The character of a crash cymbal is easy enough to guess just from the name. These cymbals deliver heaps of volume and projection, along with their signature sound that's a cornerstone in the rhythm of songs from virtually every genre. And since heavier cymbals produce more volume and sustain, there's no shortage of drummers who feel that when it comes to crash cymbals, heavier is better. But maybe you take a slightly more restrained approach: that heavier is better to a point, and you'd prefer to stop short of the absolute heaviest so you can hold onto a bit of precision and speed. In that case, one of these medium-heavy crash cymbals is probably the right choice for you.

They'll still give you the lion's share of the power you'd get from an even heavier cymbal, and in exchange for staying one rung down from the top of the weight ladder, you'll find a cymbal that's on a slightly tighter leash. If your stage mics are sensitive or if your vocalist doesn't like drowning in a sea of sustain, that's a good thing! And make no mistake - you still have a ton of variety to choose from here. With options ranging from the Zildjian A Series Rock Crash Cymbal and Meinl Mb20 Medium Heavy Crash Cymbal to the Paiste Rude Wild Crash Cymbal and Sabian AAX Aero Crash Brilliant, you're free to go as traditional or as dramatic as you want.

If you're stumped about which medium-heavy crash cymbals to put on your wish list, try taking a moment to check out some of the reviews and ratings. Use them to get a sense for how each cymbal performs, but don't let anyone tell you which one is the best fit for your setup - because you're the only one who gets to make that call! Take your time, and making the right choice will come more easily than you might think... and then you'll be ready to see what your weighty new crash cymbal can really do.
