Amazing Cymbal!
Raj333, 10.06.2018
This cymbal is brilliant. Sounds super dark.

Unfortunately, I cracked mine but this wasn't due to the cymbal at all. I play some quite heavy, loud music and this cymbal just isn't made for a heavy hitter. This is however one of my favourite cymbals I have ever played.

Bombencrash!
maxib, 25.01.2017
Ich habe mir das 18" Dark Matter als Ersatz für mein gerissenes (!) 16" A-Custom gekauft.
Ich spiele technisch auf einem höheren Niveau und weiß, wie man Becken nicht anschlagen sollte. Dass mich nach 5 Jahren nun mein A-Custom (NP damals i-wo bei 250 ¤!) mit einem kleinen Riss überrascht, hat mich schwer enttäuscht.

Vorab: Der Sound, Qualität und Preis sind absolut spitze.

Um bei Livegigs oder längeren Proberaumsessions keine böse Überrschung zu erleben, habe ich mir dieses 18" Crash in Ergänzung zu meinem 18" AAXplosion und 20" A-Custom Ride zugelegt.

Es ist zwar deutlich leiser im "Dauercrashbetrieb" als das Sabian, hat aber einen unglaublich tolle, "swishigen" Sound, der für den Crashteppich im Rock super geeignet ist. Natürlich ist der Sound nicht mit den K-Custom oder Byzanze Becken vergleichbar, erreicht aber eine erstaunliche Ähnlichkeit!

Der Sound gliedert sich auch super bei den Oberklassebecken ein, lediglich der niedrigere Lautstärkepegel kann eventuell in der härteren Gangart nachteilig sein. Die Ansprache, das Ausklingen, der Sound und das Feeling sprechen aber eine deutliche Sprache, ich bin ein totaler Fan dieses Beckens und werde mir sicherlich auch mal das 19" anschauen.

Über den Preis ist nicht zu diskutieren, türkische Hand-made Becken in dieser Qualität und mit diesem Sound sind einfach zu kaufen!

Vivahteikas, tummasoundinen, joskin hieman hiljainen crash
NeonGhost, 28.06.2017
Ostin tämän pellin Thomannin demoäänitysten perusteella tukemaan Zildjianin K-sarjan 18" Dark Thin Crashia setin toiselle puolelle.

Pakkauksen avattuani ensimmäisenä silmään pisti pellin ulkonäkö - tumma pinnoite on yllättävän tyylikäs.

Pelti on suhteellisen paksu, mutta soi siihen nähden kohtuullisen herkästi, ilman taustakuminaa tai muita häiritseviä sivuääniä. Soundi on pääsääntöisesti kuiva ja tumma - ehkä hieman suoraviivainen ja "teollinen" suhteessa K-sarjalaisiin. Jazz-touhussa tämä menisi helposti jopa crash/ridenä paksuutensa takia - pienellä volyymilla kiva pingi, joka kasvaa crashiksi hallittavan dynaamisesti.

Itsellä on pääasiallisina crasheina Zildjianin K-sarjan Dark Thinit (16" ja 18"), ja niihin nähden Zultan Dark Matter on selvästi hiljaisempi ja paksuutensa takia syttyy suhteessa hieman hitaammin. Itse soundi sopii mielestäni kuitenkin hyvin yksiin Zildjianin tummien peltien kanssa. Varsinkin 18" Dark Thiniä tämä Zultan tukee mainiosti isoissa aksenteissa.

Suosittelen Dark Matteria varauksetta hieman dynaamisemmalle soittajalle, joka etsii suoraviivaista, tummaa, matalasointista crashia.

HUOM! Ulkonäöstä huolimatta en henkilökohtaisesti suosittele tätä peltiä raskaaseen soitantaan / metallihommiin. Dark Matter ei ole kovaääninen pelti. Näinollen äänenpainetta hakiessa sitä saattaa soittaa "liian lujaa", jolloin pellin parhaat ominaisuudet katoavat ja se hajoaa herkemmin.
