      OVERVIEW

      Designed with the Rush drummer!

      Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, Sabian Paragon Series Cymbals blend two styles of lathing for a very balanced cymbal tone. Pinpoint lathing creates a narrower groove for a fast, lively response on the top, while the traditional AA lathing creates a wider groove for a fuller, richer tone on the bottom side.

      The Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash is a medium-weight cymbal with large bell boosting volume and power for fast, explosive response.

      i give it a 9 overall simply because of the price point. however, even full price isn't a loss on your money. maybe i'm just too cheap. but the quality is definitely there.
      I own the 20 inch crash. I love how versatile this cymbal is. I play with church bands as well as rocking out on my own. you can thrash it, babie it, hit the bell, hit the edge, and everything in between. this thing will give you so much response. it will cut through the loudest music, but you can hit it super soft and still get a quality tone out of it-unlike the cheaper cymbals where when you hit it lightly, it just sounds like nasty metal. this is truly a thing of beauty. I also love the long sustain. if this is your only cymbal, long sustain doesn't necessarily work in ALL applications, but you can still make it work. it's long sustain really makes it nice for softer, more intimate music, but when you are thrashing, it blends well with the rest of your music and if you end your playing using it, it kind of brings the whole thing to a nice close, easily sustaining the awesomeness you just played into a nice peacful, "aaahhhhh, that was nice"
      you can hit this ALL DAY LONG and it won't break. nuff said.
      I can't say much for the value since i bought mine used. however, it looks brand spanking new. i can't say i would pay full price for this. However, if you buy this cymbal, even at this price, it will definitely stand out as one of the best in your group. but if the features is possesses is what you're looking for, then the price you pay will definitely deliver the product you want.

      I was really dissapointed in this crash. I've been a Sabian user since I started playing 17 years ago. I have the Paragon 22" ride, the 14" hi hats, and the 8" splash. They sound great. I bought the 18" crash and I am completely dissapointed. It's thicker than I thought and has a tinny/metally sound that just has too much prolonged ringing. It just doesn't have that crisp crashing sound I expected when I saw Rush live. I still say the best crash cymbal on the market today by any brand is the AAXplosion or the HHXplosion. Ironically with Neil's line of cymbals, I think the 18" fits in to be used with a metal drummer.

      Crash made for arenas

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            I have the 18" and I just want to warn people, this is a very loud cymbal that you have to hit hard. Its a very thick piece of metal which is awesome for durability and projection, but if you are playing in smaller bars it may be too much. It makes sense... Neil plays in giant arenas and doesn't have to hold back and wants the loudest most powerful cymbals money can buy. When I play a big outdoor show I'm glad I have it. When I play a place where the PA volume isn't cranked, it seems like a bit too much. But I've always liked thin cymbals that exploded with very little stick velocity. This is a quality item tho.. it will not break on you for a long long time.

            Paragon Crashes

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            Any Paragon is worth all the money. Don't fall for the whole good sounding ceap cymbals because these are the best way to go. Neil wouldn't let these pass through if they werent the best sounding cymbals, which they totally are the best. After buying all these cymbals, next purchase is Neils kit and then JBL Line Arrays!

            AWESOME DEEP DARK CRASH

            By 

            from Tulsa OK

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            Every set, I believe, needs at least a great high pitch crash, 14 inch - 15 inch, a great medium pitch, 16 - 17 inch, and a great low pitch crash, 18 inch. I have an 18 inch Neil Peart Paragon crash and it has a great deep, dark, exotic crash effect. I also think that it makes a great ride cymbal and the bell is one of the very best that you can buy. I have 16 cymbals in my set and am really happy to include this one as my low pitch crash and very most versatile cymbal. IT ROCKS.

            I had a 16 and an 18 and there was not that much difference in tone or projection so I kept the 16. Very nice. A keeper!!

            It's okay...

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            Bought this cymbal thinking it would hold up to my style of playing, lasted about 6 months, but during those six months (which included a tour) the thing sounded great... It didn't go to well with my Z custom, but it is a good sounding cymbal, again, don't get it if you play hard... other wise the tone can't be beat... i now use an A custom ping ride for a crash... and its excellent... wuhan's 20'' ride makes a great crash too, without spending all that cash.

            Good crashes if your made of money

            By 

            from Washington State

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            Had the 16"+18" crash, both cracked. The 18" acted like like a AAX for about 6 months and then lost tone and got a crack until it doesn't sound like anything only two years after buying it. My 16" I got about a year ago and I was never really impressed with it. Did NOT match the other at all, and now it's getting a nice little crack by the bell. PERFECT timing for a musician about to go on tour... 18" was impressive when it was in her prime though...

            Love the 16

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            Just purchased the 16" Paragon crash. Blends well with my other cymbals (Sabian and Zildjian). A great compliment to the 16" Sabian AAX crash and my vintage 18" Zildjian medium crash! Really "expresses" well. Has just the right sound for certain places in the song. Give this one a listen (use your own sticks) and I believe you'll agree this is one fine sounding crash cymbal!

            I'm a huge Zildjian fan, but these paragon hi-hats from Sabian have me drooling, thinking about a couple more crashes maybe. I love the warmth and the depth these hats give to my kit....they have no harshness, like most hats out there.

            sabian paragon 16

            Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Crash Cymbal:

            I bought the 16" and 18" paragon crashes and I couldn't be more satisfied.They have an excellent sound and seem very durable. The quality is definitely there. Some of these clowns reporting cracking cymbals obviously don't know what they're doing,... improper technique. I have been playing for almost 18 yrs. and have NEVER CRACKED ANY CYMBAL. These Paragons should easily last any drummer that knows what they're doing.These Paragons are worth the money, hands down.
