Your general opinion of this product.
I've just received my 17" HHX Evolution crash to replace a 16" Paiste sig full crash that served me well for many years but finally cracked. A lot of drummers talk about how well their crashes compliment each other. Well, I'm not like that. I like my crashes to differ from one another so I have other voices to choose from. Let me tell you that this HHX crash is really something special. It even does as I've read - opens up just by tapping on it with a finger. The response is so immediate even with a light stick hit. It has good volume & a penetrating cut for a thin cymbal. It's bright for an HHX too, but retains that beautiful tone they are known for. I have and had many crashes thru the years but nothing quite like this. The cool flashy finish completes this amazing cymbal.
