It's good for Crashing and okay for Riding
12.05.2014
It's defiantly got more of a crash feel to it but it's a good beginner cymbal if you want to have something that fills the role of a ride and a crash. I've lent mine to a friend who only uses basic beginner cymbals for a live show and he said it's a huge improvement.

Defiantly a good first purchase and it's still in one piece since I got it in 2012

Great starter cymbal for the money
TheCoda, 19.12.2015
If you're looking for a quality slightly smaller than normal starter ride cymbal with reasonable sound/¤ ratio then this is your thing.
+ Well built, no surface imperfections on my sample
+ Ride sounds nice, easily controllable, and doesn't burst into muddy overtones easily

+/- Crash sound is subjective (or a matter of taste), I didn't like it that much, but it wasn't "bad".
