Grea,those 60's Zildjians of unusual size,sound quite washy and dark,as oppose to gongy,because the're pretty thin,with little stick definition.

You also get quite a lot of "wobble" when playing them.You can play it for a while,leave the room,have dinner and watch a movie,come back,and it's still vibrateing.You can actually see,the edge moving up an down,almost 20mm

They do take some time to get going though.You have to move a lot of metal.I doubt I'd play anything over a 24.It's just too much work.:)
