Not perfect, but pretty close

I've been playing for a long time with the minimal hihats-ride-two crashes setup that's so common, and wanted to try using something different - but without spending a huge amount of cash on something I might not use. I picked up this pack almost entirely because of the price, deciding that even if the cymbals sounded awful I'd at least have three new sounds to play with.

Having used them for a few months and a few gigs now, I can report back. The splash cymbal is perfectly serviceable; it produces a clear and fast sound and does exactly what it's meant to. My only criticism is that it's slightly quiet for the style of music I play, but even then it's not a big concern.

The china splash sounds good, but far too quiet. I've more or less stopped using it, as it simply doesn't cut at all at loud volumes. Again, I play fairly heavy music, so this may not be a concern for others, but there's a noticeable difference in what you get out of the splash versus the china splash.

Last (but definitely not least) is the 18-inch china. There's absolutely nothing polite or refined about it; it's loud as all hell, utterly obnoxious, and absolutely fantastic. Riding on it produces clear tones, but it's made for wailing on, and it easily outstrips my explosion crashes for overall volume.

The pack as a whole is a very decent buy for anyone looking to try out some new sounds, but if you're playing heavy music and you're trying to stretch your budget, forget about the china splash and just accept that you're getting a perfectly decent splash and an utterly vicious china for a ridiculously good price -the china alone is worth the price of admission. I had absolutely no regrets about buying the pack, and have shelved my initial plans to upgrade after a year.

A really amazing set for this price.

I bought this set purely based on the audio demos I hear on - hoping they were going to be half as good as what I heard. Well, they really are just that: an excellent, ridiculously low priced set of effect cymbals which sound better than many competitor's similar 'entry level' type offerings do - per piece, even. I've heard splashes that cost 60 EUR and which do not sound significantly better than the 10" one included in this set. The china's - and there's two of them, 12 and 18 inch - have enough bite to serve their purpose, but also a quite lovely, washy "aaah" sound when played at lower velocities. Much more versatile than I expected. They're all quite thin cymbals, obviously, but I have been smacking them silly, with no damage to them so far. So it's not as if these are crappy build quality, either.
At this price: five stars overall, and highly recommended for those who are either on a tight budget and/or just starting out.

Just got the set. The quality of the sound is just fine - especially for this price. 12" china is something I'd never bought separate but as a part of this set it suits me just fine. This effect set for the price is just perfect. Cymbals are not very thick so might not be perfect for metal music. Apart from that it's a must buy for budget.
