You get what you pay for
By the green end
I bought this set of cymbals because they were the cheap and I just wanted something to bang on to practice. For that reason, they get three stars. Unfortunately, they sound terrible, have little dynamics, and don't bounce well. I was especially disappointed in the high hats, which have a distracting high-pitch overtone. Being a rock drummer this is a deal breaker as they're a big part of the performance. Next time I would consider trying to find used cymbals or purchase one at a time of a little higher quality.

i love it
these cymbals are considered low budget to most people compared to the B8 line. but i think these sound awesome in my own opinion. id give them an 8/10 on the sound for the price :)

Best ever, nah, but tremendous value and they do sound great!
By W. Pavlik
My son bought these for his birthday present of the Gammon drums that Amazon sells for $260.
We had played some Sabians at a local music store. They wanted $150 for a USED set of High Hats and another $120 for a single crash cymbal.
He told me to look on Amazon before we spent his birthday money.
These are AMAZING and bright. High Hats are crisp, the crash sounds great and the ride has good dynamics on both the bell and the cymbal toward the edge.
Are these the "best cymbals ever"? Probably not. But they are REALLY nice, especially for a drummer starting out.
I sprung for the Square Trade warranty for 2 years, because, starting drummer. They could end up getting cracked, but I sort of doubt that will actually happen. I would highly recommend them after playing them a bit.
