    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!

    Classic Crash Sound

    By steverok67

    from FL

    See all my reviews

    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.

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

    My friends, this is my favorite cymbal that Zildjian makes. Yes, there are more expensive cymbals, but that does not matter. This cymbal simply says what needs to be said. Great crash with pretty overtones. Buy it, you will not regret it

      A Zildjian 16

      By KC & the Beat

      from Wisconsin

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      Sometimes you just get lucky with a crash cymbal as far as sound & longevity is concerned with some regards, of course, on how you hit them. I owned 4 of these med-thin's during the 80's & 90's as this 16" crash was a must in my set-up. I wouldn't say they were prone to cracking as they served me well through 2 decades. However the sound quality, although always very good, wasn't consistant with each replacement. One crash stood out of the bunch & was indeed special. It instantly opened up and exploded with the bright pitch rising, & then falling again. It was the go to crash to really punctuate a fill or passage. I still consider myself a Zildjian man because of this crash and still mourn it's loss. Hope you get lucky!

      Very Versatile

      from Commerce, GA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I have the 16" and 18" crashes in brilliant finish and have had them for a little over two years. Like I say about most all A Zildjian cymbals these crashes are extremly versatile and I use them in every style I play, which is anywhere from jazz to metal. The bigger you go the warmer and just more of a "Wide open" sound. I don't think you can go wrong with these cymbals.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I own the 18" med thin and the 16" med thin. I use the 16" more but the 18" is more of an epic cymbal. They are both awesome. Kinda pricey. Yeah they are pricey but you get what you pay for.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      Ive Had the 18"er for 8to9 year and It has just rcently got a crack near the bell wich is a tragedy because the older these things get the better they sound I plan on getting another because I wouldnt trade it for anythign else. It has the best sound very tight and sustained sounding. I had the 14" but that was a weak cymbal Definetly not for hard hitters. but any Cymbal from the Avedis line will work for Any talented drummer.

      Most Important Crash

      By Primitive Demand

      from southern, MN

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I own a 16" Medium Thin Zildjian A. No cymbal is as flexible on my kit. It can be played with most any style music; from Industrial to Worship. It is powerful, yet can still be very effective with a subtle touch. It can cut through the loudest of stage noise or be a delicate sound that comes through only on a recording. If you are looking to buy your first "real" cymbal? This is it. If you have a nice set of cymbals, yet lack that one cymbal that can be played anywhere or anytime? This is it.You can take any of my other ten cymbals, just don't touch this one.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium-Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I both the 16" and 18" in the A series cymbal pack. Both are amazing and compliment eachother well. They sound way better than the sound clips by the way. I can see now why others have said they go with any type of music because they sound good at all levels of dynamics.
