Cymbals come in lots of styles, and every drummer's kit is going to end up at least a little bit different from anyone else's, because no two drummers have exactly the same style. Some cymbals are even considered optional - for instance, the splash cymbal actually disappeared from usage until Stewart Copeland brought it back. But one cymbal that could safely be called a staple is the crash cymbal. Virtually every drummer will use a couple of these, and like other cymbals, they're made in lots of different weights and finishes. If you like yours light (but not too light), then this selection of medium-thin crash cymbals is the right place to start looking.

So what's the difference? In general, the heavier a cymbal is, the louder - but also slower. When you want speed and control while keeping a little bit more volume and sustain than the lightest cymbals, a medium-thin can get you there. That makes them popular for situations like recording and small gigs, where you can take advantage of their cutting sound while keeping low overtones in check for a clean mix, and get a fast enough fade that you won't overwhelm the vocals. In a world (and a music scene) that all too often falls into the trap of thinking "bigger/louder is better," there's a lot to be said for crash cymbals that offer this level of precision.

Naturally, there's no "one size fits all" when it comes to medium-thin crash cymbals. The best choice for you might be the Paiste Giant Beat 18" Crash, or it could be the Stagg DH Dual-Hammered Exo Medium Thin Crash Cymbal. For an experienced drummer, an option like the Sabian Artisan Series 3 Point Crash Cymbal is definitely tempting. But if you're new, maybe the Zildjian ZBT Crash Cymbal would make more sense. It's all up to you, so don't be afraid to take your time and consider all the choices carefully - that's the best way to make sure you end up with the right one!
