What's a good crash cymbal?
I need a new crash cymbal for my drums, but i really don't know where to start in finding one. I need it to be pretty cheap, but still have decent quality. So if any of you drummers have any suggestions, that'd be rad.

If you want a cheap, but still decent one, try Sabian B8 Pros or Zildjian ZXT/ZHTs. Try looking around on musiciansfriend.com. Search in your price range, and then listen to sound samples of what you find on zildjian.com or sabian.com. Hope this helps.

i think you should look at them in local music stores. Guitar center usually has a room full of cymbals where you can try them out. But you should try other stores too, my local guitar center never has anything so i end up going to a bunch of other places.
Zildijan, Sabian, and Paiste are good brands. Paiste are pricey though.
I personally like a large slow crash that has like a gong effect. I play Reggae, Folk, Indie rock. Stuff like jack johnson...that kind of sound so i don't want a really agressive crash that just blows up when i hit it
