    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.

    If you have a crash ride and like to get a crash cymbal, this will be most likely a much smaller size than your existing crash ride to have a difference in crash sound as 15" to 19" range.

    We hope this helps.
