Review: NOTE: Review is for 19" and 20" Thin Crashes The 20" is darker than I imagined, probably b/c it is a Thin. These crashes are much more glassy and shimmery than the Bosphorus/Turkish cymbals I'm used to. These tones seemed more abrasive to me at first. I think that's why a lot of folks shy away from the Paistes. In the store, if you hit an 18" Zildjian A. crash and then an 18" Paiste 2002 w/ a similar weight, the Zildjian will probably be more pleasing to the ear. The trick w/ the Paistes is playing them in the live setting. The last two nights, I had the benefit of standing in various spots of the venue while the guy in the opening band played my kit and cymbals. I was afraid that the 2002s would be too loud or abrasive (especially since I have larger sizes), but I was surprised at how great they sounded. The Shimmery glassiness that can seem abrasive in a music store is what makes the 2002s sing so well in the context of the live setting. They cut through well, and the SANG. Very full, very present, and sonically very pleasing, believe it or not. And they sounded different than everybody else's Turkish-style cymbals.
