  • Summary: Very poor sound quality. Returned and got an HHX Evolution instead. Bottom line: You get what you pay for.

Money well spent

  • Summary: This cymbal added a bunch of sound and versatility to my kit's playability. Although it is not a "top of the line" cymbal, it is a quality Sabian crash. It works perfectly for what type of music I play, which requires jazz/funk groove drumming as well as heavier play when it's time to get loud. This cymbal keeps up with it all. With a little bit of practice, you'll find that evoking the sounds you want only takes a good understanding of how to hit this cymbal.

Good Solid Crash

Michael A. Gallardo "GMoney", amazon.com
28 February 2010
  • Summary: This was my frist Crash I had to get a new one because I cracked up my old one. I had the other Crash for a good three or so years before it started to crack up. So they are good solid Crashes I like the sound too. Good for the money I had a ZHT and that started to crack before my Sabian here.

My Alltime Favorite Crash!!!!!!!

Snaredog "Snaredog", amazon.com

  • Summary: I have two and love them! I play all kinds of music and they sound awesome at any price but the fact that they are so cheap is incredible! I play in a Neil Diamond tribute band and they are extra sensitive for that but I also play mostly metal and they are ALWAYS loud enough. They have such a beautiful tone that dosent get tinny with age like the Zildjian's and Paiste's do and are less expensive to boot, plus are way more durable.

It's okay

Glen, amazon.com

  • Summary: Like I said, it's okay. You're getting a cheap cymbal. You can't expect it to play like one that costs 3 times as much. The B8 bronze is softer, quieter, and has more overtones than the B20 bronze used in higher end cymbals. However, as cheap cymbals go, I like this better than the Zildjians. If you don't have the money for an AAX, this one will do fine until you do.

Excellent beginner cymbal

Diane Kapustka, amazon.com
18 December 2007
  • Summary: If you want a higher pitch cymbal with fairly quick decay and great quality for less than 80 bucks, look no further, this is a must have. I have this cymbal along with my other crash (16" medium-thin zildjian zht crash), and this cymbal was almost the perfect pitch and sound i was looking for. (4 out of 5 because its a little on the quieter side, at least its much more quiet than my zht crash, but thats probably due to the fact that it has a smaller bell.
