Medium Heavy Effect Cymbals
If your other cymbals are in this same weight class, it makes a lot of sense to choose medium-heavy effect cymbals for a seamless overall sound. On the other hand, you could also go for cymbals from this section if the rest of your set is lighter, and you want the extra volume and sustain to help them stand out so their effects will be more dramatic. Exactly how you use them is up to you to decide. One thing's for sure: if you want to create a unique percussion sound to help distinguish yourself from other drummers, the creative use of effect cymbals is a great way to make it a reality.
What does that mean for you? Does it mean injecting a melodic quality with the Sabian HH Radia Cup Chimes (originally designed for Terry Bozzio)? Does it mean adding some dynamic white noise using the Sabian Chopper? Or you could go a little lower-key with the Paiste 2002 Accent Cymbal (or two of them in a pair). Your own creativity is really the only limit on what these medium-heavy effect cymbals can do for your sound, so don't be afraid to flex that artistic muscle and take them out for a spin!
