Default jazz combo gig + 20" zildjian crash of doom

I bought a 20" zildjian crash of doom today, just because I had been staring at it on the rack at my local music store for 5 years.

Took it to my space and put it on a stand and FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Soooo I had a jazz combo gig tonight and brought it along as a 3rd ride. Filled the gap between my 22" paiste 505 and my 18" zildjian breakbeat perfectly, and really complimented my vintage 20" zildjian swish with 6 rivets. (sadly, this meant my 20" zildjian K pre-aged dry light ride had to spend the night in the case...) It's a trashy crash, or a complex dry ride or a china depending on how hard and where you hit it... and the bell is rediculous.

Everyone needs to get one of these. It's the ultimate go-to cymbal to have. I can't wait to play another jazz gig and get to know it better.

{edit} I feel like i should add that i also played a 20" sabian groove ride and a 21" sabian raw bell dry ride today... both amazing cymbals, but I felt like they were too specific with their sound, like if i had them both I would have to switch between them at gigs... great studio instruments, i'm sure, but probably nothing i'd own for live use.

The crash of doom is ultimate for stripped down bluesy rock. I dont own one but i've played one before at a gig and ever since ive been regretting the fact i dont have one.

I like the crash of doom better than the sabian legacys because wierd things happen when you try to ride a cymbal with holes in it

I have been interested in this cymbal. Do you think it would fit in some blues/rock music? BTW, I also own a 22" 505 ride.

using it as a ride in anything louder than an unamplified jazz combo would make it sound like you were just riding on a thin crash cymbal, in which case there are probably better candidates for cymbals. I got it to use in jazz situations because I like my kit to sound unique.

But what about using it as a crash? I'm looking for a 19" or 20" crash.

it would be perfect then!

it's really dry as a crash and it has a pretty quick decay since it's so thin (mine was never used, and it's pretty warped.)

I would definitely recommend messing around with one in a store before you buy it. This the definition of a cymbal you should not buy online.
