I have a 17" Signature precision that I LOVE and an 18 Precision thin that I like a lot. I'd like to find something bigger to match with these ideally a 19". Playing loud rock/metal.

Why not try a 19" Rude Crash Ride?

Seems like I've read where folks get by with a 19" Rude as their only cymbal - so I'm pretty sure it's "multipurpose" in the louder Rock / Punk / Metal genres

I often use a 19" Rude Thin Crash with my Sigs for louder settings. The Rude thin is a nice compliment to the Sigs. Somewhat dark and shimmering, but with plenty of power. I use it as a right side crash normally.

Cool. I went to Dale's in Pennsylvania. AWESOME shop, but only had 2002s and Rudes. They didn't do that much for me but may give it a shot. I've only recently become a Paiste convert. Something about those Signatures!

My favorite 19" Paiste crash is the 2002 19". In my opinion the 19" 2002 is very close to the perfect all round crash. Its
the crash sound you hear when you close your eyes if you grew up in the 70's / 80's.

Appreciate the responses. I really should've taken my Sigs up there to pair. The more I listen the I'm leaning toward a Sig full crash.

I'm with Black Label on the 19" 2002, but the 19" Sig Full Crash is an amazing cymbal as well.
