By Neville Jon

from Australia

Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is a little specialised- perfect in the right setting, but definitely not for loud or heavy music. Excellent for symphonic purposes, fast build-ups, and washes.
For drum set, I use the 20" version as a crash ride with ball chains attached for a sizzle effect. Couldn't bring myself to drill it for rivets, which would probably dampen the overtone too much anyway. The cymbal is quite thin, and the flat cup reduces ring just enough. I love it.

Just Right

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

Very versatile cymbal that has been able to adapt to my changing styles over the last 3 years. I wouldn't recommend the smaller sizes since it is a thinner cymbal and without care it will crack easily but mine has lasted 3 years of playing and gigging and only broke by something falling on it.

Beautiful cymbal

By sixfootfall

from Louisville, Ky

Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

Although this cymbal is easily broken, it is probably has the most beautiful sound I've ever heard from a cymbal. This is not a cymbal meant for heavy crashing. It is more of an accent cymbal. I would not recommend this to a drummer who plays nothing but heavy metal, unless you want it merely as an accent. Overall, one of my favorite cymbals. It just requires a little more love than others.

Weak

By LombardoDrummer

from Bear, DE

Comments about Paiste Signature Crystal Thin Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal has awesome sound, but after ten months of play it has a 4 inch crack in it. It's not worth paying that much money if it breaks in less than a year. Big waste of money.
