Jon / Martin, I recently bought a 16" Crash Cymbal from your stall at Butlins. Last night at band practice, I had my first opportunity to properly give it a go! I have to say, I am seriously impressed with the quality of the cymbal, it really is top quality and everything I have been looking for in terms of sound, projection and sustain. In fact, I bought the cymbal just as an experiment, as I mine are great, but very they are very "washy" and for mic'ed gigs with my rock band, they dominate the sound through the PA system (and deafen my bass player!). I am now giving some serious consideration to replacing my current cymbals (top of the line Sabian AAxplosians) with yours. That is how highly I rate them.
