sum of the best trashy cymbals are cheaper end ones like paste alpha and meinl classics, which are really cheap, i think its the paste 501 or sumfin but they make a 14" china which sounds great

Dude if you looking for trashy i know the best. Or at least i think it is. Sabians HHX line. Check out John Blackwell's setup and also Jojo Mayer's signature Fierce Crash is crazy awesome man.

I bought a 16" zildjian zht efx cymbal. it hase a bunch of holes and 3 large slots in it. I was gonna get another A Custom, but loved the sound of this. Kinda trashy but crisp. Sounds a lot like my china. About $80 I think. A must have.

I just played the Fierce Crash in the store and am seriously considering getting one. Perfect blend of trash, crash, and decay. I also tried a Zildjian Timbale Cymbal (???). It was the size of a crash but played like a ride with an amazingly clear bell.
Also, check out Factory Metal Percussion. That looks like pretty interesting noise.

I honestly have to say the ZXT effects package(18"china & 10"splash) are quite impressive. Specially for the money. The china is durable and I've literally beat the hell outta that splash and it still sounds great and looks like new. They both have really surprised me.

The Zildjian oriental trash crash, Zil-bel and transformer crash are great effect cymbals. The transformer is actually a cheap cymbal but Carter Beauford uses one and it sounds great. There are also alot of chinas out there that sound great. Talk about cheap....check out the wuhans. They actually sound good for such a cheap cymbal. Ive had a 16" for 3 years and it has not a single flaw. Ohhh....make sure to use spring mounts. They will extend the life of the china. Later!

I also saw a Zildjian Earth Plate at the store the other day. Not a cymbal, but could be a fun add on. Also, crotales and Sabian Cymbal Discs.

Don't waste your money on the Zildjian Zil-bell orthe Sabian ones or any of that.
Go with LP.

Those things are killer.

some cooler effects ive played are, my sabian ice bells, ZXT transformer, and a real cool sound that i like but i fear i would probably break is like a 21" swish knocker.

I believe that unfortunately, Sabian stopped producing those AWESOME Alien Discs.... which sucks... *scurries off to ebay*

my local store has one that will probably be there until i eventually end up buying it. i have no idea if they produce them anymore but i wouldnt even know about it if i didnt see it there.

i got the 9" radia cup chime about a week ago. its a really fun cymbal.
