I've been using Paiste stuff for almost all of my life since I was kid. I loe them for their full, heavy and warm sound. 2,5 years ago I bought 2002 Full Crash 18" (unfortunately discontinued cymbal) and this 18" medium crash is the great couple for my 18" Full crash. It's sounds really awesome! Paiste Forever!PS BTW, it sounds great also with 2002 China 18"!

I have these on my Ludwig set and I'm not in love with them. They do sound very vintage, but I don't care for the sound or feel of them. So I guess they're okay if you are truley set on having your drum set sound like it's from the '60s, including the bad qualities. It's kind of a weird feeling when hitting them, not much rebound, kind of dead. Also, the coating comes off very quickly. So overall, they are what they say they are, but just be sure that's what you're really after.

Comments about Paiste 2002 Medium Crash Cymbal:

Paiste is the way to go. I own the 18" medium, and it is the best cymbal i have ever heard. Its loud, bright, and full sounding. And they're the best looking cymbals out there. Plus the same one Bonham used! So buy this cymbal.

THis is what you've been looking for

Comments about Paiste 2002 Medium Crash Cymbal:

Tommy Aldridge, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Ian Paice, Nick Mason, Alex Van Halen, and I, along with countless other classic rock and metal drummers, use paiste 2002's. I bought the 18" medium and i now swear by paiste. Zildjians were what i was playing before, and im glad i took a chance and bought paiste. Its not a chance, its an investment. Paiste does not accept as many variations in sound and thickness as zildjian, there cymbals are made for recording or stage use. Paistes in general, are more expensive, however, that extra cash buys better quality and better sound. I gave this cymbal a 10 for value because i strongly believe that this cymbal is worth the extra cash. If youre a serious drummer, paiste is the only way to go. Try out paiste, you'll see, hear and feel the differnce. Plus the finsh on them is beautiful and does not show scratches and fingerprints as much as zildjians. If you play classic rock, your not a true classic rock drummer without this.

classic paiste quality

By danmusicman

Comments about Paiste 2002 Medium Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is amazing. Durable, versatile, rich, controllable... the list goes on. I have tried my different cymbals but this crash does it all. I have the 18" and it's the only crash on my kit so naturally it gets a lot of use. It has lasted longer than any sabian i've ever had, and it's sound actually improves day to day.. which seems odd, but it's true. Never been happier with a cymbal. More of a 'high' crash for sound, high wash, long sustain.

2002's are incredible

By Steve-lQVwL

Comments about Paiste 2002 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I bought this medium 2002 cymbal after getting disgusted with any kind of zildjian cymbal cracking after only a year or so of playing. So without further ado lets get down to it. Paiste is the best brand. Period. You can not find a better sounding cymbal. The 2002 line is incredible. These cymbals will not break. They are thick, but they are still crisp and bright, they shimmer and they have a very nice long and full decay. They work great in any situation; metal, rock, worship, etc. and not too mention that they are beautiful cymbals too! Who cares about spending a few dollars on a cymbal, if you are a serious cymbal Paiste is the ONLY serious choice!

    Comments about Paiste 2002 Medium Crash Cymbal:

    It's a Paiste 2002, do I need to say more? Have been playing Paiste for over 30 years, have never had a 2002 18 in crash, seen this on the open box deals, and thought what the heck. It's a real gem, reminds me of my Paiste Signature crashes that I use.
