut through at band practice, it's got a beautiful shiny finish, much better looking in person than in the picture, and it has a beautiful tone that makes you want to stop playing and listen to it fade away. It's not top of the line, I understand that there are cymbals that are better than this one, but for the price, I don't think it can be beat. After playing this Paiste, i never want to use any other brand again. It holds up great, and it has a beautiful, glassy, icy tone. I was surprised of this myself because the cymbal is only 16", but even the bell had a beautiful tone, not too washy, just enough of a ping for accents, I love it. This is a great cymbal, the price is almost unbeatable, it's such a deal. I'll never get rid of it. I'm now looking to get a Paiste RUDE Ride/Crash to replace my Wuhan because I'm so confident in Paiste.

      A Beautiful Sounding Crash Cymbal

      By Chanie Bernard

      from Kaplan, Lousiana

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      This Paiste PST5 Rock Crash is an amazing cymbal, especially for the money your paying for it. It is the best sounding crash cymbal I have ever heard, (I have the 18in). This cymbal has a great tone for any type of music but sounds great for that old Bonham style drumming (seeing as Bonham used Paiste's). The bell on it is clear and very bright and if you play this cymbal like a ride cymbal it sounds better than most ride cymbals out there on the market, and its a crash cymbal! Paiste did right by this cymbal and all their products are up to par with this one, as I use all Paiste cymbals. Great product, great value, what more could you ask for? Keep on Paiste and thank you for a great product.

      Paiste PST 5 18 inch Rock Crash

      By Lucas

      from Sanford, ME

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      This is by far one of the best crash cymbals I've ever had. It sounds perfect if you dont tighten up the stand on it to much and let it be loose. It doesn't last too long and interfear with the other cymbals or whatever else your playing. Its perfect for playing music like A Day To Remember. Highly recommended!

      19

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      Not a noob, been playing for 25 years and for a cheap cymbal these are great, I like the 19" way better than the Apha 18" medium I have and it cost like $50 less. They sound better than most others in their price range, but woudn't recommend getting anything smaller than an 18" It's got a nice musical tone and a sweet bell that is large and almost ride-like. It didn't get a 5 because very few cymbals get a 5 in my book, but this one is a great buy.

      Big Sound, small price

      By Tim

      from Portland, OR

      Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Crash:

      As a poor person I look for the cheapest way to get cool things. I got the 19 inch, only because they offered a fat huge discount that made it almost as cheap as the 16. The sound is really big and Loud. The sustain is impressive and it's very clear . The only thing "iffy" is (the 19 inch at leat) sounds more like a crash/ride, real bellowy and gong-like. which fantastic for slow epic songs but a bit overkill for punk. but whatever it's all I'll be able to afford for awhile so I LIKE IT.
