agreed. I think you put this in the wrong section, and I believe there is already a thread for this aswell. But don't worry about it, we all make mistakes :D

Endorsements are hard to come by. Anyone???? :p

Even though this is in the wrong section here is some input of mine.

I consider the B8's to be the all time worst cymbals ive ever heard in my life (not including the hi hats). Do yourself, and your audience a favor and get different cymbals.

...B8 and B8 pro are not as horrible as others might claim.

They have a distinct sound, and can fit in quite nicely with many different styles of music. I just bought an 18" B8 crash/ride, and 14" hats, and I am very pleased with them.

...if you can't keep it civil, at least make it funny.

I agree with Baz. They're not the bottom of the line. There are much much worse cymbals out there. They're not amazing cymbals, but if you use them right, they can sound like cymbals should sound. They don't sound too brassy or tinny. I have a 6" B8 splash that I really dig, it's a very unique cymbal. If it's what you can afford, then you can't do a lot better.

You should also look into Saluda Cymbals though, because they use the B20 alloy instead of B8, and are higher end, and can be customized too. They're very reasonably priced, and have good customer service. Some might say it's better to deal with them, since it's a small company, you can really get one-on-one advice and stuff.

Anyway, good luck with whatever you choose. And take your time to choose wisely! I have 6 cymbals in my cymbal bag that I just replaced that I bought without enough listening/thinking, and I just never liked them.
