      Ive played signature cymbals for over 20 yrs. Everything from hihats, splashes, crashes , china`s, and rides. Their sound characteristics are unparalleled and the quality is superior. For the reviewers who say these break too easy, practice a little more hand & stick technique. Im using sigs that are close to 20 years old and they show no signs of breaking. I play everything from progressive rock, fusion, jazz, country, latin, and r&b. Never had an issue. Simply the best!!

          Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

          I own 16" and 18" full signature crashes. They are the best cymbals I've played. They cut through nicely when playing rock. They sound good for jazz. They are great all around cymbals. I keep them clean with Paiste cleaner. I will not allow debris to dull the sound; especially when cymbals are this expensive.

            This cymbal projects beautiful tones at every volume level, it even has nice ride-ability. Full, lush, crash that brings out the body of harmonics it has.

              Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

              I've played many cymbals over the years but there is something special about the sound of the Paiste signatures that told me I had to have them. As soon as I hit the 18" full crash, I knew it would be mine. It cuts through loud rock music and sounds great. My old Sabians would get lost in the mix a lot of the time. Fortunately, I was able to get two for the price of one at a local shop.

                Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

                I've been playing drums since 1975, I've owned pretty much every cymbal brand there is... This is my all time favorite cymbal. I went into the "Cymbal Vault" at Guitar center and picked apart all the crash cymbals they had, the Paiste Full Crash (mine is 18") really stood on its own. It's just a good clean crash with no ugly overtones, very crisp in my opinion. My AAX sounds like a trash can lid compared to the Paiste full crash.

                The bad, I've have heard that if you're a hard hitter, you will break it.. I hit hard but I purchased a three year warranty if and when I break it. I'm willing to take the chance

                  Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

                  All my cymbals are Sabian! I wanted to add a brighter crash and began my search. I wanted to try Sabian Vault 19" crash but the music store didn't have it available. So I tried out the Sabian AAX - Explosions, 16,17,18 & 19". Non of them did anything for me. So I started testing oout other brands Zildjian and finally Paiste. The second I heard the Paiste Signature 19" I fell in love with it. I returned home and told my wife I found a sweet cymbal but it wasn't a Sabian and it was expensive. She said it's your birthday, buy the cymbal. So later on that day I returned back to the store and purchased it, it was hard spending that kind of money. There is no doubt, this cymbal is worth the investment, no regrets. So please take my advise, don't listen to anyone, just go and listen to these cymbals yourself and you will hear the difference. If you are fortunate enough, you will have the money to buy one.

                  Everyone is right, I've owned AAX, AA, A Custom, A, Z Custom, K Custom, Paragon, and others. I have 7 crashes in my set now and the Paiste 16" Signature Series Full Crash is absolutely the greatest. You get what you pay for. Thanks, Paiste, thanks Musician's Friend.

                  The go-to cymbal

                  By Anonymous

                  from Undisclosed

                  Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

                  I have sampled many different cymbal sounds, ranging from top of the line Sabian and Zildjian to Turkish made Bosphorus and Masterwork lines. None of them compares to the Paiste signature line. I have always used an 18" Paiste sig. full crash in my setup because it does the job - for every job. My other cymbals rotate in and out between different Paiste models and lines, but this one always stays. Hands down the best cymbal made.

                  Hands Down - The BEST!

                  Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

                  I will make this short and sweet! If you want the best sounding cymbal money can buy, look no further. The Paiste sigs are there. I'm a working drummer with 30 years experience and have used them all. I was always left wanting just a little more. I had a REALLY hard time paying the big bucks for a signature but decided to about a year ago. I got the 16 in mellow crash. Done, sold and story over. I now have a 16 in power and an 18 in power. Get out of the way! they and the best sounding, clearest and loudest cymbals made (except the Rude for volume). Same your pennies for a few more weeks or months and do yourself a favor. Buy Signatures!

                  Excellent Quality Cymbal Well Worth The Price

                  By xCarpePADrumsx

                  from Bloomsburg, PA

                  Comments about Paiste Signature Full Crash:

                  Since I was introduced to Paiste through a representative at a local drum shop, I've been using the 17" Full Crash at all of my shows. It offers a very clear, very defined tone that blows away any other cymbal I have on my kit, any I've always received compliments on it after every gig. Am excellent choice for a musician who is out there playing shows and trying to gain resignation and can afford the expense; more so if you want to be sure you'll have a quality piece of equipment you can rely on night after night of performing. I'd would recommend this cymbal to anyone who wants to see a definitive difference in the construction of their set.
