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

Very good price / quality ratio
go_faustino, 16.02.2021
It's a nice beginner cymbal. Very good build quality, sturdy and with a nice finish to it. The ride sound is great, the crash is not that bright, but it fulfils the function well enough if you need both in a single cymbal. The bell sound is distinctive and gives a few more options to try and learn new stuff.

du tout bon
Paul D. 326, 15.05.2021
je n'ai jamais eu une cymbale qui mélange les sons long et court sans aucunes agressivité. 2 cymbales en une. je recommande.

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".
