Comments about Kasza Cymbals Medium Thin Rock Crash Cymbal:

I have been a professional musician and percussion teacher for over fifty years. When I was a teenager in the 60's, I had the pleasure of a tour in MA at the Zildjian factory, and had the opportunity to learn how good cymbals were made. The experience of meeting Armand Zildjian left a very positive impression on me, and throughout many venues in my musical career, Zildjian was always there. I think there are some positive aspects to having sheet cymbals and others with B8 and B12 alloys, like the new S Series, but it all has to come down to playability and tone, the same aspects we focus on when listening to and playing a new kit or drum shell design. I have had both good and bad experiences with musical instrument products made in China, but one cannot deny that the Chinese invented the gong and their unique style of cymbals long before the Turks go into it. B20 alloy, properly lathed and maybe hammered, is the reference standard, and I would put the Kasza on par with any A Series or A Custom Zildjian. Far superior to the B8 Sabian's, probably more in line the AAX's or some of the Paragon products they offer. I am maintaining 2-3 kits now with playing out and teaching, and I heard some very encouraging things about both Wuhan's western style products as well as these from Kasza, which have superior cosmetics generally speaking over Wuhan. These are top quality product with great voicing, and don't break the bank when you need to have 2-3 different 18" crash cymbals for different kits and/or venues. While every single size and style in a series is not available as it may be in Zildjian, Sabian, or Paiste, there are enough to cover probably 80% of what drummers need in either the R Series for modern/rock music with heavier weights, or the F Series Kasza models which are lighter for jazz and smaller venues. Time will tell on the durability, but I cannot see any significant difference in the quality of manufacturer, for an average of 40% the price of others.

    Comments about Kasza Cymbals Medium Thin Rock Crash Cymbal:

    These cymbals are a well kept secret. I am completely satisfied with their quality,durability, and sound.
    I am sure you won't find better cymbals at this price. You will get a cymbal that sounds as good as the big name cymbals and use them for gigging, practice, or even recording.
    I would say if you removed the logo you couldn't tell it from an A or AA cymbal at less than half price.
    Don't play bad cymbals. These will make you smile!
