What is your opinion of this product?
My review is of the 16"med-thin & 18"thin Dark crashes. Easy to describe the sound of these crashes - take the brilliant hi frequencies of the new "A" series, add in some low and mid-low frequencies, and you have the Dark crashes. Hi frequencies abound, and the additional lows give the cymbals a very "round" sound. VERY pleasing from the drum throne, but I doubt that an audience would be able to distinguish them from the new "A" series. Highly recommended, but don't expect the kind of "dark" sound you would get from an Istanbul, for instance.
