I own a SC 18” Short Crash.

It’s very … polite. Nice, quick, higher-pitched crash, and an almost flat ride-like ride tone. The bell, while it feels weird to hit due to the shape, sounds quite good.
I just acquired a Sound Creation Short Crash, and happily concur with this. The distinctive bell, which is quite shallow is designed to limit the ring according to Paiste. What TPC describes as a flat ride-like tone I would call more of a narrow frequency range. Doing an A-B against a 16“ Signature Fast Crash, the Sig is quicker, darker, more explosive, and not as long of a decay. Apples and oranges I know (the 16“ which IMHO is such a great dynamic crash, being the only one in the stable) yet still interesting to note.

Zildjian has used the design. For their (short lived) Oriental trash crashes, and their currently still available trash splashes.
