I use frequently a K-Con Zil set, 22" medium ride, 19" crash ride, 18" and 16" thin crashes.  The 19" developed a lathing crack between the bell bridge area, something I have read that is common, and the Zildjian rep would do nothing as it was out of warranty. 

 I replaced the 19" with a Istanbul Agop Traditional 19" thin crash that Shane @ DCP had on special a few years ago for less than a third of a K-Con replacement.  The pairing works very well.  I also sometimes mix Agop and Mehmet traditionals and they all seem sonically similar.  I will say my Agop Sig set {21", 18", 16", 14" hats} are tonally much darker and don't seem to pair well, like the traditional thins do.   IMHO
