The black coating is very nice, it reminds me of the Paiste visions to those who knew. The bell sounds great, hoarse and sharp. The body sounds great too, with little "halo" around the wand. The least is that this coating can be damaged over time.
Here are the ride I've tried before: Paiste 2002, PST 5 Medium Ride and Rock, Z Custom, Sabian AA pro B8, B8 .. In short a good package.
I have not paid too much: about € 170. For a 22 ', it's still correct.
The only problem with this size cymbal c to find a house large enough! lol.
Finally, it is a good product for those seeking a cymbal powerful rocker and metal!
I have for quite some time. When bought it I liked the esthetic and rightly reasoned that this purchase! As a measure of my "evolution" is more the "sound" I'm looking and not "class" as before. Aesthetic level, nothing wrong: This cymbal is great, in addition to a drumkit with black circles is perfect! But in sound .. Quite nice but too much really resonates. With a "mute" the sound is much better but it does not exist (to my knowledge). It echoes a lot, with the edge is not even worth trying, the surlendement we hear more. After his can like a certain person! But not for me.
