In case you really, really
are in no position to try cymbals in person, watch videos from mycymbal.com. Those samples are quite accurate, but I personally wouldn't buy a cymbal based on a video.
Buying cymbals shouldn't be a headache, it should be "oh I want that, and that, and that! And that one! :D But I don't have enough money... :( "
