"Groove crashes are warm-voiced with an assertive edge that helps them cut through well." - Adam Jones
"Both 16" and 18" crashes had a definite volume threshold. Once you reach that peak, they aren't going to get any louder no matter how hard you smack them. ( later found out from Bosphorus
that this effect was intentional, with the wide underside lathing being the main reason for the shorter decay and controlled resonance.) The 16" crash had a more traditional voice, with a quick attack and full, sparkling resonance. But the decay time was short. The 18" also had a fast attack and a short decay time, but the resonance was noticeably more contained. You wouldn't want to use this cymbal if you play a lot of crash/ride grooves. But if you play in smaller rooms, or if you need to be careful not to overpower your band when you start smashing
accents during louder sections, these crashes would be a great choice." - Michael Dawson
"The Groove crashes have a fast attack and decay while being a touch on the warm side. They prove great for ensemble work where I want to play a strong accent, then get out of the way. " - Shopper
