Medium-weight cymbal with large bell boosting volume and power for fast, explosive response.

Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, Sabian Paragon Series Cymbals blend 2 styles of lathing for a very balanced cymbal tone. Pinpoint lathing creates a narrower groove for a fast, lively response on the top, while the traditional AA lathing creates a wider groove for a fuller, richer tone on the bottom side.

I was really dissapointed in this crash. I've been a Sabian user since I started playing 17 years ago. I have the Paragon 22" ride, the 14" hi hats, and the 8" splash. They sound great. I bought the 18" crash and I am completely dissapointed. It's thicker than I thought and has a tinny/metally sound that just has too much prolonged ringing. It just doesn't have that crisp crashing sound I expected when I saw Rush live. I still say the best crash cymbal on the market today by any brand is the AAXplosion or the HHXplosion. Ironically with Neil's line of cymbals, I think the 18" fits in to be used with a metal drummer.

Crash made for arenas

By Peter

from Minneapolis

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

I have the 18" and I just want to warn people, this is a very loud cymbal that you have to hit hard. Its a very thick piece of metal which is awesome for durability and projection, but if you are playing in smaller bars it may be too much. It makes sense... Neil plays in giant arenas and doesn't have to hold back and wants the loudest most powerful cymbals money can buy. When I play a big outdoor show I'm glad I have it. When I play a place where the PA volume isn't cranked, it seems like a bit too much. But I've always liked thin cymbals that exploded with very little stick velocity. This is a quality item tho.. it will not break on you for a long long time.

Paragon Crashes

By Eric Opett

from MD

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

Any Paragon is worth all the money. Don't fall for the whole good sounding ceap cymbals because these are the best way to go. Neil wouldn't let these pass through if they werent the best sounding cymbals, which they totally are the best. After buying all these cymbals, next purchase is Neils kit and then JBL Line Arrays!

AWESOME DEEP DARK CRASH

By Cymbal Fetish

from TULSA OK

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

Every set, I believe, needs at least a great high pitch crash, 14 inch - 15 inch, a great medium pitch, 16 - 17 inch, and a great low pitch crash, 18 inch. I have an 18 inch Neil Peart Paragon crash and it has a great deep, dark, exotic crash effect. I also think that it makes a great ride cymbal and the bell is one of the very best that you can buy. I have 16 cymbals in my set and am really happy to include this one as my low pitch crash and very most versatile cymbal. IT ROCKS.

incredible sound, very versatile

By Micah Rockwell

from South Dakota

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

i give it a 9 overall simply because of the price point. however, even full price isn't a loss on your money. maybe i'm just too cheap. but the quality is definitely there.
I own the 20 inch crash. I love how versatile this cymbal is. I play with church bands as well as rocking out on my own. you can thrash it, babie it, hit the bell, hit the edge, and everything in between. this thing will give you so much response. it will cut through the loudest music, but you can hit it super soft and still get a quality tone out of it-unlike the cheaper cymbals where when you hit it lightly, it just sounds like nasty metal. this is truly a thing of beauty. I also love the long sustain. if this is your only cymbal, long sustain doesn't necessarily work in ALL applications, but you can still make it work. it's long sustain really makes it nice for softer, more intimate music, but when you are thrashing, it blends well with the rest of your music and if you end your playing using it, it kind of brings the whole thing to a nice close, easily sustaining the awesomeness you just played into a nice peacful, "aaahhhhh, that was nice"
you can hit this ALL DAY LONG and it won't break. nuff said.
I can't say much for the value since i bought mine used. however, it looks brand spanking new. i can't say i would pay full price for this. However, if you buy this cymbal, even at this price, it will definitely stand out as one of the best in your group. but if the features is possesses is what you're looking for, then the price you pay will definitely deliver the product you want.

AMAZING

By Daybreak_drummer

from Florida

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

I just had the privilage of buying the 18 inch Paragon Crash, and the sound is incredible! however, its very loud! it goes on the right side of my kit, and already my right ear is popping. Tip: put some duct tape on the bottom of it. it makes it sound darker.

Excellent

By Curtis B

from Sulphur, La

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

I have been playing Sabian Cymbals for many years. I have 15 and 16 inch thin crash. Until I put them up against the Paragons, I thought their was nothing that could beat their sound. I am so impressed with tone, I am looking at now the 16 inch paragon to replace my current cymbal. Beats Zildian K Custom hands down.

Buy the 16

By Willie-bdkcg

from Oakland

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

I had a 16 and an 18 and there was not that much difference in tone or projection so I kept the 16. Very nice. A keeper!!

It's okay...

By Innercityhospitality773

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

Bought this cymbal thinking it would hold up to my style of playing, lasted about 6 months, but during those six months (which included a tour) the thing sounded great... It didn't go to well with my Z custom, but it is a good sounding cymbal, again, don't get it if you play hard... other wise the tone can't be beat... i now use an A custom ping ride for a crash... and its excellent... wuhan's 20'' ride makes a great crash too, without spending all that cash.
