I got this crash from my brother after he sold all of his drums and cymbal's to buy new one's. He offered this to me for free so how the heck could I have gone wrong. Once mounting the cymbal it was great and havent stoped using it. For over 200 it could be a little high in price but Pasiste stay's behind there products and you know your getting your money's worth.

      Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

      I own the 16" & 18" fast crash and I am still amazed at the full range of sound coming from these beautiful cymbals. The 18" has low frequency characteristics almost like a gong, its so full in tonality. The 16" is my main crash but the 18" is there when you need that big full range crash. The 16" replaced a very old shrill sounding 16" A Zildjian I've had since the 60's. The 18" replaced a 18" Paiste 2002 crash that I have owned for 35 years. I know how much people love the 2002 series and I also have 2002 sound edge Hi Hats and 2002 20" china but the crash just can't compare to the Signature Fast Crash in full range of tone. Their expensive but they bring a smile every time I hear them and therefore their worth the cost.

            I was searching for long time to upgrade to a professional cymbals. I have a mix of Sabian and Ziljian cymbals but I just didn't hear that perfect fast crash sound I was looking for. When I heard it, I knew that was the one.. I bought the 14" and It far exceeded my expectations. this is my absolute favorite cymbal!

                If you are breaking cymbals of any kind, you are abusing them and obviously do not have a clue about what you are doing. Keep hitting them as hard as you can champ…

                  Just used these on a studio session, and they were absolutely fantastic! Great sounding cymbals with good feel. They were cutting but not abrasive, sitting right in the mix with the rest of the instruments. I've never used a 14" crash before because most of them sound like big splashes. The one that I used was simply awesome.

                    play mostly classic rock and blues.....got the Paiste Signatue 15" fast crash to complement the 17, 18, 19 inch full crash & 20 inch full ride Paiste Signature cymbals on my kit....was looking for something a bit softer to use during verses that wouldn't overwhelm or take away from our lead singer...this absolutely fits the bill and gives me a lot more versatility and options in my playing....searching now for a one step down splash below the 15"......not cheap, but no doubt Paiste rules when it comes to a professional sound.....

                    Great, versatile, little cymbal

                    By Chris Parr

                    from Jefferson City, MO

                    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

                    I've been playing Paiste cymbals for 20+ years, and the signature line is the top of the mountain as far as I'm concerned. This cymbal was purchased to compliment my current setup which includes a 10" sound formula splash, 16" signature full crash, 16" signature power crash, and 19" signature full crash. The 14" signature fast crash fits in perfectly. The sound is higher in pitch, but projects every bit as well as a larger crash. The attack is big and there is just enough sustain. It is a fast crash, so the sustain isn't what you would get with a thicker or larger cymbal. That's just what I was looking for. This cymbal will fit very nicely into any style of music from light jazz to rock. I don't know that this would be a good choice for a hard rock/metal player, but who knows? I'd leave that opinion to someone who plays that style. Bottom line, you can't go wrong with Paiste. Their Signature Line is what cymbals are supposed to sound like, and this cymbal is a perfect link between smaller splashes and average crashes.

                    needed cymbal size and sound not as large as 16". the cymbal has a beautiful sound with rapid decay. good with other brand cymbals and has just the voice that is neede at times.

                    I use to have this Paistes Signature 16" Fast Crash Cymbal. I made the mistake selling it w/ an old drumkit of mine. After years had gone by, I had to go out and buy it again. I'm glad I did. A sound of its own.
