This is the main crash cymbal that a drummer donated to our church right before he died from cancer. His taste in cymbals was impeccable. This cymbal has a great wash that you can get whether you just tap it, or whack it. Just seeing it online doesn't do it justice. Buy this and enjoy this wonderful cymbal.

Don't get me wrong I love the Paiste cymbal sounds, however each and every Paiste I've seen from Pst 3 to signature end up breaking in so little time, you can't really enjoy them or get turned on in gigs because if you hit one of these hard it will break or get bent, that is the one reason I would never have paiste cymbals and the prize is really high for a crash that won't really last long, I've had zildjian A Customs and I've treated them really well for over 3 years and they still sound great and have never broken

Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

I have several Paiste signiture cymbals and recently added the 18" fast crash to my line up. These cymbals have a crisp, clean, and distinct attack followed by a very clean wash. There are no sour overtones and these cymbals sound great soft or loud. You get what you pay for and these cymbals deliver one of the best sounds in percussion.Rock on!

Great all-around cymbal

By Uncle Frank

from NYC

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

I use the Paiste Signature 18" fast crash as my main crash, and it fits great whether using it for rock, jazz, blues, or R&B. Like other Paiste Signature crashes, it opens up well whether playing hard or soft, and has just the right amount of decay and shimmer. I've also used it (albeit sparingly) as a light ride, and it sounds nice and silvery for that, too. Like all Sigs, expensive, but worth every penny.

Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

This is beyond studio quality, the who line of signature series are just mind blowing, they are absolutely perfect in every way. The fast crash is prefect for a full, dark, and controlled professional sound, this cymbal is worth every penny, ideal for drummers doing studio work.

Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

I still have a full setup of Zildjian "A"s, but the Paiste Signature series is my go to cymbals. The 16" fast crash was the one that strted my paiste love affair but I have since collected a full setup.

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    play mostly classic rock and blues.....got the Paiste Signatue 15" fast crash to complement the 17, 18, 19 inch full crash & 20 inch full ride Paiste Signature cymbals on my kit....was looking for something a bit softer to use during verses that wouldn't overwhelm or take away from our lead singer...this absolutely fits the bill and gives me a lot more versatility and options in my playing....searching now for a one step down splash below the 15"......not cheap, but no doubt Paiste rules when it comes to a professional sound.....

    Great sounding cymbal!

    By www.myspace.com/southerntrail

    from Moultrie, GA

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    I took a chance and bought the 16" Signature Fast crash cymbal without hearing them. When I got them next to my other crashes and compared them it was obvious how much better this cymbal was than my others(16" Sabian and 16" Paiste Innovation). It quickly became my favorite cymbal. I only wanted to use it instead of the others. I am now in the process of selling the others and getting another Signature Fast Crash. For anyone considering this buy don't hesitate. Exceptionally good sound!

    Great Cymbals

    By Drumdude-0FD5Z

    from Englewood, Ohio

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    I have used these cymbals a lot and love them. They are in my view the best cymbals out there. Especially the signature series. They have a crisp sound to them and add some power to music.they are especially great for the type of music I play which is Gospel/rock. I would highly encourage somebody to buy these cymbals.

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    I have an entire set of Paiste Rude cymbals: 10" splash, 17"thin crash, 18" crash/ride, 20" power ride, 18" china which are very good sounding cymbals, but dark in sound as a full set. I needed a bright spot in my arsonal so I went to Guitar center and tried this fast crash 16". If I had any idea how great these cymbals actually sounded, I might have purchased all signature series instead of Rude cymbals. But I love Rudes and now love signatures too.

    I purchased this cymbal used and at first i wasn't sure about it. That didn't last long. This is an amazing cymbal that goes great with any type of set to play any kind of music. It has a fast brilliant, flashing sound with great response. This is by far the best cymbal of my entire set and I would recommed this to everyone. Buy it; you definitely won't be sorry, the value is great and the sound unbelievable.

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    Two words for you. The Best. No other crash cymbal is like to it on earth! Not as strong as a rock crash, mind you. I believe the thickness is Medium-Thin. But that's not to say it's bad! Good projection characteristics, unlike any other, in fact.

    great for jazz

    By chattanoogadrummer

    from East Ridge, TN

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    Every cymbal on my kit is a paiste signature. I play a variety of music, and for a jazz or fusion gig these cymbals are great! For the heavier handed players, I would not recommend them as they are super thin and I have cracked two of them playing a rock show. I sent them to paiste and they were promptly replaced with brand new serial numbers (they did not just refurb mine) and I had them back in 10 days. Overall, a very musical cymbal with excellent response. Stick sound is nice and delecate with a touch of reverb in the studio, responsive to brushes, great wash when played with mallets, and the crash sound is INTENSE! SPEND THE MONEY! you will not be disappointed. Great product, great company.

    it's the best

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    This is the best crash I can ever find.It may be a bit costly, but I own the 17" and it is really, really good. I can either play it really quiet or really loud and they both sound great! Other crashes cannot be played quiet with the same responsiveness and quality as if it were played louder. Summed up, this crash is very useful. This cymbal looks the best in features compared to other cymbals (better than zildjians and sabians). It is especially great in mallet rolls! This is the best cymbal!

    Crisp, Bright, and Immediate

    By Ugly_Shirts

    from Milwaukee, WI

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

    Paiste's "Fast Crashes" more than live up to their name. I've been using a 14" and a 16" on my kit for about 4 years now, and they are amazing. Fastest response of any cymbal I've played in twenty years. They open up IMMEDIATELY the millisecond you touch them into a gorgeous wash of bright, brassy punctuation. It's really quite amazing. Now, I'm not gonna get down on Zildjian...I use a lot of their cymbals as well...But the overall brightness, clarity, and speed of these cymbals only becomes apparent when you compare them side-by-side with a comparable model...Say, an A-custom crash. Even the bright, thin A-Customs take a split second to reach full wash when compared directly to Paiste's fast crashes. The Paistes are just are RIGHT THERE. There's just no other way to describe it. I used to work at a drum shop, and I sold a TON of these by comparing them directly to Zildjians. You can definitely hear the difference in response time. And, besides sounding great, the Fast Crashes look awesome and are extremely durable. I've been punishing mine through rehearsals and frequent gigs for years and they barely show stick marks.If you're looking for a fast, explosive, bright crash with excellent tonal quality, instantaneous response, and a surprisingly brief decay time, look into Paiste's Fast Crashes. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

        I took a chance and bought this cymbal without having an opportunity to test it live. It sounds great. I don't know if Paiste is consistent from cymbal to cymbal but the one I have sounds fine. Going to a music store and testing out a dozen different 14" cymbals does not seem practical anymore so I was happy this worked out. Plus the 10% off and free shipping...can't beat it.

              I own the 16" & 18" fast crash and I am still amazed at the full range of sound coming from these beautiful cymbals. The 18" has low frequency characteristics almost like a gong, its so full in tonality. The 16" is my main crash but the 18" is there when you need that big full range crash. The 16" replaced a very old shrill sounding 16" A Zildjian I've had since the 60's. The 18" replaced a 18" Paiste 2002 crash that I have owned for 35 years. I know how much people love the 2002 series and I also have 2002 sound edge Hi Hats and 2002 20" china but the crash just can't compare to the Signature Fast Crash in full range of tone. Their expensive but they bring a smile every time I hear them and therefore their worth the cost.
