18"

Here's a sleeper cymbal...AND OF COURSE PAISTE NO LONGER MAKES THIS ONE AND HASN'T IN A DECADE!!!

 And it's DARKER than a 2002 with a more BROODING tone! 

 

IMAGINE A LATHED RUDE!! This particular 18" is drier than ALL others I've seen. 

The Dimensions series has the gone the way of the Pony Express. And that's a shame...the Pony Express was a great service. I don't think they ever lost a piece of mail in the 18 or so months that they operated. Maybe one piece. But they were remarkably efficient and operated on the edge of danger while crossing the Great Plains. You can still visit a Pony Express Station in Gothemberg, Nebraska.

Anyway, the good news is that I happen to have right here and offered up for your immense delight this No Longer Made Paiste Dimensions 18" POWER Crash that is in  Excellent Condition. Check out the pictures. There are

No

Nicks, cracks, dings or dents on this No Longer Made 18"!  The top side has a wonderful heavy patina that has graced it and DRIES this 18" out beautifully! 

 

Imagine a Paiste Giant Beat Projection Crash MIXED with a RUDE. That's THIS cymbal. FULL and with some darkness and complexity but a bit DRIER too!

With a healthy weight of 1633 grams this Power Crash plays like a Medium Heavy Crash. HOWEVER, and herein lies the beauty of this Paiste, it does NOT Clank its way through life like some heavier cymbals do. What's interesting is that this Paiste Power Crash is complex for a heavier cymbal, but the patina reins in a pinch of that yang. The tone is semi-dark, considerably darker and lower pitched than a 2002, and it has an INCREASED projection compliments of its heavier constitution. This really is a great projection crash. And it's a sleeper because Paiste didn't market the Dimensions Series well at all. 

And check out the handiwork. Superfine Lathing but with RUDE styled hammerings. 

Obviously this NO LONGER MADE Paiste is perfect for rock, pop, punk, classic rock, big blues, heavier styles, funk, fusion, country, R&B, session work, and definitely LIVE settings. Use it anytime you need a great semi-dark, beastly RUDE - like Paiste Crash that WILL PROJECT.

And you can't this DARK beauty anymore! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this NO LONGER MADE darker sounding 1633 gram Paiste Dimensions 18" Power Crash. And hang onto it.
