Yes, sorry. Yeah, it's a great sounding cymbal. Have you ever played a Sound Control before? It's a different animal. I used to love the sound control crashes.

I actually have a first-generation 20" SC ride, and also a first-gen SC 14" crash. So, two nice, old cymbals. The 20" is light enough to actually be a nice, dark crash, if I want it to be. This one looks a bit heavier, larger (of course), and maybe brighter with the brilliant finish. How is the bell on it? I like a pretty clear, strong bell … Thanks!

The bell is strong. It's got a good crash sound too. Contrary to popular belief, the brilliant finish doesn't make cymbals brighter sounding. The brilliance is achieved by buffing the cymbal heavily before the lacquer coating is applied. That buffing grinds down some of the microscopic ridges that the lathing creates in the grooves and on the crests of the grooves, and actually attenuates that ultra high end brilliance a bit.
