Good sound, a bit stiff and a little higher pitched than I thought it would be but it's coming around
While purchasing this cymbal my expectations were pretty high. I must say that when I received this cymbal and began playing it MOST of these expectations were met. To start, this cymbal is pretty heavy. If you are a hard hitter, this cymbal is for you. I started playing it and immediately noticed how loud this thing is. I wasn't even playing it that hard and it was way louder than my other cymbals. Its sustain will last until when you stop playing and while you sleep, its crazy long. I can tell that this cymbal definitely will not be cracking on my any time in the near future because of how heavy it is and how loud it gets, so I don't have to hit it as hard. The only con that I have for this cymbal is that the tone of it is a little sub-par. It is not very focused and sounded slighty glassy with some strange overtones to it. Other than that this cymbal is great. I would say that it would be perfect for any Rock, Metal, Grunge, Punk or any other harder genre. If you play smooth jazz or funk I would suggest looking elsewhere. Basically to sum it up, if you are looking for a cymbal that you can beat to death and will cut through your friends Marshall half stack at practice, then this cymbal is for you if you can deal with the tone not being amazing.
Just awesome. Perfect cutting power and projection. Only two things: Wasn't as heavy(I got the 19") as I thought it would be, and Guitar Center needs to handle their shipping procedure a little better, because it came with a very very small notch in the edge. But other than that, its PERFECT.
i have the 17 and 18," yes they sound GREAT individually. but if you hit them together, they dont sound like the same crash, it sounds like your hitting a rock, or heavy or maybe even a metal crash, then you hit the next one and it sounds like a thin, they just dont go well together...so ya
