      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.

      Will never have Paiste cymbals

      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

          If you are breaking cymbals of any kind, you are abusing them and obviously do not have a clue about what you are doing. Keep hitting them as hard as you can champ…

            Just used these on a studio session, and they were absolutely fantastic! Great sounding cymbals with good feel. They were cutting but not abrasive, sitting right in the mix with the rest of the instruments. I've never used a 14" crash before because most of them sound like big splashes. The one that I used was simply awesome.

              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.....

              14" paiste fast crash

              Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

              needed cymbal size and sound not as large as 16". the cymbal has a beautiful sound with rapid decay. good with other brand cymbals and has just the voice that is neede at times.

              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!

              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.

              Great all-around cymbal

              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:

              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.

              The right tool for the job

              By 

              from Twinsburg, OH

              Comments about Paiste Signature Fast Crash:

              I needed a quick, dry, full voice on my kit to complement my 21 K Custom Special Dry Ride, and choce an 18" Signature Fast Crash. It's my first Paiste, and the Mrs thought it was great on the first strike. I'm primarily a jazz/blues/Oldies player, and don't need to cut through Marshall stacks with no miking. As to the naysayers on this cymbal, yes Paistes are terrific-looking plates. But you need to use the right tool--properly--for the job. This is NOT a basher cymbal; it's a thin one, designed for an acoustic accent. I agree A or Z Customs are great when you need to shake up your bass player, and want to whale on the bronze. But for jazz, oldies, and other uses requiring a musical tone, the Paiste Signatures are superb, and will last within the uses for which they are designed.
