Opens up without much effort.. Is musical in tonality with the rest of what's going on.. Get's out of the way...
Great 2 choices for your first cymbals. Best to get something that sonically matches and complements those 2, so something in the 'K tones'.... a K or K dark crash, then have many bases covered. Size depends on the sustain you want. Thinner rides can crash nicely too.Just bought my first acoustic kit and have already bought a k dark ride and k/dyno high hat pair. I...... What exactly should I be looking for in a crash? (I play a lot of fusion if that helps?)
Wow did I hit a nerve or what? But I mean come on here. When I was a kid a crash cymbal was made to hit at the end of a fill. Even in Fusion or in Jazz a crash cymbal is to hit to emphasize something. When Zildjian started putting "crash" on their cymbals it was when Rock was dominant. Let's get real here.Only if you're a jazzer?

Speaking of a horse for the course, here’s a Paiste 3000 series 24” reflector Crash. Now I would assume it would be used as Both a ride and a crash?If the question was 'what makes a splash sound good?' then ride cymbals would not have come into discussion would they? Horses for courses.
I like the sound of ZBT and HCS crash cymbals but then I play rock and country. They might be too harsh and bright sounding for jazz though.when listening to crashes I can hear that the timbre might be different with the more expensive ones, but I don't see why crashes like the zbt or hcs are worse.
