I always have been fan of copper and rich sound but I tried to change. This cymbals are bit similar A custom but stronger. Bit smoky, bit trashy, but high tone.
Hi-hat sensitive,loud enough, but not cut opening.High-mid tone.
16'' Crash shrill and washy, but cut more at open air.
18'' Crash deeper sound but you must beat it strong. No cut and deep sustain, similar as AAX.
20'' Ride jazzy,mid tone,smoky bit washy. Bell o.k. dick in cetre,not small, not big. Cut but not as big bell at Pro sonix I had. Equilibrated sound with the rest of the cymbal, so you hear bell and ride when play eights. Shuffle goes bit washy and weak, but barril tip stick will work good.Crushable edge, open tone, sustain good, but not too loud.
When they get dirty, the sound will be darker and warmer. It is a new chalange for me. For rock I play are bit thin and weak. Loud but no body. Dick cymbals B 10 are better.For pop and jazz good. I ve played open air already and is good, not 2002 but works. Generally similar A custom and AAX.I hope they are durable.
