I bought this cymbal from a Guitar Center in N. California. It was purchased for $199.00 w/o tax. I needed a ride to replace my Sabian B8 Hi-Hats. I needed higher quality.
This is a very nice ride. The ping sound is very loud, but at the same time it also has very nice undertones. The bell is big sounding, clear, clean and crisp. It comes in brilliant finish only. It is a very nice ride.
I can't really say much, but the one thing that I can sasy is that the undertones are a little too much, I was kind of expecting more ping qualities, rather than a wash or lots of undertones.
It comes in brilliant finish. And can be purchased in 20 or 22". It gets fingerprints very easily, but you can take that off w/ cymbal cleaner. Thats what I did, because the cymbal was the display, and it had many prints on it, but I cleaned it off right away w/ some Cymbal cleaner.
If you are looking for a ride with strong ping qualities, with a little bit of undertones, this is the ride for you. If you want a ride with few undertones and very loud sticking, I wouldn't suggest this ride.
