              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

                    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.
