Good cymbals - lots of character!
29.03.2015
I purchased this set to complement the Sabian AAXs that I use; I wanted a bit more variety. As with all handmade cymbals, no 2 cymbals of the same type/size will sound exactly the same so I was a little bit nervous about differences to the samples on the website. In truth, there are slight differences but the sounds on the website do get across the character of these cymbals.

14" hats:

I really like these hi-hats. They have a dirty/dark/washy sound to them, yet a brilliantly bright 'bark'. They have a really nice 'chick' sound when using your foot to close them together. The only slight issue I have with them is that (as is the case with handmade cymbals), they are not 100% perfectly round which means they don't sit together 100% 'flush' when the footpedal is closed. This is really only an aesthetic issue - they play perfectly well; I just need to adjust the hi-hat stand slightly to stop the bottom had from sticking out and chewing up my sticks!

20" ride:

It took me a while to get comfortable with this ride but it's got a lot of character. The multi-lathing means that you can get different sounds from this ride; brighter sounds from the brilliant parts and slightly darker sounds from the un-lathed parts. Stick definition is excellent and the bell is very nice as it's not overpowering but is still loud enough to be heard easily. My only reservation is that it's not really crash-able unless you really hit it - I'm not a heavy hitter and I'm used to using ride cymbals which open up at medium volumes - however, the stick definition makes up for this.

16" crash:

I love this crash. It's not too loud, not too bright but opens up even at low volumes. It sounds great with sticks or mallets and cuts through really well when hit with sticks.

18" crash:

I also love this crash. Quite complex; it can be used as a crash ride as well as a crash but really cuts through as a crash cymbal.



Overall, I really like these cymbals. They seem to be good quality, they have loads of character, are cracking value and they even come with a cymbal bag (which isn't mentioned on the website) - bonus!

Good value for money. Ride is the weakest. Overall nice set close enough to big brands sound.

Muy buenos!
Charlie2, 10.01.2017
La verdad es que por el precio total es un set de gama media que suena muy bien y tiene muy buen cuerpo y peso a la hora de golpearlos.
Recomendadisimo para quien quiera invertir en platos nuevos y tenga un presupuesto medio. Como pack esta genial.
Si a caso alguna pega es que el Ride tiene mucho sustain pero no se nota al tocarlo en conjunto y mucho menos a la hora de captar el sonido con micro.
Para grabaciones, ensayos e incluso en directo suenan perfecto.

Absolut gutes Set
xrichx, 27.03.2019
Habe mir dieses Set bestellt nachdem ich ein anderes Set von Zultan zurückgeschickt habe das mir wenig zugesagt hat. Spiele sie nun seit gut 4 Jahren und habe bis dato keinerlei Beanstandungen.

14" Hi-Hat: sehr chrashiger Sound und sehr laut. Der klick ist allerdings etwas flach, da die Becken auch relativ schwer/dick sind. Für feinfühligere Spielweise eher nicht gedacht.

16" Crash: Ist ein nettes Becken, hat aber mMn. gegenüber dem 18" Crash den Vorteil das es ein schnelleres Ansprechverhalten hat aber auch den Nachteil das der Sound eher zu hell & zu kurz für das Gesamtset ist. Für kurze Fills gut, für längeres spielen nicht geeignet.

18" Crash: Das Sahnestück des Sets, hat zwar nicht so ein knackiges Ansprechverhalten, ergo man muss es schon etwas stärker anspielen um einen feinen Crash Sound herauszubekommen, dafür aber ein wunderschönes Volumen, das auch perfekt verläuft. Allerdings auch hier, durch das Gewicht bzw. die Stärke des Materials, eher für Rockigere Spielweise geeignet.

20" Ride Becken: Sehr schöner Klick sound, den man mit den verschiedenen Bereichen am Becken schön variieren kann. Auch reicht hier schön eine leichte Spielweise um einen schönen Sound herauszubekommen. Für einen Chrash aufbaue eher weniger geeignet, aber noch möglich mit entsprechenden Stick Einsatz. Die Bell ist vielleicht ein wenig zu wenig groß bzw. akzentuiert, tut aber was es soll, wenn man es perfekt erwischt.

Alles in allem, bin ich zufrieden, hatte es bereits live, als auch bei div. Aufnahmen im Studio im Einsatz und konnte sogar schon Kollegen damit begeistern die es dann auch gekauft habe. Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ist unschlagbar. Generell gilt aber, das Set ist vor allem für den rockigeren/lauten Einsatz gedacht und kann im Proberaum schon tlw. zu laut sein.
