    As reviewed by Daniel to the T3 on 8/28/2006

    This is a must buy for all active drummers. I have used it and am in the process of ordering another one and it is the bomb. The sound is so crisp and sweet. It may be a little costly, but it is worth every penny.

  • SWEET!!!!

    As reviewed by nick on 10/8/2009

    After 3 years of searching for the perfect ride i have found it! After 3 years of breaking it in it sounds amazing. With age this cymbal just gets better! The stick definition is well defined and articulate with just the right amount of "ping" and "wash" to the cymbal. Makes a very LOUD crash cymbal good for rolls and such. The dome is a bit small for my taste but it gets the job done. Playing towards the dome but not on it is a different ride more of a drier sound making it very versatile! Spend the money on this ride because its worth every penny!!!!!!!!

  • Awesome Ride!

    As reviewed by Kyle M. on 4/21/2009

    I've been using this ride for a little over a year now and it has been worth every penny I spend. If your a working musician, this cymbal quickly pays for itself. It makes a great start for anyone looking for an upgrade.
