      My first cymbal, I tried a few in a music store and decided this had the best ride sound of everything in price range. Works as a crash too.
      After developing my skills I started looking for more cymbals, and wanted to go with a dark jazz sound, Zildjian.
      Well I spent 3 x as much, on a K Dark crash and yes that has exactly the sound I had in my brain, but really too much for a cymbal, if you're just playing at home and recording.
      I found a used Sabian 20" heavy ride for 2 x as much, with a cool dark sound and that's great, better than this …However, during recording it does have a sustained ring that is loud.
      So for recording, I went back to using this 18" B8 for my ride, because the ring is less noticeable.
      So, don't think you're gonna out grow it, dump it.

      When I first started I had this cymbal and used it as a crash and a ride. I have had it for about 3 years, still it sounds great and I record with it as a crash and sometimes a ride. I am upgrading my set and getting all new Z Custom cymbals. I have a Sabian B8 Pro Power rock ride and i use that as my "CLEAN" ride, but i use this for playing alot of old IRON MAIDEN songs. It is almost the color of a Paiste Rude crash ride, from all of the use and now it has a darker sound from all of the wear. But I recommend it for beginners.

            I've had this cymbal for the past 8 years and two drum sets. It works great as a left hand ride, nice and BRIGHT. I don't use it much as a crash as it is slow to decay. My local music shop is always on me to upgrade but I love its sound. Other cymbals on the set are Bosphores,Zildjain and Sabian, all high end cymbals.

              Comments about Sabian B8 Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

              Great for all style of music, love the sound! Get it!
              Sounds great where ever you hit it. Has a nice long crashing sound on the edge, it has a desent size bell that cuts right through the drums. Great for all style of music from Jazz to Metal to Country.
              It will last you forever, i have had mine for six years and i am a super hard hitter and there is not one crack or dent in it anywhere.
              Way worth the money. You get two for one so you can't go wrong.

              Comments about Sabian B8 Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

              This crash ride is a good quality cymbal you can trust. I bought it after my last crash cracked during a set. This cymbal is thick and strong and sure can take a beating! To crash this is good for any genre of percussion. From soft rolls and nice ride pings in my reggae and jazz performances. To loud powerful crashes in my punk band. There is nothing this ride can't do. The only downfall of this cymbal is the bell. It is weak and sounds dead. I stay clear of the bell while playing this cymbal.

              I am very ahppy with my purchase, its two great cymbals in one for a low price.
              Sounds just like more expensive Sabian crash cymbals and ride cymbals that I've played. I use it both as my main crash and as a ride. Sounds great even when transitioning from ride to crash or vice versa.
              Great deal on an amazing cymbal.

              I like everything in it. It is better as a crash. Don't get me wrong its a good ride with a good bell but it is a better crash.

              I bought this cymbal at a local music store and was very surprised! it's a good ride, but the crash cymbal sound is incredible! Buy this cymbal if you are a newbie, or a drummer on a budget like me!

              This cymbal is one I use a lot. It works ok as a ride but extremely well as a crash ... one of the best crash rides I've played with in my opinion.
