Where does a splash cymbal go?

How good are Stagg cymbals?
I was very impressed with all of the Stagg cymbals. A few didn’t appeal to my taste, but all of these cymbals were high-quality and offer a very solid value when considering their price.

The bigger the splash, the longer the sustain of the cymbal. The smaller the splash, the shorter the sustain. So, a 12” splash cymbal is going to ring for a lot longer than an 8” splash cymbal. Decide if you want more or less sustain, then get a splash that’s size caters to that.

What cymbals should a drummer have?
Sizes typically range from 14” to 18”, and a nice 16” is a good size for starters. A general rule is the thicker the cymbal, the higher the pitch.

Can you use a crash cymbal as a ride?
Crash/ride and ride/crash cymbals have several uses: In a very small kit, one may be the only suspended cymbal, used as both crash and ride. Some beginners’ cymbal packs have only three cymbals: A pair of hi-hats, and a crash/ride.
