Medium Thin Effect Cymbals
Not every effect cymbal needs to stand on its own, either - sometimes they can go hand-in-hand with a different instrument altogether. Take the Sabian Hoop Crasher for instance. This isn't a standalone cymbal: instead, it's an add-on for a snare drum that blends its own sound together with the snare for a percussion combo unlike any other. Of course, if you would prefer an effect cymbal that claims a stand all to itself, that's an option as well. Just check out the Paiste PST X Swiss Flanger Stack for one great suggestion: it's a pair of perforated Swiss cymbals that can actually be adjusted by tightening and loosening them to choose from a range of sounds that are crashy at one extreme, and tight like a hi-hat at the other.
When all is said and done, there's only one person who's in charge of your percussion setup: you. Nobody else can tell you which cymbals to add to your collection, and your personal sound and style is up to you to determine. So picking up one of these medium-thin effects cymbals is totally your call, and if you want to really flex your individuality muscle on the stage, you can find a few amazing ways to get the job done right here in this section.
