Too bad they started making them thicker , the first couple of years they were fantastic. Really warm and shimmery like butter. Now they are different.

I have A Custom crashes in 16, 18, and 20" sizes and I love them for everything I play. However, I don't care as much for the hats and rides so I use regular As for those.

I remember when they 1st came out......man, I am old!  I had the entire set when they came out - 14 hats, 14, 16, 17, 18 crashes, 20 ride......they were great....I got over the bright sound though and sold all except the 14 crash.  It actually was lower pitched than a 17 K thin dark crash I had!  I let it get nice and tarnished and it was pretty sweet, but that had to go, too.

Yes, they were nice and then back then.  I have come across a few in the last 10 yrs that were so-so........

I still use the 18" crash but I sold off the 15 and 17 and put the 16 in storage.  However, I'm contemplating replacing it with one of the new design big 'A' 18" medium thins.

I think the fast crashes are what the original crashes were.. I only own fast models.. I love them. The sizzle Ride I bought from new when it was first introduced.. maybe a couple of years after the release of the 1992 originals!!

Anyone notice an echo in here?
