I recieved this for christmas through www.midwestpecussion.com. I believe it cost around $41. I always like adding splash cymbals.
Punchy-quick sound, melodic. I would say it has a glassy sound, very quick decay. It is an interesting sound, being an odd size. Not as quick as a 6", but faster than an 8".
It is a small cymbal, it can be hard to hit quickly!
Seriously, being so small, I found it a little hard to position how I first wanted, the tilter on the stand was very close to the tom I had it situated over. If you don't mind it being in the open, it won't be a problem.
This is a high quality cymbal. Part of Sabian's Signature line, it dosen't leave you wanting. It comes in the brilliant finish only, and looks great.
The cymbal itself is very thin, but strong, I'm sure it will last me years to come.
A great accent to any drumset, large or small. This cymbal sounds great in many situations.
- What is so special that you like most and least?
I like: the résonnane following acute impact
but I wish it sounds even longer
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I already have a splash Zildjian Avedis 10 "
and my second I wanted to splash Zildjian EFX # 1 in 8 "with a very sharp and bright its almost like a bell but with a splash attack
This cymbal maker do the more I wanted a cymbal that is closest
after covering the sites of brands cymbables, I listened to all the samples
Mike Portnoy and 7 "is the closest
so I bought her eyes closed, without trying it for real
and I do not regret, it is very nice
- How would you rate the quality / price?
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I would try a maximum of cymbals before, and if none I like more, yes I would do this choice
PS: it says I play with the two splash, so I will play with a splash I would take probably a high school (why Mike Portnoy in 9 "it should sound - an acute or AAX 8" by exemble)
