Paiste PST5's look pretty nice, but im wondering how they sound, i want the 18" medium crash for kind of a a deeperish crash. I have a low budget because i cant work as much with my school schedule. Please help me out!

in my opinion, the pst 5s are the best entry-level cymbal model. but they're still not as good as any intermediate and pro level. if you can spare the cash, go for an intermediate level of a different brand (because i know full well the price of high-end paistes)

If you have the extra money, I think a Paiste Alpha would be a better choice for you. You can still get a crash for under $200, and the quality is higher than the PST 5s.

Isn't Alpha the series below PST5?

Anywho, I have the PST5 Rock hats, nice and crisp when closed, loud and pronounced when opened.

If you want a nice crash for under 200 go the Sabian AAX Metal Crash, professional drummers use it even though its from the middle line and it was my favorite cymbal before I got my 2002 18" Crash.

If not, you could save up a little longer and purchase the 2002 18" Crash, it sounds just like the Signature 16" Crash, but it costs less.

alphas were introduced in '92, but then re-issued with new technology as a step above pst5

they also offer a wider selection of cymbals.

i know you're all going to say " save and get a better crash," but i need this new crash like right now and i dont have a lot of cash, so if it was your choice what would choose? PST 5, ZXT, Wuhan, or Tosco 18" crash?

i have a pst 5 thin crash i bought at guitar center during a sale and before i bought it they let me put it on a kit and i compared it to a sabian they had on the kit (i dont remember which model) and i thought the pst5 sounded better...i like the crash it has a nice sound to it

well i got mine on sale and the salesperson usually gives me the hookup so i got the 16" thin crash for $40 but you can get it on like musiciansfriend.com for i think $70, it has a crisp sound to it not too high not too low its bright and melodious i use it most out of all of my cymbals and its taken a pounding and still going strong and sounding great i would recommend it from personal use

they're not entry levels, it u actually u actually take the time 2 read the description of the cymbal(which obviously given, didn't) u'd know tht they r intermediate level cymbals and r good 4 any1 on a budget
