Here's a little factoid...

In WWI a pilot had to shoot down 5 planes to become an "Ace." The Red Baron disposed of 80 planes before he fell victim to British guns. He was just shy of his 26th birthday.

And that has absolutely nothing to do with this crash!!!

Paiste ingloriously discontinued the Signature Mellow Crash a few years ago, but they've brought it back!!  As you would expect from a Swiss company, Paiste can't commit to anything.

AND FOR THAT NON-COMMITAL CRASH, YOU'LL HAVE TO PAY $385!!

UNLESS..........

Posted for your immense pleasure is this fantastic sounding AMAZINGLY CLEAN PAISTE Signature 18" MELLOW CRASH that is in TERRIFIC Condition.  Check out the pictures! There is

NO

cracks or keyholing on this glorious 18"! It's in GREAT SHAPE with only the lightest wear/a few tiny waves on the edge - so typical of these thinner Paste Signatures. It has zero effect on the cymbal. This beauty has been played a total of six minutes! 

As you can see, this Signature is REALLY CLEAN! 

The Mellow Crash is tonally right in between the Fast Crash and the Full Crash.

Paiste described this Mellow Crash as:

"Warm, mellow, low, full."

What's great about this specific Mellow Crash is that it has a fairly dark tone considering it's a Signature Series. It has all the body of a Paiste Full Crash but the tone is closer to a Paiste Fast Crash-  however the sustain lasts longer than the Fast Crash.

And that's what I dig about the Mellow Crash. The weight falls right between the Fast and the Full Crash making it a great, well balanced semi-dark Signature Crash. Darker than the Full and fuller than the Fast. And of course it has all the CLEAN, CRISP Paiste tone that catapulted the Signature Series to stardom 30 years ago. and it's responsive---even at lower volumes.

The weight is 1288 grams. A perfect blend of Fast and Full! Dark and lower pitched for a Signature! And...melllloooow! 

You can use this Paiste Signature 18" Mellow Crash for absolutely anything. Its clean, well balanced tone is perfect for rock, pop, funk, fusion, world music, country, R&B and gospel, and its darker leanings, thinner weight and great responsiveness make it a welcomed addition in jazz, blues, ballads, and soul. And of course it's a joy to record. The Signatures have that clean, focused tone that is oh so mic friendly.

$385?????

THERE'S NO NEED! This MELLOW is in TERRIFIC SHAPE! VERY CLEAN! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this exceptionally well BALANCED, 1288 gram Paiste Signature Series 18" Mellow Crash.
