Zilj Custom A's for just about anything. I like the Fast version. For my place they rock (also good for rock). They decay quickly and don't wash too badly. Have not tried the ones you mentioned.

I'm a Zildjian A lover myself, however are you asking what a good cymbal might be for the big washed out constant crash Dave Grohl sort of sound? I have found the Sabian 20.5" Chad Smith crash to be superb for this and it blends well with my A series stuff.

That's what I don't like about Paiste. Different strokes...

I always record with the traditional series stuff from Istanbul. I always get compliments. Nice, quick crashes....the larger ones have just the right amount of wash. The thinner rides can be crash/ridden a la Grohl or countless others. I alsolutely love them.
I do still love my regular K hihats, but recently picked up a pair of the Istanbul Funky Rock hats. While it might be the stupidest named product ever, they do sound really nice.
later,

fwiw, you can never go wrong with zildjian new beat hats... thumbsup

istanbul rides/crashes are the bomb...

K Custom dark crashes are among my favorites. They are a very good all around crash. When I want something a little washier and agressive I go with A Custom either 19 or 20 inch projection crashes.
Never liked paiste for anything except R&B and Jazz.

Wouldn't that be a very very very good reason to NOT use them?

I don't have much experience with Paiste but I can't get the RUDE series out of my mind whenever the thought pops up!

I was assuming Ks's were on the dark edge of the spectrum
I know I need to go hit a few with my kit . to see how a cymbal declares itself in a mix of drums and guitars
Paistie seems to have a very different sound , very bright with a sheeny sustain
I love the dark sustain of the Ks maybe with just a bit more bite . Ill check int the custom A'
