Byzance 18 inch china

By Zach

from Pittsburgh, PA

i just got this cymbal, and this thing is great. it is the perfect china cymbal for metal, punk, hard rock, etc. it has a nice dark trashiness, but it is accompanied by a nice tone. the different sound characteristics blend together into a great sound, and ive never heard a cymbal quite like it. when in the mix with drums, it is not that loud, but its unique tone provides a nice cut which is, like i said, very unique and different from any other cymbal. also when in the mix, it has a noticeable quickness to it. this cymbal works great when playing music by bands like A Day to Remember, Asking Alexandria, Pierce the Veil, etc. i highly recommend this cymbal, its worth every penny

This cymbal absolutely sucks! I got the 16" on Christmas 2010 and I completely hate it! It sounds like your throwing a rock at an old trash can. It has way too much overtone. Im switching to a Sabian AA Fast Chinese 18" which I recommend to everyone. They should really stop making this cymbal cause it sucks.
