Crash help.

Postby HardcoreDrummer » Mon May 24, 2010 7:54 am

I play metal and right play on two Paiste 16 inch crashes. They sound good, but i want some more range, so I'm in the market for a good 18. Something nice and full.

Any brand is good, name doesn't matte. I only go off sound.

I absolutely love my Sabian 19" Stage Crash. It has a big, full sound, but even in a recording where only one mic is being used for drums AND a guitar, it doesn't overpower everything else, and it has a nice, glassy sound.

I think I've decided to go with Sabian AAX Xplosion.

Good choice. I have one, but I'd like to replace it. But for now, it definitely gets the job done.

My recommendation for a brutal 18 with a versatile range of use is the Paiste New Signature Dark Energy. AWE-----SOME!!!

I recomend going to a shop and trying some out. Only you can decide what sounds good to you. Check out http://mycymbal.com/ for some good videos to narrow your search.
