Dumb, I know. But Is a Paiste Full Crash their way of saying medium weight? In all my years I've never ever played a Paiste crash cymbal or even had one in front of me.

Eh...it happens to be about a medium weight...
I tihnk the name aims more at describing the attack/resonant characteristics.

If it helps, you can go to Paiste's website and they have some much more detailed info. If you look under Signature crashes, for instance, then click on the Full crash, there will be a description on the left side of the screen. First it will list the sizes available currently, and their relative weight. They do this for all of their cymbals.

sigs have full crash ( just their regular crashes in my mind) and powers. now they added the heavy fulls, which i believe are their medium crashes in the signature line.

Full Crash, Fast Crash, Crystal Crash, Mellow Crash, Power Crash..... not necessarily in any certain order. Lovely cymbals too.

The name tells you what it is:
Fast Crash - Fast attack and decay
Full Crash - Full sound, medium weigh and longer decay
Power Crash - uuhhh powerful
Mellow - I'm sure you see the trend.

We thought that giving the cymbals a descriptive name rather than an arbitrary weight measurement would be more interesting to drummers. Not that there is anything wrong with "medium" "heavy", etc...we do that too!

I'm going to ask this for everyone's benefit; I'm assuming you are a Paiste Representative or work for them in some manner. Am I correct?
