For the price, this cymbal performs very well with sustained rolls, sudden hard hits and gentle sticking on the bell.
Although it is suited to a big band, modern orchestral music and light pop/punk genres, this crash offers extreme flexibility with brushes, mallets and hard sticks.
The sound is very bright and can be compared to Madonna's "Material Girl" with a shorter decay. The crash seems to perform equally at all volume levels when struck on the edge, but does have a minor loss of sparkle when hit along its flater surface.
For anyone wanting to expand their drum kit, or simply need a quick and cheap replacement, this is one of the better options for a more consistent sound.
