I recently needed to purchase an effects cymbal, I have grown tired of the typical china sound, so I was searching for something cleaner. I have owned a Sabian 18"evolution ozone and a 19" Paragon china so I was looking in that direction but didn't want to spend that much again for an effects cymbal. My trust fund (my wife "trusts" I wont spend a lot of money on drum equipment) is extremely low right now. After hearing samples of the B8 Pro 18" Ozone I reluctantly pulled the trigger.. and after bashing this thing for a week or two I feel I got an amazing deal.. It is exactly what I was looking for sonically and for the price ($100) for floor model.. I believe in 30 years it will be up there with Paiste 404's and 505's as one of those "Great cymbal for a budget price" This got me wondering what else fits in this category..
