After 25 years of drumming I can give you this advice.Do yourselves a favor and don't buy any cheap cymbals or you'll be sick of them in 3 months. I own all paiste signatures and love them more than anything. They are a work of art and sound musical not like a garbage can lid like some lower end cymbals. Save up for the signatures and you'll never have to buy another cymbal ever again.

This is the cymbal that sounds like you taking a rock and throwing it through a window this cymbal is the best Paiste makes as far as im concerned.I own 18" power crash- 18"full crash" - 18" dark energy mark 1 crash. If you are pondering your mind and saying I dont know what crash cymbals to get GET PAISTE SIGNATURE trust me problem solved. and if you want to hear what they sound like watch RUDE AWAKENING MEGADETH Jimmy Degrasso gives a fine display of Paiste signature Cymbals.

Hands down the best cymbal!

By Working Musician-CvIxH

from PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I will make this short and sweet! I have been playing for 30 years. I have had almost every brand cymbal made. The 16 in. Signature power crash is by far the best sounding, clearest and most powerful cymbal made. I also have a 16 in mellow crash for my crash/ride songs. I'm now looking for an 18 power crash. Paiste is the real deal in high end cymbals. Sorry Zildjian.

Perfect

By David-is4bc

from Rochester, MN

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 18" about 7 months ago. I bought it assuming it was the best crash out there, I played, and realized, it is. This cymbal is absolutely perfect. It is very loud and resonates for a long time, which is a good thing. It looks great and blows all other cymbals away. I also have an 18" Zildjian A Custom Crash and a 20" Sabian AAX Metal Crash and this is more articulate and louder than both of them. It has a nice washy/hissy ride sound which is good for soft rock or jazz. The bell is high pitched and doesn't force the entire cymbal to resonate when it is played. If you have the money and want the absolute best cymbals, buy Paiste Signature, you won't be disappointed.

Wow-- Awesome for the price

By Zach Kuhn

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is the best cymbal ever. No question. It is heavy, loud, and has great resonance. If you are going to use these cymbals for fast stuff or 16th notes on the crash, this is your best bet. Take it from me and John Dolmayan.

old faithful

By High Plains Drifter

from Greendale, South Dakota

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I've had my 18 inch since they came out, I had bought the lighter 18 and broke it right away, but the lighter model sounded better. I replaced it with the power because I was in a metal band at the time and wanted "the best" in my kit. It is still one of two 18's I use in my kit today. The other is an 18 Alpha Thin from the early 90's. Don't overlook the Alphas used, they are the best sound vs. dollar cymbal ever made before or since. I picked some alphas over anything else at times when cash was no problem to buy what I wanted. The 18 signature is broad spectrum, as is the trademark of the series. There is no better cymbal to use mattets on. Mallets vibrate cymbals for all they are worth, and the signatures will just keep giving. Excellent in symphonic work. In rock, the 18 power, when smashed with a stick, is the loudest 18 I have ever encountered, even more than a rude. Good classy revenge on gutarists. AC/DC's "live at donnington" is a great visual and audio look at what signatures can do in rock. For jazz, the 18 power is the perfect ride, and is unobtrusive in a small club scenerio. Worth the cost.

Worth Every Penny!

By IconForHire

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

Do yourself a favor if your a drummer and buy this cymbal...period. I used the 18" in the studio and loved it so much i bought both the 19" and 20" and haven't looked back since. They are loud enough for any live situation but musical enough for any studio. There are very very few cymbals if any that can do both these things. And lastly, but more importantly, not only are they durable as heck but they sound absolutely beautiful. Take my word for it, order the cymbal, get the cymbal, play the cymbal, be happy:)

18

By dcarey35

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

Got this a few weeks ago in the 18". The Signature line by Paiste blows me away. This particular cymbal has awesome tone and musicality, while being LOUD when needed. It is very crisp and cutting, a higher pitch cymbal.If you never play loud music, you probably don't want this cymbal as it sounds best when you lay into it - but that doesn't mean it's not a 5 star cymbal... that's what you expect from a "Power" crash.Soon I'll get the 18" Full Crash to go with it - Paiste's got a life long purchaser right now :)

By SKD Drummer

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I love this cymbal, the best crash out there (well it should be for the price we have to pay but; I believe it is rather weak for its price. I have two they both cracked. Regardless they sound amazing.

Best crash and worth every dollar

By Rudy

from Charlesotn, SC

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

These are the best sounding crash cymbals I could find. I was looking around, my dad works at a music store...and I tried tons of cymbals. The paistes although more expensive sounded the best. So what if it took two extra weeks of me working, it was worth every dollar. I have the 16 and 18 in crashes and they are both amazing. I have also taken a liking to the 20 which i might purchase soon.

very loud and musical

By alayos

from whitehouse, TX

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is the perfect crash for my style of playing. It is sufficiently loud to be heard over driving metal riffs, yet has very musical qualities that are rare at such a high volume. I own the 18" and will soon be buying the 16" and the 20". This cymbal also sounds suprisingly good when played softly.

a paiste built to torture

By catch

from england

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I've played paiste's ever since i found a used 602 and fell in love, but it broke my heart a month later, cracked. I switched brands, cracked. I play hard, and when financially could, I switched to all signatures, but I cracked them. Then I found the power. That's all I play. If you play hard and need a cymbal that can keep up with you, this is it. look no further.

Without a doubt the best sounding cymbals hands down. Bright and warm, with cut galore. If you play agressive or louder music, this will do the job and also sounds good when hit softer, too!

Loud and crisp

By Osoidlehands

from Encino, CA

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

It may be related to the Z custom because of its ability to pierce through high volume situations, but it SOUNDS better than any other high-volume cymbal. What it projects is not not purely cutting pain, but a crisp, musical and UNIQUE sound. I love both of mine.

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

i have played on a lot of different cymbals (basically all the major brands) and paiste is by far my number 1 pick! They do not accept any corruptions in their cymbals and that is why i like them. this cymbal is my main crash on my drums and i love it. i play jazz, rock, christian, and punk.

Own Nothing But The Best

By CJBHairenut

from bethlehem pa

Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

I've broken every brand of cymbal at least twice in my life, but all of the paiste brand lasted at least 7 years or better.And as opposed to the big Z and his brother, sabian, whose products lasted from ONE WEEK, to six months. I don't beat my gear, just play A LOT, and PAISTE is all that cuts the mix. CJBHairenut
