Default Well, there goes my crash! :)

Yup, there you have it folks, my ZBT crash has finally met its maker. Eh, whatever, it was crappy anyway. Now it's REALLY time for an upgrade! So anyway, while we're on the subject, what would be an ideal pair of crashes for a metal/hard rock drummer? What brand? What size? What series?

Thanks!

Take a gander at this beauty! (the crack that is) Sorry about how crappy the picture is, the damn file attachment window was being all whatever about how it needs to be 800 x 1000. Keep in mind that this is a 16 in.

Ouch... hopefully the crack was not your fault. Personally I like Paiste RUDEs and 2oo2s for metal/rock.

P.S. Is that an arrow that you drew with marker on your cymbal, right around the area of the crack? Please elaborate.

Ouch... I've never cracked a cymbal and tend to keep it that way.
As for the replacement: for metal Rude's are great, but the heavier Paiste signatures are also superb cymbals. If you're not into paiste have a look at sabian. Their AAX and HHX lines have some good cymbals, and their APX line is specifically designed for heavy music (personally I don;t like the sound files I heard so far).

Ahh...the same thing happened with my ZBT crash back in 6th grade. Those things are garbage. You're exactly right in saying "Now it's REALLY time for an upgrade! ".

I've cracked many a cymbal. Last one to go was my Sabian 17" AAXtreme China.....126 quid for a new one!

:-(

Was a few years old though. Biggest regret the time before when i cracked my 15" AAX Crash was replacing it with a 14" AAX Crash....The thing's got no balls. I'm trying to crack it again so i can go back to a 15" (Already have a 16" that i love)

Meinl Mb20 and byzanance, Sabian AAX, HHX, and APX, Zildjian Z Custom, this one Istabuu agop cymbals that I seen From Steamer, and Paiste Rudes and 2oo2s are all good for metal.

I've cracked a few Paiste 2002s back in the day (hi-hats & crashes -- maybe those Billy Cobham 808 sticks didn't help matters). Never cracked a Sabian though. Their new APX line is perfect for hard hitters. I doubt you'd crack those...

Re: heavier cymbals for heavy music?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd add the Alchemy Pro line made by Istanbul Agop into the mix. Designed for the music you have in mind and deadly LOUD based on the samples i've tested at the local Agop distributors location.

I actually gave those a try. Quite hard to find but impressive. Loud, very loud. I liked them alot. Where exactly can these be baught at? I found them in a drum shop that's pretty much in the middle of nowhere and they said they had to special order them. Are they pretty much expclusive to Canada and special shops?

I seem to remember Noel at Heartbeat Percussion saying a few months back that he had available the whole Alchemy Pro line from Istanbul Agop factory in regards to North America.This means the States might only have a few {?} but the entire Alchemy line is available in Canada at present They certainly were in abundant supply last time I visited his Agop distribution location.

Here's the Heartbeat Percussion website just drop Noel an email message under "contact us" if you wish to know more info metal overlord:

That's not a crack, that's a rip!!!
I think the best cymbals for you are Zildjian Z Customs...they are best suited for heavier music, and are not meant to be hit lightly. They are unlathed and have different styles of hammering and they weigh a ton. Should be damn near bulletproof, I would imagine.
