        Good man! I was thinking of getting both 18" & 19", but maybe one at a time. Does your 18" pair up with a 16" or 17" cymbal you have?

          I have both an 18" and 17" AXXplosion. They sound a bit too close for me, but I make it work.


          So a shop 'round here is going out of business and has two 19" Holy China's. This is one of the very, very few china cymbals I like. They are also easily the nicest cymbals they have left. They are being pretty stingy on the price drops though (in my opinion) and I am broke, unfortunately. That being said, I do have a threshold price in mind and if they eventually drop one below that price, you best believe I'm buying it.

            Try the AAX Dark crashes paired with the Explosion and/or Fast crashes. Heaven.

              My most recent purchase is a 17" Sabian HHX Evolution Effeks Crash. I own it for about 12 hours now and already love it

                funny, I happen to have kind of the same problem with my zildjian k thin crashes (17" and 18"). interestingly, my 17" and 18" Sabian Legacy crashes compliment each other really well. I think that this is simply part of natural sound variance every cymbal maker has...

                  Hope you can land one, too loud for me!

                  I thought if I got the 18" XP Fast I'd be pairing it with my 16" Studio, or if I got the 19" XP Fast I'd pair it with the 17" Studio. Depends on what sizes I want for main crashes...

                    I'm looking for an effects type cymbal but not too loud and not a china. Some sort of trashy crash I'm thinking. I'm assuming ozone is the obvious choice but I'd like to look at a variety. Any ideas?

                      Ozone cymbals are great. I have two 18" ozones... An HHX and an AAX, and I love them both.

                        There's the HHXtreme, HHX/Vault/Signature Fierce, and Evolution Effeks crashes too.

                          Quieter trashy crashes... Just about any overly thin, overly hammered cymbal will be close to that.

                              Could always look into a stack, perhaps.
                              Less, by simple definition, cannot be more. Seriously. Check the ****ing dictionary.
