This cymbal has a beautiful clear sound and lives up to its name with a lively yet warm splash that sits nicely in the mid-range; not too high, not too low. I use this in a small church room where volume is an issue and it's nice to be able to hit a cymbal without having to hold back. It doesn't quite replace my crash as it doesn't have the same sustain but I find it great for giving a short, bright accent to my playing without deafening anyone. Even for more delicate playing it has a lovely clear sound from bell to edge.
The cymbal is solid and well-made. I've only had it a few weeks but it seems tough enough to stand up to some long-term punishment. The finish is of a high quality and in general, it's a good looking piece of kit.
For the price, this cymbal gives you your money's worth and more; all I need to do now is buy a bigger brother to keep it company in the middle of the kit.
