I am looking for some new cymbals. I'd like two crashes that have a dark and warm sound, more warm than dark though. I'd like semi pro - pro grade suggestions please. I'm open to Meinl, Stagg, Zildjian, Sabian or Paiste. I'd also like to be able to get them used from Guitar Center. Thanks for your time.

I must have ESP?
Actually I also like odd sized cymbals.
I have an 11" K Cust Hy splash along with the 13" hats.

A customs or Meinl Byzance, although the Byzance are a little expensive. If you want a great crash for small money try the Istanbul Alchemys.

I was thinking the following, just wanted to see if any came up

Meinl: MB10
Zildjian: A and K Customs
Sabian: AAX, HH, HHX
Stagg: DH

Anyone use these?

The A customs are my favorite. But they are fairly bright, not too dark. Plenty of warmth tho. I've never played any K customs, but every time someone puts a post on looking for a "dark crash", people seem to recommend them. The AAX dark crash is prob the best suggestion tho. Very warm, and know body ever seems to complain about them. Personally, I wouldn't like the small bell they have, but that's just me. Good luck.

I always here good things about K's but an AAX dark is actually too dark for me. And I don't like the bell either haha

Yeah, I have a 19" AAXplosion crash and I friggin' luv it. It's a great crash/ride and the bell is sweet. Goes nicely with my Dark 16" Sabian.

Yes, I basically have fairly full sets of the Zildjian As, K Customs, Sabian Hand Hammered and HHX Evolution cymbals.
