Created from cast bronze alloy of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver, this Zildjian cymbal is symmetrically machine hammered and lathed with a traditional wide groove.

I purchased this splash back in 2008 and I liked it at first because i was just excited to have a new cymbal but after a while I realized that when I was playing live it didn't cut through the sound like splashes are supposed to. It still sounds good for studio work, though. Lastly, I would reccomend either Zildjian A Custom ReZo splashes, K splashes, or any Paiste splashes. Then again, every Zildjian cymbal sounds different no matter what they call it.
This splash is great but certainly not the greatest. It's good because you can use it in funk and hip-hop but when it comes to any other style of music, these just don't make the cut. There is an annoying overtone that shouldn't be there and when you want it to cut through the sound like splashes are supposed to do, it doesn't. However, it's great for beginners/intermediates.
This is a very fast, sharp, clean-sounding cymbal. I absolutely love it. I have had the 10" model for almost a year and a half, and it has withstood everything I have thrown at it. The sound is bright and lively, but controlled at the same time. I would recommend this cymbal to anyone looking for a great add-on to their setup.
I have had my 8" splash for several months now and absolutely love it. I've used this in orchestral pit work for school musicals as well as in a jazz combo and big band situation. If you want that vintage splash sound, here you go. 8" is the best size for something splashy. 10" and bigger sound like small crashes. The 6" is basically just a bell and sounds a little clangy.
I've had this for a while and its pretty good except if you hit it hard the sound just kinda cuts out which really kinda gets on my nerves. When i play I've been kinda hesitated to hit it hard because I'm afraid it will break and its a lot of money for a 10" cymbal. It has a really nice bright sound if you hit it soft or normal but if you play hard don't count on hitting it to much
The Avedis 10" Splash is a great sounding musical splash. A bit more substantial sound than your average splash cymbal, I use it more like a crash, especially in quieter settings or for a more subtle accent. It doesn't have the warbly toy sound like many splashes, and as such I consider it to be more of a mini-crash.
I purchased the 10" and i think it's amazing. The sound it produces adds a great effect to my kit. It has a really bright sound with a quick decay. I've owned it for a few months and it seems to hold up nicely. A must-have for all Alternative/metal drummers!
