Amazing Cymbal

By Sammy Ciaramitaro

I had the pleasure to play this cymbal, and was depressed when I had stop playing it! The sound is great and it is a Zildjian, so it is guaranteed to be great. I would suggest this product to anyone in search for a great cymbal thats built to last.

One word. LOUD.

By Kyle

from Philadelphia, PA

This cymbal is great. Very loud. Great sustain. Extremely powerful. Its great especially if you play rock/punk/metal, any of that. I wouldn't say that its good for all styles of music. Just mainly loud, fast music. So if thats not your thing, then cymbal probably won't be your thing.

Great Loud Cymbal !

By Andy

from Kinnelon, NJ

I own the 18 inch version. It is louder than any other cymbal I have ever played ! The sustain is incredible, it lasts forever. Definitely would recommend this for any rock drummer. It is probably not very versatile for different styles of music.
