It reduces the high end shimmer quite a bit, and makes the sound more "gong" like (which I don't mind). It really depends on a particular cymbal, some lose too much character and become lifeless once they are cut, others just take on new characteristics that can be integrated with the rest of the kit. (much like any new cymbal).

As far as the edge, it get's a slight camfer but it's still pretty hard on sticks for awhile. I usually sand it a bit to take off the sharpness.
