Cheap, cheerful, surprising...

Duncan M., 17.07.2013
I got my first one of these cymbals at the end of 2010. I predominantly play extreme metal (mostly within the post- and doom categories), and occasionally jazz. So in a ride cymbal, I look for a wide variety of sounds, but definition is still important.

The good thing is, this cymbal gave me that. When played with the tip of the stick, a nice pingy sound is heard, especially if using nylon tips. The bell is nice and defined, but not overpowering - especially when compared to other cymbals (Paiste Alpha Rides can have ridiculously loud bells, I prefer the PST3!). Where I found the best sounds of the cymbal though, was in the heavier playing - I usually mount my ride cymbal a bit higher up, so I can use it as a crash and play with the side of the stick a lot. And it really delivers, getting everything from a shimmering light crash that really fills out the sound to a monstrous explosion of a crash.

Unfortunately, it's not all good news. Mine did start to develop some cracks, but considering that it was over two years old and it is a cheap cymbal, that can be expected. I found that it's not too great for jazz either - it's a bit too... Bland? I guess. Certainly when compared with some (admittedly more expensive) Zildjians, it lacks a lot of character and warmth.

But for rock/pop/metal/anything that isn't jazz/soul/r'n'b, this cymbal will do the job if you need a replacement fast, or if you're starting out. Due to being too poor to upgrade, I got another one as soon as my first one cracked. Well worth the money.

Nice cheap cymbal for beginners. Not worth it's price anymore, cause there is cheaper and better quality cymbals in sale today. Goes well in training, but useless in studio.
