Summary: so I bought a cymbal pack because i needed new high hats and another crash, went to play for a little while, halfway through a song i was covering i noticed something didnt sound right, my cymbal got not one but two inch long cracks in it about 4 inches apart
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I agree with the opinions Previous by a small detail is that the cymbals is certainly not for a hard style but it still is doing not too bad if used as a crash secondary and that the goal is not to get excited about his cymbals but given just a small accent that does it all. in short, I recently purchased and I do not like following her ...
Excerpt: This has no cymbal sustain, and no potatoes, and this may well be the low end, the 402 is much better and cheaper, it can be qualities of playing acoustic but it's a good hardcore zero, a pet fly the saturated ...
