Crash cymbals are usually in 15" to 19" sizes and crash rides larger cymbals as ride cymbals.
Crash rides are heavier than ride cymbals due to their profiles. Ride cymbals are thinner at their edges, crash rides have thicker edge profiles that makes them heavier.
Crash rides are hybrid cymbals that are can be used both as crash and ride. They are louder than ride cymbals with a lot of sustain.

The call is commonly on the cymbal. The experience cymbal has a softer sound. you are able to play on it however the sound is uniform. The CRASH cymbal is louder and has a tendency to have a spontaneous sound while hit. right now's cymbal incorborate the two features. you ought to use it to experience and hit it to supply the comparable sound as a crash even though it dies down swifter so which you will proceed to experience on it.

crash/rides double as a crash and a ride where if you get a crash or ride its that. getting them as crash or ride usually sound better
