      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I've been playing the 18" for 30 years. It has never let me down. I rock the crash; I ride the crash; I crash the crash; and I even sizzle the crash. It has a bright, projecting sound. I know some of you like the darker tones, but you have to have at least one brightly powerful crash... and this is it. A. Zildjian - you can't go wrong. I have thinner crashes, but this, and crashing the Rock Ride, cut through the amps and PA live. Hit it softer, and you get a softer crash...still bright. It's a little hard controlling the overtones in the studio, but once the sound engineer dials it in, it sounds perfect recorded too.

      I had the pleasure to play this cymbal, and was depressed when I had stop playing it! The sound is great and it is a Zildjian, so it is guaranteed to be great. I would suggest this product to anyone in search for a great cymbal thats built to last.

      One word. LOUD.

      By Kyle

      from Philadelphia, PA

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal is great. Very loud. Great sustain. Extremely powerful. Its great especially if you play rock/punk/metal, any of that. I wouldn't say that its good for all styles of music. Just mainly loud, fast music. So if thats not your thing, then cymbal probably won't be your thing.

      A great cymbal.

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I saw a lot of reviews mentioning that the cymbal is a little too heavy or thick. This is true, when I first got mine I was a little annoyed with its thickness. But, if you keep playing, this cymbal will love you. Once you "break" it in you will like it much more than during your first play of it. I have the 16" model and its the crash cymbal I prefer to ride because of its heaviness. Its thickness really allows it to take a beating. These line of cymbals will flow very well with the Medium A's, so you can mix those cymbals and come out sounding great. I highly recommend buying this cymbal. Long live Zildjian.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I got the 18 inch rock crash used about a year ago. It was very dirty when i got it, but i feel that the dirt on it is what makes it sound so good to me. I compared the sound from new to used and i love how mine sounds so much more. i would suggest letting your cymbal get a little dirty.

      Decent I Guess

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      Dont get me wrong, this thing will take a major beating, but it sounds so loud and so thick! Personally, spend some extra dough and get Medium crashes if you want good volume and sound. My friend actually let his get super tarnished and then sanded of all the grime. It now sounds like a gong lol.

      If want a great cymbal get this 1. It is awesome! I have had the 16" for about a year and it is sounding great. I also just got the 18" about a week ago and that thing is beastly.

      Excelent for aggressive sound

      By drumsaj2010

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal:

      If you play metal or any form of hard rock this will work well with you. Still holding up great after a year and I got it used. But if you ever play softer music at all I'd recomend getting a thinner cymbal.
