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.

Despite being capable of such huge volume, their sweetness makes them dangerously playable.SEE THE FULL REVIEW
