Just Perfect!
Olimjohn, 11.07.2016
Excellent deep low sound. Sustain is not very long. The sound of the bell is not pulled out of a total cymbal sound.
Special thanks to Thomann for fast delivery!

Du grand Meinl!!!
Cédric H., 21.01.2014
Cymbale parfaite pour presque tout style confondu. On appréciera le fait de pouvoir crasher avec et de revenir à un ping clair et précis sans harmoniques disgracieuses. Le dôme est également très agréable sans être trop envahissant. Tout se fond dans le mix, c'est génial.
(Au passage, la finition est sublime)

Warum heisst das Extra Dry?
Werner851, 16.04.2014
Die Optik und die Verarbeitung sind grossartig, warum das Becken unter Extra Dry läuft ist mir allerdings schleierhaft.
Sehr viel Rauschen, in welchem die Stockanschläge fast untergehen. Die Glocke ist ok, bewirkt aber auch noch recht viel Rauschen. Ich habe ein 20" Paiste Sound Formula Dry Ride, welches mir eigentlich zu viele Nebengeräusche erzeugt und ich mich deshalb nach einem Ersatz umgesehen habe. Jetzt bin ich wieder ganz verliebt in mein altes Paiste.
Der Sound im Produktvideo mit Mike Johnston hat meiner Meinung nach mit dem Klang des Beckens in Natura nicht viel zu tun. Es ist sehr laut und überzieht alles mit einem Geräuschteppich. Nicht, dass es schlecht klingt, aber eben alles andere als Extra Dry. Schade.

amazing!!!!
13.04.2016
Im excited to play this amazing cymbal!!! It's really how described: ping definition, washy sound, crashable, versatile, and when you play the bell the whole cymbal is involved... I really love it. I play mostly jazz and this ride is perfect, tho it's not very light. It's a medium weight ride. Short sustain when you crash it but long sound when you play it with the tip of the stick. Simply, WOW.
