perfection as always from Zildjian!! Warm dark sound with nice decay if your looking for a crash cymbal with slightly more body than a K Custom dark crash this is the one for you.

Absolut empfehlenswert! Riskiert mehr Klang!
Dominik L., 12.10.2009
Ich wollte endlich ein bischen mehr Dynamik in mein Beckenspiel bringen, diese 0815 Crash sounds waren mir irgendwie nichtmehr genug. Da hat mich die Dark Series direkt angesprochen. Der Sound ist schön dunkel aber nicht zu sehr! Die Obertöne sind trocken und ein bischen dreckig und erweitern so das Klangspektrum.

Die Ansprache ist sehr gut, sehr direkt für ein 18" Becken, also ziemlich musikalisch. Man kann das Becken meiner Meinung sehr variabel einsetzen. Ob man es Heavy mag und da ordentlich draufklatscht oder ob man hier und da kleine Akzente setzt und so sein Spiel um eine Ebene erweitert.
Das Sustain ist eher kurz, was mir persönlich sehr gut gefällt, da der dunkle Klang doch eher dominant ist und somit nicht alles übertönt.

Alles im allem muss man sagen, dass es kein gewöhnliches Crash Becken ist wie man es im Radio hört, sondern schon seinen dunklen Sound hat. Wer also vorallem erstmal nur ein gutes Crashbecken sucht für die normalen 1er Crashs sollte eher auf hellere Becken setzten. Aber, da das Becken schon dark heisst könnte man schon drauf kommen, dass dieses Becken eher dafür da ist ein größeres Klangspektrum zu spielen und man somit im Endeffekt weniger "monoton" klingt.

Ich kann das Dark Crash besten Gewissens weiterempfehlen. Riskiert mehr Klang! :)

LG
Dominik

K-serie Dark Crash
Xavier651, 15.07.2011
Je cherchais une crash assez sombre, ayant jouer auparavant sur une K 18" Constantinople, elle est pour moi celle qui s'en rapproche le plus dans la serie K.
Elle répond très bien au nuance allant du léger effet aux sons crash les plus débridés.
Le son de cloche produit un très jolie "ping".
Je l'utilise en crash principale au sein d'une formation de rock progressif (un jeu avec beaucoup de nuances, des passages très lourds où elle est très à l'aise, et des passages plus jazzy) ainsi que dans un groupe de space rock, bien énergique.
Cette crash convient vraiment à tous les styles si vous cherchez un son bien gras, mais attention aux cogneurs car elle n'est pas très épaisse.
Je l'utilise depuis 2 ans et malgré les nombreuses heures de répétitions, elle est encore en parfaite état ( et pourtant j'ai une frappe assez lourde).

Mycket bra cymbal
15.01.2017
Fungerar utmärkt live och i studio. Djup men ändå varm ton. Går igenom på ett bra sätt utan att störa. Har använt den på ett antal inspelningar och får ofta komplmanger för ljudet. Rekommenderas varmt!
