Dry and unrefined, the Raw Crash is explosive but shuts down quickly, and also works as an alternate ride that is dry and cutting.

Raw Crashes are some of the most unrefined and funky cymbals we've ever produced! Each Raw Crash starts from Zildjian's secret alloy and is rolled, tempered, cupped and sandblasted for a sound and look that's unlike any other cymbal. Raw crashes are untrimmed – roughly 20” - 23” in diameter, and irregular in shape – making each Raw Crash a truly unique instrument.
The large bell Raw Crash opens up very quickly with an explosive crash, but is dry enough that it shuts down and gets out of the way very quickly. The Raw Crash is also a great choice for an alternate ride cymbal. Its dry qualities produce good stick definition that cuts nicely over an underlying, funky growl. The large bell version delivers great stick definition while having a depth of wash to the sound, compared to its sister, the small bell Raw Crash. The larger bell offers more depth to the sound and offers cutting projection. Its explosive attack and fast decay make it perfect for both loud and delicate musical situations.
