This cymbal has a bright, fast, high pitched sound and is very cutting. It is very responsive, it is easier to activite and has a quicker decay than other medium crashes I have tried. The one I bought has no annoying ringy after-tones, but I tried another of the same model that did. If you like bright sounds, Alphas are some of the best you can get for the money (especially crashes and splashes. Alpha chinas suck though, I had one and they are medium weight so they have a long, ringy, high pitched decay).

I got this Cymbal, and was incredibly disappointed. It sounds like a 14" cymbal, so its kinda high pitched and has a short decay, like a splash. This cymbal sounds like a cheap cymbal, which really bothers me. It does have a good sticking sound, like if you use it as a ride, but the problem is that it is too small to have a god sound as a ride. I will probably return this cymbal in a few days.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

Great cymbal. It cuts yet is very dynamic, VERY sturdy considering its weigth and size (I own the 16" version). I use thise live in church services as well as the metal gigs and all in between. It has held up really nice to everything. Can't beat the price for this quality. If only the made a 17" & 19" version...

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I recently bought the 16 inch crash, and the paiste alpha medium 14 inch hi-hats, and they both sound amazing together, the crash though, has such a beautiful tone, its great for accents and harder hits. its roll especially sounds wonderful. i used to have the old paiste 18 inch crash, and this is a great inprovement. go for this!

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I give this cymbal a 9 becuase no cymbal is perfect. I just got two 16" versions of this cymbal and i must say I am very satisfied. Im a big zildjian player and comparing this cymbal to an A custom 16, this paiste sounds way better (to me anyway). If you are looking for a good cymbal awesome for any style of music and dont want to spend too much, this is it.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

Awesome. For being such a heavey crash, it doesn't take alot of force to get this thing to explode. The machining and finish make this cymbal look great when hit by lights. It sounds like a cymbal should. I have the 18 and will definatley buy more.

Alphas ARE Professional

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I own the 14" medium crash and the 16" Medium crash. They can project and they are silvery and washy with a little meat to them. If you are on the fence about your next crash, get one of these, you won't be disappointed. And Alphas ARE professional, just check out Paiste.com and you can see for yourself that actual recording artists use Paiste Alphas.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I have the older version of the alpha 16" crash, and just got the 18" crash! (new version) And let me tell you with this and the 16", mixed with a sabian AA 20"medium ride, it all goes together. Suprisingly the AA sounds quite like the Alpha, so it blends great. I definatley recommend this.

amazing sound for the money

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I'm still considered new to drumming (i've only been playing about 2 years now). However, in that time i've been exposed to much. Especially diffrent cymbals. Paiste became my favorite due to their clarity, character and ability to really complement the music you're playing. These Alpha line cymbals are of no exception. They feel great, sound great and look incredible for the money. Enough said.
