      Love at first strike

      By Sean X

      from OKC

      Comments about Paiste Traditional Thin Crash:

      I went to my local music store and hit every crash cymbal at least 5 times trying to find the sound I was looking for. When I hit this Paiste, that was it. It blew my mind and I had to have it. Now I'm thinking I need to save up my cash and go with a full Paiste setup. I love this cymbal so very much.

      Expensive, but worth it!

      By WV DrumBear

      from Charleston, WV

      Comments about Paiste Traditional Thin Crash:

      If you're looking for a crash that's a bit "different", well, here's your beast. Dark, earthy, washy, rideable (great for brushes). Very "Elvin Jones". Not at all a "modern" sound. I put it up on the stand, against two other Paiste signature crashes, one Dimensions crash, and one A. Zildjian, and after about two hours of playing, fell in love with it.

      Comments about Paiste Traditional Thin Crash:

      Perfect for jazz, especially with rivets. It has a majestic sound that blends with any music. I use it for everything from punk to jazz.
