Fine, subtle China - it's a shame!
Cacik, 29.01.2018
Actually, I am a staunch supporter of the old-school Wuhan-China faction and there are not many modern China basins that I listen to. The 18-inch Dark Matter by Zultan is one of them. I liked the soundfiles when I first heard them and now I ordered three songs. One of them fits perfectly with my 20's Dark Matter Ride, to which it now hangs. Two mates who are having fun together - well, first! There are China plates that are brutally loud. My 16th Millennium is such a candidate. Haunting like a saber tooth tiger; loud, aggressive and scary. Quite different this dark sweetheart of Zultan: it can be quiet and dynamic play and it can be fine ride. Chinabecken hang with me basically with the brim down. Of course, as a percussionist, I use the same with my paws. Ridden with the stick on the brim is fantastic. And, what is lost when you play the plate the other way around: the kink. You'll wonder what's possible in a moderate pace for sounds! Working with felt mallets anyway is the screamer. The basic tone of the pelvis is deep and warm, but rather restrained. Maybe it's because of my dead isolated rehearsal room. The overtones are very pleasant, nothing penetrating in it. All in all a very pleasing sound. The final volume will probably not be enough for friends of the harder gait. The pelvis is relatively thin. Who has strong upper arms and can do well, whose joy will probably be short lived.
To quality:
It is now my seventh Zultan Becken, the sixth from Turkish production and I always had something to complain about. Not centered holes, Macke, not cleanly deburred. So here too. The edge is quite sharp at one point. It would be very desirable if the Junx in Stambul finally paid more attention to the quality.
Conclusion:
If you're looking for a China cymbal, which is more than noise, if your style of playing is rather moderate, if you like fiddling with sounds, then you're in the right place with the Zultan 18 "China Dark Matter! a complex cymbal for jazz and fusion - and everywhere, where not the phono rank comes first, as always with Zultan a point deduction with the quality sound and price / performance ratio top! Definitely not my last cymbal from the Dark Matter series of Zultan, and please order more, so your chances of getting a good pelvis to match your set will increase significantly.

Great looks and fine sound

Very "fine" China basin, ie for heavy metal, and other games in the highest dynamic range, but rather less suitable, otherwise clear recommendation buy recommendation on my part. To the price there is probably nothing comparable.
