See All Sabian Crash Cymbals

      Sabian Legacy Crash cymbals radiate with a dark, punchy resonance.

      With dark, low-end response and much volume potential the highly responsive Sabian Legacy Crash Cymbal can play loudly but is always musical.

      As Dave Weckl describes, "Legacy is the darker side of my sound. These cymbals are vibrant, trashy and beautiful, all at once. 'Tone Texture' is what makes Legacy special. These cymbals have a ton of dark, musical color that encompasses the full tonal spectrum but digs way down deep." Weckl characterizes the Legacy Crashes as "punchy but complex." 2-year limited warranty.

        Comments about Sabian Legacy Crash Cymbal:

        This crash is easily one of my favorites in a long list of Sabian crashes I own. It is trashy yet in a pleasing way, and for those who may run from those type of cymbals this will be the one to change your heart. Like an Ozone with a slightly longer sustain (though it is a fast crash) and a bright high end that helps it cut at loud volumes. It also sings with soft taps. It is truly the perfect secondary crash and maybe main crash in the right instance. Legacy is the better half of Weckl's sound for sure.

        Simply Amazing!


        from Ann Arbor, MI

        Comments about Sabian Legacy Crash Cymbal:

        I have both sizes, and they are just awesome! They have a very dark tone, with a just a bit of rawness and "trash" to them. They respond super quick like an HHX Evolution, but have a darkness and "dirtiness" to them. Imagine one of the O-Zone crashes, but less harsh, more mellow and "real crash" sounding. It is very hard to find an 18" crash (especially a darker cymbal) that doesn't sound gongy/overpowering when hit. This 18" is sweet and never gongy, and isn't overpowering at all (thought it can still get plenty loud). My only complaint is the lack of sizes to choose from. I wish they made these in 16 thru 14 as well. The HHX Extreme crashes are much in the same vein of these and match up sonically well. Just awesome, you cannot go wrong with these crashes!

        Very different and very exciting!


        from Wisconsin

        Comments about Sabian Legacy Crash Cymbal:

        I added this to my collection in may '06 and it actually replaced a Zildjian A Custom China. This cymbal spoke to me immediately upon playing it and hearing it. It was a sound I had in my head for quite a long time and, when I heard this, it nailed me! It has qualities unlike others I own in that it has a definite China flavor but with much more versatility. Dynamically speaking, it is gorgeous at very soft levels to nasty at very loud! It blended beautifully with Zildjian Constantinoples and Ks and with its own counterpart the O-Zone crash.This was an exciting addition to my burgeouning cymbal collection.
