Great sounding cymbal with quality issues
Vykintas 22.03.2020
This is a review after 7 months of owning the cymbal.
About the cymbal - the sound is medium bright (not too bright), and the thickness is medium-thin - perfect for crashing on it. I really liked the sound of the cymbal, especially considering the price, however it sounded almost identical to a Zultan Caz 17" crash that i ordered on the same shippment (even their sound samples sound similar!). That bugged me a little, but i still loved it. It can be used in every genre i could imagine - really versatile.
Now onto the downsides - my first RB crash cracked along the groove near the bell after 5 months. This was my first cracked cymbal in 11 years of playing drums. Besides the crack - the cymbal had a very noticeable dent since day one, as if someone were to run through it with a screwdriver.
Thomann replaced the cymbal no questions asked, and in a very timely manner, the WHOLE process took just one week! Great customer service.
The replacement's sound was significantly different - sounded more heavy. I liked that because now my crashes sounded differentely. However, this cymbal looked way worse than the first one - the outer groove was messed up almost throughout the whole cymbal - one part looked like it was going to crack really soon - the defected groove was really prominent, easily felt while running through it with a finger (probably a B stock?). I have since returned the cymbal and opted for a money back.
Advise for buyers - inspect the cymbal thoroughly and search for grooves that are a lot darker (too deep). Despite that it is a great crash cymbal, and you cant really beat the price.

Great for this Price!
Ahzekelion 03.11.2020
I got both the 16'' and 18'' Rock Beat crashes to use in a practice enviroment.

They have a good response even when hit with a somewhat lighter touch. I play them mostly for hardrock/metal but have also used them for Jump Blues.
They get dirty real quick though, so be careful with handling!

Bang for buck!

Best low cost cymbal
Staffan81 25.03.2015
This crash cymbal is the best low cost cymbal i have ever tried. Better than all "high brand low cost" alternatives which usually have a cheaper bronze alloy (B8 or B10). This sounds like a real cymbal with the only flaws might be some minor cosmetic stuff (like black spots, or some imperfections in the casting) which so far har not caused any cracking. Basically you get two cymbals for the price of one "real" cymbal. I would recommend this to anyone for rehearsal and live gigs where wear and tear is common. I have also used them in the studio with good result.
