Yeah, when you have two cymbals in the same finish, same size, near-same weight, and same creation techniques, they'll sound pretty similar. Really, OP, you'd likely be good with most medium-thin to medium 14" cymbals in a traditional finish. I'm sure there are plenty of 14" crash lovers peddling some on eBay right now.
