Lets face it drummers love crash cymbals. Is there anything more fun than buying a new crash? Find the exact right sound you’re looking for here.

All drummers have their own idea of how a crash should sound and quite often will want several so that they have something for every situation. Some are looking for the dry and dark almost trashy sound of Meinl Byzance Dark or the cut and definition from something like a Sabian AAX-Plosion crash but for others it’s the sophistication of Istanbul Agop’s Traditional range that will win.

Brass crash cymbals are the cheapest type available but wont dent and bend like starter cymbals can.

Mid range cymbal ranges like the PST7 and PST8 are generally made from B8 bronze. More expensive ranges are generally made from B20 bronze giving them a little bit more cut and projection.

Hand crafted crash cymbals such as Sabian’s HHX, Istanbul Agop’s traditional range, Paiste’s 2002 range and Meinl’s Byzance Traditional range are generally seen as the highest quality available. Hand hammering techniques bring out depth and darkness that other methods can’t achieve. However machine finished B20 crash cymbals such as the Sabian AAX range and the Istanbul Agop Xist range tend to be a bit brighter and aggressive than their hand hammered counterparts. This makes them great for rock, punk and metal. The Xist range in particular is priced like a mid range crash cymbal but sounds like pro level making it a great value choice.
