Good budget crash for different genres

Bought this crash to use it together with its 16" brother, and they pair perfectly, but from both of them I prefer the 16" one.

I needed a crash that would be on a budget and would be suitable for different genres of music. However, I don't feel that this would be the best choice for metal, which would demand bit thicker tone. One thing that it lacks a little bit is punch. It feels that the crash spreads sound over the room, it has a wide quality to it. Just missing the attack or blast at the moment when I hit it.

Have been using this cymbal for nearly a year in rehearsals and live shows without any issues. I am happy what I got for the money and I recommend this to others, who need a good crash on a budget for playing different styles of music. Can not go wrong with Meinl.

Just enough cut

Hi,
As I recently got into playing heavier music, I found myself lacking volume when playing with my band. I tend to have a softer touch so I decided to buy larger size cymbals to compensate :P This 18" Classics is perfect for metal drummers as it has enough cut, great tone, and the durability / price is not to be underestimated when we all know crashes tend to break often.

The sound is great, compared to my 16" Byzance medium, it doesn't have the harshness and body, but more of the explosive high pitch and shorter sustain you would look for in a metalcore / extreme metal context.

I am already planing on buying a 17" inch medium, so I can move the 16" Byzance on the far right.

Great value for money, Nice and loud!!

I bought this along with the smaller 17" Extreme metal crash to replace some old cracked crashes and record some music with my band. I was very pleased with both the sound, and the look of the cymbals.
There is a loud, dark wash from this 18" cymbal which is great for filling chorus' in heavy distorted music (I think some people call it Crash/Riding??!!), while crashing the accents on the smaller 17" gives a nice bright contrast to this.
The bells on both cymbals have a nice interesting sound, at times I thought they might be little dull, flat, or cheap sounding, but there are paper barcode labels attached underneath so I should really remove those before I comment further!
The 17 and 18 are very well matched tonally so I'd imagine other cymbals in the range might compliment these quite well.
Absolutely no signs of ever developing cracks, and I have these nearly a year already!

Overall, a huge, ear splittingly loud cymbal with a pretty full wash and nice dark tones!

Great Looking and Sounding Cymbal

First of all it's an amazing looking cymbal, the holes in it give my whole kit a unique look. This cymbal gives an amazing sound I've never heard from any other cymbals. It sounds brilliant and fits in with most styles of music and genres, I do find that it fits the best with heavier music than lighter. It has the kind of sound that fills up a room. I don't think the holes sacrifice any of it's durabillity, I've had mine for quite some time now and I havn't noticed a single crack. If you play metal, this is definately a must have cymbal for your kit!
