Sizes: 16", 17", 18", 19", 20"
Sound character: Dark, warm, smoky. Medium wide range, complex mix. Buttery, soft feel with quick response. Rich, dark, mystical crash sound with tender clarity. Extremely lively cymbal for broad accents and crashes in intimate to semi-loud settings. Well suited for delicate ride patterns or mallet swells. «For those guys who really appreciate just having a cymbal that can do everything, the larger Dark Crashes can do anything. Very crash-able, and if you want to ride on them, they will give you all the ride patterns in the world.» - Gregory Hutchinson
Sizes: 18", 20"
Sound character: Hissing, roaring, metallic, shimmering. Narrow range, fairly complex mix. Very responsive, balanced feel, especially controllable while crash/riding. A strong, piercing, crash paired with a growling decay. Very sturdy crash cymbal for louder musical applications in aggressive drumming styles.
