I used it for almost three years. Absoluemnt It is unique, no other Chinese cymbal like him. It is very versatile, but precisely, it is never exactly in his element. It lacks power very slightly on the aggressive music. I try other model, the Meinl (Byzantium), from Zildjian (EXT ZHT). For value for money, I do not know, this is a model that pays a high price and is very rare. I do not know if I referrer choice. For acoustic music, or even to rock is good. For metal, harder to say. If it should be only one China in his set, it is as versatile, but with another cymbal more aggressive, it's ideal. Today it is the sound I seek, but a good choice.
