My advice, if you're on the fence, if it's this cymbal and another one and you just can't decide: Get this one!
I am nothing but happy with this cymbal's performance.
It is clean and crisp on the attack, with just enough dirt on the decay. the unique lathing pattern allows for a few distinct sounds from the bow alone.
The bell sounds great as well.
I just love the way the sound changes when playing on different places of the "bow".
It's very refined and subtile unlike any other ride cymbal.
