Im actually using this as a bottom hi hat cymbal with a K Custom Hybrid Crash on the top. (17") I honestly do not like the way this cymbal sounds as a crash. To much of a gong/bell like ring to it. But for what im using it for it works great.
I was playing my neighbors set the other day (a 10 piece double bass Pearl export) and he had the 16 in. and 19 in. versions of this cymbal. the 16 was very bright and good for accents epecially when hit with a snare. but the 19 in. had a weird sound and an extremley long sustain. After i hit it a couldn't hear myself playing! If your looking for a good cymbal for accenting, go for the 16 in. (or a Sabian AAXplosion crash) but if you want a sturdy main crash, don't get this.
I bought a 16" A medium crash a year ago, and I love it. It blends into my cymbal setup, both visually and sonically. It produces the best tones I have ever heard from a 16" cymbal, and I have seen lots of cymbals. I have at least 5 other drummer friends that all play in bands, and to be honest, none of their crashes can match my A Medium Crash. I am now currently saving up for an 18" one, and hope that I am as thrilled with that one as I am with the 16"
I purchased the 15" crash 4 years ago and its still good as new with no cracks! This cymbal is awesome. The sound is amazing amd its tough!
The worlds most versatile cymbal, the zildjian a series, really do live up to their name. These cymbals have such an explosive sound with such a beautiful sustain. Although some people may be pessimistic of their traditional finish look, its all worth it once you begin to play on them. On most new cymbals they may sound like a clangy piece of metal the first few days, weeks, months, or even years. As the cymbal ages with time and playing, it will sound ALOT better. After you "break in" the cymbal you will immediately notice its beautiful sound it has to offer. Other than that, i believe that zildjian offers the best cymbals out there, after all they have been doing it since the 17th century!
