I need to replace a 20" Paiste RUDE Thin Crash. This "thin" crash is around medium heavy in normal cymbal weighting. Very similar to the 2002 Medium.
I am a heavy enough hitter, but nothing silly and I do not crack cymbals from playing.
I really love the RUDE but I feel that something different could be nice now, while I have the chance.
The RUDE is essentially a more raw sounding 2002 Medium, so the 20" Medium is a natural alternative.
I do quite like the sound of the 20" Giant Beat, more so than the 20" 2002 Crash.
How do medium thin cymbals hold up to heavier playing in terms of cracking?
I don't crack cymbals, though this RUDE replacement is down to a crack forming from an edge dent made after a heavy fall =( .
In what way would a 20" medium thin feel different to a medium heavy when crash riding?
Many thanks all!
