I use this ride for a short time. I bought a 200 type trs cool on the Internet, and I do not regret buying this at all!
What I like about this ride (and which is my game with my group right now) is its flexibility. It is fairly thin (it can bend easily by hand), we feel the baton "back" in force when a little game, crash.
The harmonics are great (a low note is long enough when approaching the ear of the cymbal, it's magic! The bell is quite powerful but not too sche. This is a major CHARACTERISTICS: This trs ride is not powerful. So no need to play it in a metal, it will take him a ride prfrer + Paisse with Ping Dfine more. The ping of the cymbal is Dfine but lightweight, subtle (I play with the MODEL "Ride Stick" by Peter Erskine)
I used to play on a ride over bcp Scheer and dark. A wrinkle tinkering in fact, an old Meinl 20 "I had 12 holes drilled in, let marinate for a few days in a damp hole in the ground, then polished and dcap, .. A sacr hard, but I liked the final sound!
May be to buy later one second ride more "rock" to broaden my palette of sounds, but for now, in the context pop-rock-atmo I play with the group Mygk (cin -concert) this ride is all done shows!
Ct price, I was very lucky to find this ride 200. By adding 10 for postage, I made a nice economy, knowing that I make the order in any store in my region.
And (something not ngligeable) ct look, she is beautiful. It has the traditional color of Avedis, but with a more pronounced hammering but shallower than the big sisters Constantinople. On top, no logo, but a buffer Zildjian Black (style handmade) with the traditional symbol that appears on the laser engraving in smaller, + the words "A Zildjian & Cie - vintage". On the bottom, we find the Zildjian logo, plus the signing of Armand Zildjian grave above! Class!
