I would say a good splash is one that is quick, has a fast decay, and bright.

Like the others said.. I mixed my cymbals quite a bit though, so I have 1 bright and 1 dark splash.. My favorite splash is 8" A custom and 11" K hybrid! They're great splashes!

ok just a question, saw this in guitar center, they had a paragon splash with an attachment on it off of an already existing cymbal stand.

so does this stem fit on any cymbal stand? and if it does, does it work for other splashes?

My personal favorite is that one that makes a vague 'Splash!" sound.

It's pretty cool.

splashes you obviously want something splashy, quick, loud..
dark or bright is up to you
i like dark cymbals, but a lot of people like bright cymbals

hats you want quick chick with the foot pedal, nice stick definition, crisp when closed..
wash when open, again dark or bright is up to you



I like mixing mine up. I don't like huge kits but I like mixing cymbals for the sound I'm trying to get.

There are a lot of splash sounds, but my favorites are the UFIP Class and Natural series. Best splashes ever, IMHO. The Rotocasting makes them more durable, too.

Recently I aquired a Silken Asaph series 10" slpash. I will say that it is one of the most musical cymbals on my current set up. Very good for rock or heavier applications, and compliments my A customs nicely. One of my favorites by far. P.O.Y!

I have had a Sabian AA 10" for a while that sounds really good and recently bought a 10" Zildjian A custom that i like as well. As long as you buy the higher end series splashes i really have not heard a bad one from any cymbal company the bad sounding splashes i have come across are the lower end series like the B8's and XZT's or ZBT's.

I just recently added 3 Wuhan splashes from their brand new series called the New Traditional series. They are outstanding. These are so much better than any previous Wuhan cymbals it's not funny. Bright explosive with a quick decay IMO exactly what a splash should be. check them out www.cymbalsandsnares.com
