This is Zildjians new answer to the paper thin cymbals that they once offered. It has a great high end pitch and quickly dissolves as it should. If you are looking for a cymbal with a fast decay, no matter what size, the A Zildjian fast crash will fit your needs perfectly.

Cymbals are nice

I've used less expensive Zildjian's for years. While they are good, my new Zildjian A series fast crash is exactly what I needed. It's a light crash that isn't harsh on my ears or those of my band. We play in smaller venues and having this lighter crash with a nice splashy sound is "music to our ears." Lovin' it. Upset that I didn't purchase it years ago.
