I have not but now I will. Thank you. I've been trying to learn drums for a couple of years and there is so much you dont know that you dont know. It has dawned on me recently I've done only a minimal amount about learning cymbals. My gear mostly belonged to my late brother so I didnt really do research on it before buying. Its nice Zildjians A's and K's and Yamaha drums and I'm just playing at home but I want to know more about the stuff. People like you who share their thoughts have been very helpful in this process.Have you checked out mycymbal.com? If not, please do.
Agree with this! So a 16” crash should be higher in pitch than an 18”. If the 18” is considerably thicker and the 16” very thin it is possible that the 18” could be higher in pitch. Either way the 18” will be louder and sustain/ring longer.Pitch of anything generally correlates with size.
Bigger = lower pitch
Bigger = more sustain
In cymbals, weight is a factor too. For the same cymbal diameter, thicker = higher pitch.
