I had this cymbal for 2 years, and I changed two times due to premature breakage after the first 10 months and 9 months the second time.
This cymbal really good especially when it's do not hit hard, the sound is clear and voluminous.
on the other hand I think she does not cash the shots too, the two breaks were identical, a crack along the line of the cymbal (perpendicular to the radius) to about 2cm from the outer edge. But I play with a good angle of the cymbal and the stick, lightly whipped.
Baguetterie purchased from Lyon, I returned both times for him to return to Yamaha, Paiste.
After long weeks, they have changed me and told me a break along the line of the cymbal surely result from a defect in the series.
I just want to warn those who would be likely to buy it by paying attention to this defect.
If you have other experiences that contradict my experience or not, please specify for future users.
The rating reflects the sound quality undeniable.
I exchanged for a Signature Power of 16 ", much stronger but more brilliant and powerful.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
Sound, but what a sound! Really punchy, powerful, controllable, versatile, brilliant harmonics with a few dark notes and sustain great!
on the other hand strength issue, big problems ... Warning, this cymbal is very fragile and I broke after 2 months of use not necessarily intensive, and I'm not a bully nor in my game or style of music I did. Box displays is a concern among Paiste known, but I do not know if it has been resolved since ...? A Ask a specialist type of bag 'or whatever.
- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
Yes some upscale sabian zildjian too, but at the time I really was enchanted by the sound Paiste. Now I mainly tappe zildjian ... I crash and A K Custom Custom with more than 10 years and no fellures and also sound so interesting that Paiste.
- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Not more expensive than other premium brand, but to see the long term ...
- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
I would really like but I would really find out about the reliability of the product in question first, because the sound of this cymbal is simply superb!
