      Big sound for accents that really cut!

      The heaviest crash, producing the strongest crash sound and longest sustain. Overall higher in pitch, well suited for loud situations where projection is needed.


      This is the crowning touch to complete your kit. Put it in the cart!

      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.

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!

      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.

      18

      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 :)

      Worth Every Penny!

      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:)

      Paiste Signatures - Nothing Compares

      By Jp

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Paiste Signature Power Crash Cymbal:

      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.

      Perfect

      By David-is4bc

      from Rochester, MN

      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.

      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.
