Default Good (reasonably priced) cymbal for crashing/riding on?

Hey guys.

I was wondering if anybody could recommend to me a cymbal which is good for crashing/riding on, preferably Zildjian or Sabian branded but I'm open to others. I currently have a rather small drum set up. I have two crash cymbals, a 18" Zildjian ZXT Crash, 16" Sabian B8 Thin Crash and a ride cymbal; 20" Sabian B8 Ride.

I know they're not really top of the range but I think they have a good sound and I got them new at a great price. Regardless, I'm looking to add a crash/ride to my set but I'm unsure what to go for. I've had a look about but still, I find myself coming here. Any suggestions, guys?

Well, nah, I'm not too bothered if it's second hand or not, as long as it's not cracked or damaged I'm happy. :)

And my price range is anything up to about 120-30. I'm currently at Uni so I'm rather skint, hah.

Sabian 20 hhx evolution ride, it's very thin and some, if not many use it for crashing.

The 3 point crash in the sabian cymbal voting should be an iteresting ride as well.

If you're looking for personal opinions, here's mine:

I could get by with just my old pair of 14" New Beat hi-hats, and my new 21" Zildjian Sweet Ride, very easily.

Only had the sweet ride a couple weeks, and I don't play gigs anymore. But I doubt it's the 'honeymoon' phase with this cymbal. I like what I hear every time I play it.
It rides well and crashes well, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. People seem to have strong feelings about it one way or the other.

New prices on these are over your budget, but you could probably find one used. You could also sell or trade one or two of what you have now to put towards something.
Best to get your hands on some you're thinking of and try them out.

Cheers for the responses guys!

I've had a look at each of the cymbals which you've suggested on YouTube and other sites to try and get a comparison on them. I'm going to try and go for something in the Sabian AAX/HHX range as I'm comfortable with Sabian and I really like the diversity they have to offer. Still, I'll continue to welcome other suggestions!

For that kind of money, it's very possible to get a good Dream Bliss 20" ride on eBay. I bought one recently for 75. An excellent ride (very thin mind) and a superb crash.

Might be best just to use what you've got now, until you're finished with that.

Hmm, I've never heard on them! I'll have a look at them and see because around 75 would be fantastic! Thanks for the tip!

And you're probably right, Bill! I'm working two part time jobs at the moment (McDonalds and a Chinese takeaway) to earn some cash but still, it's a lot of money for a teenage student.

I was very lucky to get it for 75 but it is possible if you spend a few days looking.
