    It really is a unique sound in terms of trying to intergrate it into music. I would enjoy having one just as a little effect to use, but honestly, it wouldn't get much use. I think I'd take one of those before a china, but my go-to trashy-sound cymbal is the Meinl Extra Dry Extra Thin Crash. I don't own one... but I will someday! I promise!
    I love when my cymbals talk dirty to me.

    It's not weird to not fall in love with it. I personally am not into effects cymbals much at all (i use hats and 3 rides) so I prefer a trashy ride or crash to a cymbal with holes in it. I have heard these types of cymbals in other players' setups and they sounded good, but they are unique and quite specific sounding cymbals.

    Didn't take long to find a new owner. And honestly, it doesn't feel like I'm missing it all when playing now. Guess it was the right move.

    How much did you get for it in the end? I think from your posts, that yes it was the right move. They're sought after over here as well, and are usually snapped up pretty fast, if they ever appear 2nd hand, which they don't really.

    They must have been closer to the overheads.

    Case in point why you should thoroughly test a cymbal in context with your array before making a purchase.

    Was offered 200, countered with 230 because of shipping costs and paypal fees. In the end I got screwed over with the fees and probably only made just over 200 on the cymbal. Exactly why I rarely sell on eBay anymore. Oh well.

    That's a shame, but still not that bad. I wasn't surprised it sold so quickly.
