Saluda 10" Splash , 14" Crash, 16" Crash, 14" hats Reviews 1

I bought these cymbals after purchasing my first drumset because they were affordable and I didn't have a lot of money to shell out on cymbals.

The Price, that's IT.

These cymbals do not sound good at all. They have a very high pitched thin metallic sound and you need to muscle them to get any kind of crash sound out of them. They sound like baking pans mounted on a cymbal stand.

These cymbals are junk. The alloy is so soft you can bend it with medium sticking. The alloy began to crack only after a few months use and i was NOT hitting it hard, because i was consiously trying to take care of my cymbals. Eventually i hit the splash and the bell completely separated with the brim of the cymbal. The crash cymbals were unusable in a matter of 3 months. I got sick of rebending them to their original shape, and eventually they just started cracking. I bought a set of zildian A medium crashes after that and never looked back.

Save your money and buy some nice cymbals. Not only are nicer cymbals more durable, they sound 1000 times better.
