Strong initial attack and smooth, fast decay!
True to their name, Fast Crashes have a smooth, fast decay. Following a strong initial attack, these cymbals are bright, full-bodied, and musical. The paper-thin weight provides for a soft, buttery feel, and plenty of playability. Very responsive, these cymbals excel in moderate acoustic settings and in recording environments. Beginning with the 14" size, going up to the 18", these cymbals increase in volume and sustain while maintaining their unique, quick voices.
After playing the new A Zildjian Fast Crashes, Matt Sorum of Velvet Revolver commented, "These cymbals have a nice brilliant sound and really jump out at you. They also have a nice attack and decay. They are in the tradition with the As, but a newer, hipper, and more modern version. Zildjian is always trying new ideas and that's a good thing!"
