Great cymbal I've been using since 2004. When I bought it I liked very much the sound of several rock drummers who used it.
It's faithful to its name: the "ping" sounds very powerful! Especially when you hit the powerful bell. The sound is great both on stage or in the studio!
The problem is that this cymbal has advantages that can become disadvantages. It's great when I want a powerful bell for heavy rock but when it comes to mellow sounds it isn't that great. My previous ride sounded better (Paiste 802) for that purpose.
The best would be to have a crash/ride as a complement.
I don't regret having bought it but I would now look for a more versatile cymbal that has a better balance between attack and sustain...
