Six holes isolate the bell for pure, clear bell tone, but also allow the cymbal to sound lighter than it is. So you get the sizzle of a thin crash, with the strength, volume and projection of a medium.
The 16" and 17" V-Crashes come to sparkling life with ease and could grace many settings where quick, bright punctuation is required. From the 18" model upwards things take a distinct turn for the louder, with each increase in diameter notching up the volume further. While the 18" model is pretty full-on, the 19" and 20" are staggeringly powerful crashes that beg for a big stage on which to be unleashed. Despite being capable of such huge volume, their sweetness makes them dangerously playable.SEE THE FULL REVIEW
