My Favorite Crash

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

    I've used quite an assortment of crashes from the Big Three in 22 years behind a kit. This was and is my favorite crash that I have ever been lucky enough to play and record. While not my first choice in a large live setting, in the studio or small venue, this is my go to crash. Tons of punch, quick decay, pings well enough for light ride duty, and best tonal qualities I've heard in an 18 inch crash. Sadly, after a decade of use and abuse, I cracked my original. I did not hesitate to purchase another.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      Ordered the 20" crash/ride and the delivery was quick(3-5 days). I wish they would have used bubble wrap instead of what appears to be just a bunch of brown paper, but the cymbal survived the trip in one piece with no visible damage to it so. As far as the cymbal itself, it is a little bit thicker then I expected and looks/feels almost more towards a medium weight then a medium-thin weight but it might just be me I don't know I think its fine and it is definitely crash-able so don't worry about that. Overall I would say that I really like the sound of this cymbal. The only negative thing about the cymbal that I can think of is that right now it almost sounds too new and a bit too bright, so I can't wait to hear what it will sound like in a couple years once its aged and has some dirt on it.

      Zildjian Crash Ride is great!

      By Big B-D-3x6

      from Virgie, Ky

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      I have had the 18inch A series crash/ride for 21 years. It is a very powerful crash. It makes a good light ride. When you try to get heavier as a ride, it will begin to wash out. If you can only get one cymbal I would highly suggest you get this one.

      The Perfect Crash Ride Cymbal

      By Andrew

      from Woodside, NY

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      My whole playing career ive used just the standard ride cymbal that never contained much of a crash onto it. After trading in my Z3 24in Monster ride, I decided to pick up one of these bad boys in 22in. Granted, the sound is totally different but what I have now is another crash and a ride. It avoids me having to buy another stand for another crash. The crash is great and the ride is just as good. Its a great cymbal for the price.

      from Guam

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      I love this cymbal,it has some things that I don't like so much though.First off,you have to hit it kind of hard to get a really beutiful crash sound,otherwise it's a perfect crash for jazz.It also has some great overtones if you like more complex sounding cymbals.

      11 Years

      By I_Play_Drums-Q71mO

      from NY

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      This was the first good cymbal I got. I've played many others since, but this one has stayed with me. Very loud. Great versatility, if you want you can get a real decent ping out of the bell, and when crashed this thing is thunderous. It has a real nice sustain as a crash, which can make it wash out if you try to ride too far from the bell.Overall, this cymbal has taken a lot of abuse in the 11 years I've had it and there is no sign of wear other than the usual stick marks and fingerprints. I play mostly rock/hard rock and only within the past 3 years started picking up metal and hardcore. This cymbal has performed excellently. I've played with this as my center cymbal for most setups and it works well.About a year ago I added a ZBT 16 crash, and it cracked on me already. I play the crash/ride way more than the 16 crash, and the crash ride durability puts the ZBT to horrific and humiliating shame. true, 16 -vs- 18, but still... 11 years and no wear, or 1 year and a crack. Seriously?This cymbal will not dissapoint.

      Awesome versatile cymbal

      By coolusername

      from Tennessee

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      I have always felt a little sketchy about a crash/ride because that's what came with my crappy kit as a kid and I hated that cymbal. Anyhow, quality crash rides are the bomb and this cymbal is awesome for doing shimmers and has a nice big bell on it. The ride part is real washy and when you hit this cymbal the sound hangs in the air so don't expect a fast decay out of this one. This is a PERFECT cymbal to use in contemporary church worship and I could probably make do with this and a set of hi hats if I really had to.

      By Drummerpr90

      from Long Island, NY

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

      Lets get this straight, I'm a hard hitter so i decided to use crash rides for my crashes. I have the 18" and the 20" and there both amazing. There really loud at shows compared to other cymbals they are too quiet. I'm about to order a new 18" and 20" and i can't wait to play them!
