I mistakenly ordered this instead of the Medium-thin crash I was intending on getting. I sent it back because it was the wrong cymbal obviously but first I ended up using it for a show anyway. I don't care for the sound. It fades fast sounds to trashy, which some rock drummers look for but I can't stand. The Medium-thin sounded much more musical with more resonance, I've had one for a year and it's a fantastic cymbal. Any XS20 is sturdy and a great value, but I recommend the Medium-thin variety. I also recommend you check out De Los Muertos from Manhattan, KS for great music.

I bought this cymbal in the XS20 rock cymbal pack. This cymbal sounded real nice, and it was quite loud, which is crucial when playing in a loud environment (i.e. hardcore band). But within approximately 4 months, the bell developed a crack around it. Within two more weeks of heavy playing, the crack had spread around the bell and the rest of cymbal simply fell off the bell. I was very dissapointed. I thought it would last longer. I would recommend saving your money and purchasing the higher quality Sabian AA-Metal X.

It's OK for Using as normal Crash

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought the series of 14" rock Hi-Hat, 16" Medium Thin Crash and 20" Medium Ride. Overall, I like them as the normal use. Crash seems making high pitch after the 2 second. However, If you tight them up little bit more the high pitch sound seems go away. I set the crash cymbal above the ride and it goes with ride pre-well.

Excellent For The Price

By Jay-S7Obq

from Florida

I bought the set that comes with the 16" crash and let me tell you it is one hell of a cymbal. You can hit it hard or light and still get great sound out of it. I play a variety of music and I've pounded on this thing and it shows no signs of wear. It can really take a beating. Don't muck around with other cheaper cymbals. These are cast, not sheet and sound excellent.

Sweet Cymbal

This is a really nice cymbal. It sounds a little different than other crashes it really deep sounding but a great cymbal overall for any kind of music. I really like this Cymbal over all though it's awesome.

Not bad for the price

By Habookale-uSCnG

from Kailua, HI

I played this cymbal for almost a year, and in the middle of band practice one day, it cracked around the bell. I treated the cymbal well, and was disappointed that it couldn't hold up for longer.It's a little too loud for Jazz and Funk, but it's just right for Rock and Metal. Overall a pretty good cymbal... especially for the price. But if you want a really well priced cymbal, go buy a Wuhan.

Sabian rocks

By VanHalenDrums

from Albany, NY

I have played Zildjian cymbals for a while and recently decided to try Sabian XS20s. I am very pleased at how amazing this cymbal sounds. I am definitely staying with Sabian because they have both great sound and durability.

good gift idea

By drmstix

from illinois

i've had this cymbal for about 6 months now. i have been playing for 6 years, and i have always been looking for a cymbal with a darkness that is not only sharp when you hit it, but brilliance after you hit it. this cymbal is a competitor for the zildjian avedis series at a cheaper price! sounds great when you play with a band of any type, jazz, swing, rock, or concert for student players. brings studio sound right on the stage.

these are pretty good cymbals

By justin rehab

from Coleraine, MN

I'm in a punk band, and play fast and hard, and these cymbals kept up to me. I just got a crack in the grooves of my 16 crash, but that is because I'never cleaned them so some green rust moved in, clean them and they'll last a long time. But they sound great, even the cracked one still sounds good, just with added sizzle sound. I just played a show with them, and the cracked one worked fine.

Pretty decent cymbal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This was my favorite crash (the 14") for a while, and I favored it in all of my breakdowns. Beforehand I had a 16" B8 that was just so ringy. This XS crash was terrific for the whole year time span that I had, till it recently broke at the bell. If you want a great cymbal to get you by for a while at a great price, then this is your cymbal. Just keep in mind that it won't last you forever. But it won't let you down either.

For my birthday, I bought this crash. It had good quality and sound for a reasonable price. I consider this the best crash out of my other crashes on my set. I recommend this crash to anyone who wants a heavy rock sound.

OK Cymbal

This cymbal was made too heavey and you have to kill the thing to get a good crash sound out of it, the bell cracked after about 8 months, my thin A custom has lasted over twice as long

Great Cymbal

I bought this cymbal about 6 Months ago. I can't stop crashing it. I have the 16 and it has been my main crash since i bought it. It has a powerful sound that fades quickly. It takes a beating and still no dents or marks (besides normal stick marks). Great buy!

Great cymbals for a even better price.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I have had this cymbals for about 8 months and it still sounds like it did when I first got it. It's very loud and aggressive, and its very durable and takes a pretty good beating from playing hard in my band . If you get this cymbal you won't be dissappointed.

Good but a bit to Gongy

By GBBalla13

from Grand Blanc, MI

See all my reviews

I got The 18" XS about a week ago. It's sounding pretty good but the thing is it just has a weird tone to it that sounds kind of like a gong. It's not real deep or anything but its a mix between a Crash and a Gong lol. Its good for in the middle of a beat though cuz it's hard to notice the gong part of it but at the end of a song or beat or something it just sounds weird. Its got a nice bell on it however a much better sounding bell than my ride actually. Over all it's a good cymbal I Think if you got a 16" it would sound a lot better than the 18"
