Seriously mate, read your posts, you are coming across as being dickish for no reason and saying things that don't need to be said. Unless you intend to...in which case, my bad.

mist x cymbals are some of the loudest I've ever heard and they can be made thin as you want them. I have a thin crash that is very loud for its weight. personally I've never liked thick cymbals. my aaxplosion is as loud as any z custom I've ever heard and its a medium thin and very musical.

Oh, and the title of this thread is "loud ass metal cymbals" so don't get offended when people give their opinion of these "loud ass metal cymbals".

I find that 2002 Paiste 18" Crash is far louder than my 16" AAX Metal Crash.

The only thing is that it's a bright and shimmering cymbal, compared to the dark tones of the AAX, so it might not be what you're looking for.

I dont like noise and i don't like noisy cymbals. the zildjian z's and paiste rudes seem like someones idea of a weird joke to me. "hey lets make these really really thick cymbals that you have to hit impractically hard to just get to open up)

Theres soo many things i see wrong with making a cymbal that thick. I'll name some of them now

1. Like i already said you have to hit them soo hard to get them to open up. they sound like trash can lids when you play them softly
2. they break under theyre own force from vibration
3. they make cymbal swells sound like crap and near impossible to play
4. since you have to hit them so hard to get them to open up, by the time they actually open up, theyre already somewhere around theyre max volume. so theyre dynamic range is terrible


I always tend to hear people complaing about how thicker cymbals always break and crack easier becuase of the way their made. What's the matter with you people? I've not alway but for most of the time have played cymbals on the heavier side for years, and none have broken or cracked on me yet, even after years of constant playing. Maybe some people just don't know how to mount their cymbals right, their either on the stand to tight or to loose, and you are not hitting them properly. It's also not nice to bash people's opinions on way they think of certain cymbals, some people like the thicker cymbals, and its' all about personal preference, which everyone has. And as for the thing with opening up and dynamic range, the reason why you play drums is to be musically creative and to have various cymbals of different kinds of to make the sounds that are needed to be made. People on here are talking to me as if all I have are thick and loud cymbals, and I never said that. It's not ALWAYS safe to assume things from what they say; and to put words in people's mouths is bad. Play whatever you think sounds good and musical, that's what I live by.



Well, Ok lets look at this, the post does say LOUD ASS METAL CYMBALS....which gives the impression that you are not overly concerned with playing dynamics other than loud and are probably a hrad hitter. Anthrax had a great line in one of their tunes...."think before you speak or suffer for your words." - Caught in a Mosh I believe it was. I have been playing Metal for all of my playing career and I don't use any of those cymbals ...I use Zildjian K's and A's , and I have never had a problem being heard . Playing isn't about being the loudest. it's about using skill and technique to bring sounds to life so that they express what you want to say at all levels. I do agree that people should experiment with a variation, but people here get way to attached to the thought that there is only one type of inmstrument for a specific type of music....and that is so off the mark.

Don't think anyone has mentioned this yet but thicker cymbals makes your sticks last shorter.

The trashcan picture says it all btw.

Im not really a fan of any cymbal that has metal in it or is designed for "metal".

Zildjian A's and A customs all the way. Im also a huge fan of Paiste ride cymbals. That rude mega bell is the ideal ride for a metal drummer.

I played a 19" RUDE Ride/Crash as my main ride when playing metal. Worked GREAT.
