Pretty close, yes. That one's a bit more china than crash to my ears, but definitely in the ballpark.Are you referring to a sound similar to the cymbal heard at about 0:03 and 3:05 in Night By Night (Steely Dan)?
Good call.I have a 21" Wuhan Med Thin Crash Ride that works like that.
When wash riding it, the sound is very pleasing, and actually somewhat "sweet" to my ears.
The 20" in that same model I have is a bit more trashy, and doing it again, I would have gone with the Thin instead.
The price is very good on these cymbals as well.
The Sound Control line sounded nothing like China cymbals nor were they designed to . They incorporated the flange to keep the overtones in check . They were pretty and articulate cymbals designed for low to mid volume use and studio use .Sabian sound control from the 1980's (?)(red ink labels) did a good job of that (flat edges). Zildjian used the term pang but even those are somewhat gongy, though nowhere near the gonginess of Swishes. I agree it's hard to find a perfect one.
Those are 2oo2 Big Beats. I also have a set of Masters Thins. The Masters Thins do exactly what I wanted the Trads to do and these Big Beats are great for outdoor gigs or venues where I need a little extra juice.Right on, Ry.
Are those Masters? I thought you were running Trads.
