Reviews around tool (5.00 of 5)

  • It is such a great tool, however, it would not work well for heavy rock (which should be obvious), but signs great with jazz, light rock, and even a good funk groove.

Reviews around wash (5.00 of 5)

  • The ride has a nice wash with little build, and the bell's ping cuts but doesn't overpower.

Reviews around sound (3.22 of 5)

  • At nearly $400 bucks they know the 15 year old didn't buy it, so they generally make their way to me going on and on about how awesome the sound is
  • and I knew I would love the sound
  • it washes really nice as crash and has that dark kinda sound when you use as a ride, the only downfall that doesnt work for me is that the bell isnt that bright like I like

Reviews around crash (2.94 of 5)

  • What I love is it is a perfect crash/ride and often the only cymbal (except for hi-hats) that I set up for jazz and some acoustic blues
  • Zildjian describes this cymbal as dark and warm with trashy crash qualities.
  • Moreover, while Zildjian's sound sample did impart a 'trashy crash', the cymbal I have does not have this quality in a pronounced way.
  • The ride also provides an outstanding crash.
  • However for jazz and blues it is truly beautiful and it crashes as well as some dedicated crash cymbals.
