I've had two weeks, and I love him already! I previously had a mega bell Z custom in 21 "and a pro sonix 20. What I like about this cymbal is first the monstrous side as assault (24"). It sounds hard, and resonates long ... very long ... On the manufacturing front, it's tough, thick, heavy (in view of nose I would say between 5 and 6 pounds), so expect a good start or a good big boom arm. The price may seem high, but this cymbal is almost IMPOSSIBLE, especially in the version with hammering star. This one I'm not about to get rid of, so choice I do it again without hesitation.
