The history of cymbals goes way, way back, and it's a timeline of constant refinement. Steady advances in metallurgy have made cymbals better - including the ability to make them thinner and thinner over time. Today, that means you can get your hands on the paper-thin crash cymbals here in this section. And if you're the sort of drummer who wants an amazing blend of speed and sound, that's good news! The thickness of a crash directly impacts the tone and response: as a rule of thumb, thinner cymbals have fuller voices with faster attack and decay. So if those are the top traits on your wish list, you've come to the right place.
Every aspect of a cymbal has an impact on its sound, and that even includes the luster of its finish. This is especially true for crash cymbals, so when you set out to find the perfect one, you might actually want to consider shopping by shininess. A brilliant cymbal like the Paiste PST 8 Reflector Cajon Crash will give you a mix that's crisp and clean. On the other hand, if you prefer your tone dark and raw, take a look at some duller finishes such as the Istanbul Agop Signature Crash Cymbal or the Meinl Byzance Vintage Series Vintage Crash. Prefer something exotic? How about the Zildjian Azuka Latin Multi-Crash Hand and Stick, or the Sabian AAX El Sabor Picante Hand Crash Cymbal?
It's all about the sound and playing style you want for your cymbals, so don't be afraid to think outside the box. However you want to play is the right way if it works for you. Be traditional and play your paper-thin crash cymbals together with bass drum strikes, or break the mold and explore your own signature method for blending them into the mix. The choice is yours to make, just like the choice of which cymbal to pick up in the first place.
