Meinl Cymbals MB20-20HC-B 20" Heavy Crash Cymbal
I normally don't prefer 20" crash cymbals, but this Meinl's MB20 Heavy Crash cymbal sounds amazing and plays superior to the other available sizes in this model series. This heavyweight cymbal has an enormous sound and while the 20 inch model is huge for a crash cymbal, it actually doesn't have an obnoxiously long sustain. Rather, it has a bright attack with a deep sustain. The 20 inch model has a medium-high pitch and these smaller sizes get gradually higher in pitch making them sound very different from each other. This is the most aggressive cymbal I recommend because it cuts while maintaining a rounded sound and sounds especially great in the metal genre. It’s very thick, making this pick extremely durable along with a beautiful, brilliant finish.
