Could this crash cymbal get any more perfect? It has more than enough volume to cut through heavy metal music, but it "opens up" exceptionally well, and this characteristic plus its warm, full tone make it just as suitable for combo jazz and big band. Its versatility also enables it to blend perfectly with any setup, even a mixture of A's, K's and A Custom's like mine. If you are searching for an epic 16" crash, this is the one to get!
An amazing cymbal! Very good for studio and for live. One of the most multipurpose cymbals. It was my first from A seria. God bless Zildjian for this sound!
I've had this cymbal for almost 30 years. It's still my go-to crash for almost any situation. Great projection and tone.
