    While crash cymbals are usually in 15" to 19" sizes and crash rides are 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.

    We hope this helps.

    a splash cymbal is a small cymbal between 5 and 13 inches that you hit like a crash cymbal and it sounds like a splash in water a ride cymbal is a cymbal between 18 and 30 inches that you hit on top and on the bell to get a ping sound you should get a 20 inch ride to put on the right side of your kit behind the floor tom if you want to get a splash thats fine but if you want to go big thats cool also ive only been playing for a few months but i already have a splash hi-hats 3 crash cymbals a china and a ride and im planning on getting more
