              Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

              I'll start by admitting that I'm a die-hard Sabian guy, having turned my back on Zildjian years ago, but I really like the re-engineered A's! This model, in this size, has to be one of the best all-around workhorse cymbals in history! From jazz to rock to death metal, or even as a suspended cymbal in a symphonic setting, it's incredibly versatile. If you're a gigging drummer who plays a lot of different styles, I'd highly recommend it. I think the feel of this cymbal is closer to the old block-lettered A's from the 80's and 90's than any new Zildjian I've ever played, and it has a certain "sweetness" to its sound that somehow disappeared from the A Zildjian line over the years. I'm glad it's back, though!

                Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

                The Zildjian A Series has always been at the top of the industry in quality, performance and value.
                The Zildjian A Series 16 inch Medium-Thin Crash is the best all around crash you can own. I have owned a lot of them over the years. I have to single that one out as one that shouldn't let you down, as long as Zildjian never compromises it's quality. I did a review on the Paiste Signature Series Full Crash, I still think it is the best that I've heard, but if you don't have that much to spend, the 16 inch Zildjian Medium-Thin crash is the next best thing. I have both and they both sound fantastic.

                    Great Sound! These crashes are so versatile. They can be used for any style of music. I used them in Jr. High and High School in our Jazz Bands, and they worked great. If you want a sweet crash sound that you can use for anything, these are just for you!

                    It's a Zildjian...what can I say?

                    Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

                    Love the sound. Love the shine.
                    I love the sound of these symbols. I had one on the left and just had to get a second for the right side. They obviously don't have exactly the same pitch but they are just close enough yet just far enough different.
                    Been using the forst for about a year. Only cleaned it once and it stll shines like new.
                    Condiering the overall price of symbols, this is definitely worth it.

                    Classic Crash Sound

                    By steverok67

                    from FL

                    Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

                    Although Zildjian has, in recent decades, expanded their portfolio to include multiple lines, these A Zildjians remain their best cymbals, overall, in my opinion. The medium-thin crashes give that classic crash sound that goes with anything. I own the 16" and 18", and they simply do the job, and always sound right. Of course, there are many types of cymbals to try, but the Zildjian A medium-thin crash is a proven winner, in my book.
