How long do you use? a good ten years, in different contexts, even in jazz.
What is so special that you like most and least?
it is very effective, highly accurate, rich, warm and powerful but a little aggressive for my taste, especially with olive nylon. the bell a little torn ears. But with good control, it goes really well, especially in the studio. It does not runaway. I really like precision in the attack particularly fast games where it blows off well. She sings well, more mid-bass, it has personality. with brushes, it's lace. Very pleasant to the touch. This is a great cymbal aging well. She can play in lots of styles provided to adapt his game I personally am not a big hitter but if you type in, it really pummeled.
have you tried other models before buying it?
Istanbul signature (superb), Zildjian A, K, and a lot of cymbals in the store. The Sabian is one of my favorites. I never sold it.
How do you value?
a bit expensive but it's good!
With experience, the choice would you do?
without a doubt. It has become indispensable in my set.
