  • Phenominal Crash

    As reviewed by Aaron on 7/18/2011

    I had to wait a few months for mine in specific, but it. Was. Worth. It. It has such a bright, sound to it. It's GREAT for adding a nice, loud accent in with a beat. Though it's not so great for keeping a constant beat with because of it's very long sustain. But. Be warned, if you have it outside on a sunny day, it's like blinding. So be careful. But Great cymbal. I'd recommend to anyone.

    As reviewed by John on 3/15/2011

    these crashes originally caught my eye because of their look and price, but after playing them, i can say that they are the best crash ive ever played, apart from sabian HHXs. They are VERY loud, and on the heavy side, with a strong punch and a shimmering, roaring sound.
