"This cymbal is huge and powerful and perfectly encapsulates that classic Bonham sound. The bow is surprisingly articulate given the size. You can play fast doubles and they still come through clear. The bell is several steps higher in pitch than the bow (which I love/need) and is large enough to hit easily. It produces massive, icy tones which cut through any mix. The crash is thunderous and shimmering, although it takes quite a lot of energy to get this heavy cymbal moving. It responds well to glancing strikes with the shoulder of the stick, closer to your hand than you might hit a crash cymbal. The tone is a beautiful balance of focus and wash, somewhere between a Rude Power Ride (dry) and a Giant Beat (wash)." - italianavalanche
"A monster. A lot of ping, low pitched rumbling wash also with a layer of delicate, densely mixed brilliant wash on top. Rather sensitive, and very controllable thanks to its size. Can be built up, played all out or played softly depending on where you strike. Killer bell that wakes up the whole cymbal, very integrated sound. Grand body sound that is very present. Does not crash well, but can be "crashed" for a loud, colossal ring." - Akahito
