      Im a drummer that is on a budget b/c im 14 and dont have a job and i only get money here and there from small jobs and lawn cuts ect.....but the zildjian A series is an awesome series!!...my dad's friend owns a couple and ive played on them and they are great: bright sound, nice finish, awesome tone!!! And the A series is not that exspensive of a series compared to the Paiste Signatue Series..so overall i think this will be a great cymbal for me since im sellin my PS2 to buy it. lol

      I use the A Custom line for my kit and have a 16" and 18" crash. So I was looking to add something with a crisp high pitch crash sound. After lisening to a ton of audio clips I thought this cymbal was the one. It's described a "THIN" but I was so wrong. Honestley it sounds like a gong. I am sending it back and I went to a brick and mortar store and tested them in person. I ended with a 15" A custom crash. Maybe I dont understand the product line but the A's have rips on them making them deeper sounding and thats not what I like. It sounded close to the zbt's I sold for the A customs. Bottom line is its best to hear the cymbal in person. One other note is the place I went had two of the same cymbals and they both sounded different. I understand maybe a slight difference but one was much lower sounding. Even the store clerk was shocked.

        Beautiful Crash

        By RootsRadish

        from On an island in the middle of the Pacific.

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

        This crash is very versatile and speaks with a quick crisp bright voice that has dark overtones and fades quickly. The Avedis thin crashes are quite a bit more responsive than the thicker crashes and, as I've said, decay faster. This cymbal has that clasic sound.

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

        I have owned my 16" thin crash for quite some time and can truthfully say it is an awesome sounding crash. It is the epitome of what a crash cymbal shoud be. The A series costs more that the ZBTs or ZHTs, but remember, you get what you pay for, especially with musical instruments like drums and cymbals. Save your pennies and buy the A series Zildjians. You won't regret it. These things will last and sound amazing for years to come, and are professional grade cymbals.

        Great Cymbal

        By Drummer Man Jeff

        from Ruby, MI

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

        I bought this cymbal used about three years ago and it finally cracked but I do thrash on it. Personally, my whole band and I think it still sounds better than my ZBTs and my ZXTs. It's an all around great cymbal. It works for anything from classic rock to heavy metal.

        I bought the 15 inch thin crash to replace the ZBT's that I cracked :( I got at and it sounds so muck better the my old ZBT's. Cast cymbals have very different sound then sheet and well... I didn't really know that. But anyway it's now my main crash and it is awsome.

        Totally Versitile

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

        I've had my 16" nearly a year now, and it still sounds great. I've played on it pretty hard and havn't found the slightest problem yet. It really explodes during the hard playing, and, especially with some fresh sticks, sounds really gentle and soft. I recomend any size in this A series for any style of drumming. This cymbal defines 'crash'
