I recently bought a 16" Armand Medium Thin and a 20" Armand Ride as i love thier truly beautiful sound.. I am more than happy to use my 13" A Custom mastersound hats with the Amand's but the 18" A Custom fast Crash I initially paired with the 16" is not a complimentary sound.. The A custom is a great Crash but its too modern..
I tried a few K's I have and my other A custom/AAX's but nothing goes..
Am now thinking of perhaps buying another 17" A Fast Crash (stupidly sold last one) which i think might go well or an A thin.. I dont want an 18" as I much prefer quicker, faster Cymbals..
any other suggestions would be very helpful

gerry :)

Check out the 15" A Custom crash. It may still be too modern for you but a lot of us on here love that crash.

Those K 17 fast crashes are very compatible. Also as mentioned the 15 is a nice color. You can go a little heavier and still get the quickness.The K Custom dark 15 is sweet. BennyK

Ok for what I want its between a 15" A Thin and a 17" Fast, both sound very complimentary so i think i'll go with the 17" :)
