I am a professional drummer with 30+ years experience. My cymbals are Zildjian and Paiste. I bought this set mainly for the 13" hats for my practice kit and I figured getting another couple of cymbals in this pack instead of just the hi hats was worth a try - I'm reasonably impressed. The hats are bright with a decent chick sound and are not particularly loud, which I like. The 14" crash is bright with a fast decay but also has a lower harmonic which sticks out and isn't very pretty on it's own, I doubt it would be apparent in a gig environment, tho. It sounds like a medium instead of a thin - a thin would have been better, I think. The splash is pretty good, fast, loud, quick and bright - its a useful addition. The ProMark sticks are the size that I use and I don't particularly need beginner's drum lessons so 1 of 2 of those add ons is a pretty good score. These would be a good starter cymbal pack, add a ride and you're all set. If you remember that these are not top shelf cymbals (without the top shelf price tag) you will like them, I think. I feel perfectly happy with the purchase and would recommend them for a beginning drummer or for a practice set.

Decent Hats -- weak crash but good overall value

I was impressed with the 13 inch hats but the crash sounds brassy.

    Purchased 4 sets. Made 8 pairs of marching cymbals for 4th and 5th grade drum line. Perfect size for the small hands and arms. Very nice sound for the money.
