All our crash cymbals are accompanied by their own unique video. This means that you get excactly the cymbal, you watch in the video and not just a similar one from the stock.
At CymbalONE, we are selling crash cymbals made from B20 bronze, which secures you cymbals of the finest quality. (You can read more about the materials cymbals are made from here.)
Our crash cymbals come in the following scizes: 14", 15", 16", 17", 18", 19", and 20". If you want to search for a cymbal of a particular size, please visit the menu at the top of this page.
Here below are some tips if you are not sure sure what to look for in a new crash cymbal.
Begin with a primary sorting: What are your needs considering the type of music, you are playing? Are you beating the drum hard, or are you maybe playing more dynamically and varied? Do you like cymbals with dark and dusty tones, or do you prefer cymbals with light and clear tones?
Are you playing rock of the heavy kind, we would recommend something brilliant and not too thin.
Thickness is primarily a question of volume because in fact it is the thin cymbals that last the longest, as they can easier "get away from your sticks" when you beat them. On the other hand, there is less of a body put in motion with the thin crash cymbals, which again means less volume. Our best tip would be that you just listen to a lot of cymbals to get an idea about what you like the best.
Considering size is important. Maybe you have already got a cymbal that you would like to supplement with another one, and then it might be easy to choose the size. But are only interested in having one crash cymbal on your drum set, then I would recommend either a 17" or a 18" cymbal. With this size, you get more fullness in the tones and bigger versatility. 19" might be a little too big for some drummers, while 15" and 16" oftentimes produce "thinner" tones.
Remember that you have the right to return a purchased item to CymbalONE within 14 days. Does a particular cymbal not match your taste after all, you can just return it to us, cf. our guidelines, which you can find here.
