Def let us know maybe put up a video.Thanks for this thread! I just picked up the latest 22" Masterworks Blank Hazelshould had up. It seems like everything I want in one of these kind of cymbals.
The Zildjian dooms are still a little heavy, even though I LOVE my 20" COD. Can't wait to try this Masterworks out!
Some other alternatives to a Crash of Doom are a thin-to-medium thin Dream Bliss or an Agop Xist Dry Dark crash. I've had both. Both were trashier than the CoD I once had, but none were as trashy as my 20.5" Wuhan Spizz. Most Wuhan Spizzes are heavy manhole covers, but I was lucky enough to get one that's washy and crashable.
did Charlie Watts have one in latter years to his left ? he always seemed to prefer trashier type cymbals.Has anyone seen or owned one of these? Very cool cymbal a lot is crash of doom looks to it and has that kinda sound.

I found the same thing with the volume on my 20" COD. Love the sound but to use it live I would have to dedicate another mic. It doesn't cut through enough to match the rest of my cymbals through the overheads.I had an 18” and really loved it until I used it live. It was VERY low volume and kinda unusable except for low volume jazz gigs, which I hardly ever do. But as I said, playing around the kit on my own it was really nice.
I have a 20" COD as well as Dream Bliss and Agop Dry Darks. I think its a fair comparison at least as cousins. I find the COD is more mellow than the Agop Dry Dark...the COD swells where the Agop DD shatters and is more trashy. The other reason I appreciate your comparison is that I have found the COD to pair magically with my Vintage Bliss cymbals.Some other alternatives to a Crash of Doom are a thin-to-medium thin Dream Bliss or an Agop Xist Dry Dark crash.

I was wondering how loud they really are. I got rid of my cods because I didn’t think they were loud at all.Got to use my 22" Masterworks Blank this weekend at a gig. Absolutely incredible cymbal, but pretty shocked at how low volume and instant it was. It could have just been because I had in ears in with no drums running through, only our keys player and vocals, but I still really like this thing.
Extremely, extremely thin. I've been going through a lot of cymbals in this spot of really trashy crash.
So far, this Masterworks blank, 20" Zildjian efx crash, and 22" K custom special dry fits the best so far.

Ya Ive noticed a trend with them being a lot quieter then most.I think as far as cut, these Masterworks definitely do better. They just don't have any sustain in a band setting. Almost immediate decay.
My COD is very low volume and blends more than anything. I wish Zildjian would make them just a little bit lighter, especially the 22s. It seems Zildjian doesn't really have any really big, thin crashes. They discontinued the 22" special dry almost immediately and it, to me, is the best of the bunch.
I think in this spot, this Masterworks, or my 22" Dream Bliss Crash/Ride are my 3 favorite currently.
I always forget about my 22" Dream, but it's honestly one of the best, even trashy, cymbals I own!
