I have one of these splashes for 8 years, bought second hand.
It is not very typical splash because it generates low-frequency (Manus Katché budding, go your way) but it's much more versatile. I use splash in high volume, and as a crash at low volume. Because of its sound, it blends better in a set of crash, during a "down" for example.
I played other more typical splash, and if you can afford to have lots of cymbals, it sure is better (at least in the style of Dave Weckl: super accurate, not to diffuse in two !).
At 300 francs at the time (okaz!) Is a bargain! A 100 or 150 euros, I would hesitate a little more. And now that I have the means, I would prefer something more distinctive.
Overall rating: 8 / 10 (very good stuff, versatile, but precisely, versatile ...)

This cymbal react immediately what is good for accents (fortunately for a splash), but it is not as acute as some other splash and did not sustain a very short, not as a crash but not bad already. I think it's an advantage, however, finally not a problem, in my opinion is not the versatility is his personality, one must love, if you want a splash very acute and very brief, for pure tones I think it's wrong. Otherwise it is very strong although very thin, you do not risk breaking it if you can hit a cymbal ...
You have to know to use it, I'm using it in combination with a medium thin crash Avedis 18 "(with which it blends very well), be alone but with another crash behind (a kind of rise) .
Good in price in nine is pretty expensive, but should not charier is one splash so it remains affordable, the crashes are not the same price ...
I would do this choice because it is a good splash with features to it and I find it quite original, but I'm tempted to go test K.
