Paiste cymbals is happy to feature their new 2002 Wild Crashes. These crashes are built to scream wildly and moreover: to last. Past experiences have shown that many drummers do not realize how frequencies lay in the music or how the attack of the cymbal can get lost in the complex layers of the unconditional, raw energy of rock music.

As the company says: Cymbal sound should always blend well with the music, no matter what volume. If your cymbals are on the verge of drowning in the overall sound, this is where trouble starts and not just the audible problem. Because the drummer will tend to overplay their cymbals in this situation, they will most likely end up cracking. Constantly vibrating in its \"red zone\", if you will!
This is where the Wild Crashes comes in. A rather aggressive mid-range type of attack with an icy-blue wash supporting it. Numerous tests with some of the Paiste artists have proven the cymbal manufacturer is on the right path. The smaller sizes (17\" & 18\") function perfectly as main accent crashes and the larger sizes (19\" & 20\") will serve perfectly as \"crash/ride\" cymbals. As we are all familiar with the 8th note-pattern on the crash in the chorus, the cutting, sharp attack and the short decay of these new cymbals are according to Paiste crucial for this type of musical application.
Artists that already play the Wild Crashes are: John \'JR\' Robinson, Gas Lipstick, Joey Castillo and Paul Bostaph.
