Cymbals have been around for centuries, and the more time that goes by, the better they get. In ancient times, they could never have dreamed of making cymbals as thin and lightweight as the paper-thin crash cymbals in this section. Which is their loss, because these are some pretty amazing cymbals! Being as thin as they are means they're incredibly fast and precise, so if you play a style or speed that needs a lot of control over the crash, these are probably the cymbals for you. Thinner cymbals are also known for their fuller sound, and in a crash cymbal, that extra fullness goes a long way. It's no wonder paper-thin crashes are so popular for drummers in every corner of the music community!
One of the interesting things about crash cymbals is that you can actually tell a bit about their sound just by how they look. The higher the polish, the crisper the tone. Which means that if you're looking for a "raw" sound, you can focus on duller-finished cymbals like the Istanbul Agop Signature Crash Cymbal. For a cleaner effect, set your sights on something shinier, such as the Zildjian Azuka Latin Multi-Crash Hand and Stick - this particular cymbal delivers a specialized sound that's designed for Latin music but can work for lots of other genres as well. And that's just one example of a specialty cymbal: the Meinl Byzance Trash Crash Cymbal is another.
Whether you like your cymbals traditional or exotic, there ought to be a few options for you in this lineup of paper-thin crash cymbals. Of course, nobody can pick them out for you - it's a matter of personal preference and it depends on your playing style, as well as the signature sound you want to create. But one thing is for sure: with their distinct burst of tone, these cymbals have what it takes to contribute in a big way.
