    Oh that's easy - it's because there's no rule that sizes have to go left to right as they get bigger

    Lol, I know that friend. I was just trying to imagine his set up and I'm picturing two 18" crashes on the left (over the hats) and a 16" crash over a 20" crash used as a ride? I'd love to see a pic of the op's current rig.

    I personally would prefer a 17" to 20" Zildjian K Sweet Crash or a Zildjian K Custom Hybrid to use as a Crash/Ride on that side.

    I tend to go with them cause they come through the mix well and blend nicely but they aren't as bright/cutting to me as some of the A Customs can be.

    If the crash sound is too "gongy," you probably want a thinner cymbal. Peace and goodwill.

    It fits very well. In fact I like it better than my former Sig 20" Full Crash Reflector. The GB opens up faster, has an incredibly beautiful shimmer up top (like a distant vintage phone ring) and also offers a somewhat low pitched "bed" of sound when played lightly. It doesn't have high volume as the Sig Full of same size, but it just sounds so beautiful, I'm keeping it. Through the microphones it sounds even better, and that GB is at its best when I don't use any EQ whatsoever. I'm very happy with this cymbal.
