I actually really like the Paiste PST5 line, if you stick to the "thin" crash cymbals. The medium and rock weights sound a lot more clangy to my ears.

I got a few used ones to have a "go bag" of cymbals I don't need to worry about for quick gigs and now I use they all the time. They aren't as nuanced and they don't open up as easily as a professional-level cymbal, but they are (IMO) the best budget/student cymbal on the market and for what they are they still have a good amount of that "famous Paiste shimmer."
