I really liked this cymbal but I came back to my orders to check when I actually bought it because I now need to order a replacement. It lasted for 14 months of rehearsing roughly once per week (minus holidays, etc) so I would say I used it for 52-56 times 2-3hour sessions. Yes, I do hit fairly hard, when people (not that many during the past covid year) have mentioned that we are a Loud band, everybody tends to point at me and say "we have a loud drummer so we need to keep up". Still, somehow it seems disappointing when a piece of equipment must get replaced "so soon". However, I can say I liked it given that I will order another one, but this time I'll order a thinner one to see if it makes any difference in durability.
