      Overall this Cymbal gives more bang than you'll give in bucks. Try it out I'm sure you wont regret it. I sure didnt
      Nice Washy sound, I personally wish it would ring a bit more. This Cymbal looks great and gets the job done.
      The Quality as far as durability goes imo it's quite tough. I'm a hard hitter and I just ruin this thing and it's still like new.
      Well this is the best part! A quality Entry/Intermediate cymbal for the cost of next to nothing. Cant go wrong here. For all other like cymbals this is the best by far imo.

      Just wanted to add another Splash to the left wing of my Kit; Went with the 8 inch- it sounded best in the demo vid, and was dirt cheap; So this seemed easy and very affordable. I have to say im surprisingly disappointed with this cymbal. It had enough good reviews... but in my opinion, dont bother with this one, its pretty lifeless- I wasnt expecting miracles, but Ide rather have my cash back!

                  Bought this for my son who is a passionate drummer that has been playing for the past year and a half. He loves this brand of cymbal and now has nine different cymbals in total of this brand. They have a great sound and durability. I would buy more of this brand in the future.

                      The sound is very bright and not too deep. And I love that it doesn't ring on forever and ever. It's a great product and would love to try the 10 and 12 inch splash cymbals next.
