Maybe there is an limiter/compressor activated. I'd look into the settings menu. Without one, I'd say you might get distortion, but not that slow swelling sound after the attack.

I don't have time. But here's my thoughts anyway..

#3) Don't know but I might play it.
#5) No, but that's a Sabian or a Paiste
#6) I like and would play on my own gig
#8 No but guessing it's a Sabian
#9) No, but it's a China, maybe Paiste
#10) Yes, I'd play this
#11) Yes, I'd play this, sounds like a 20

everything else is a no go for me.. So I'd play 6, 10 , and 11, maybe #3.

there's only two in my book.... handmade and machine made..
that's how I hear and feel...them In-person --for my self...

De-complicates my cymbalholic life.
and I feel it's really, the only difference..
The only real main difference that actually physically tangibly matters...
that can be felt. Vibrationally.

And I like handmade.
old Ks and Bosph (i can mix or play alone and be happy (the song..


Once you get into machine-made or machine-made that replicate- hand made ( as in New AK's...)
that's an (to me) endless (complicated) unnecessary (unless you're playing with Cher) (and can afford everything) pit an almost -certain -endless- money- pit.
So I stay out of it.

I have 1 new machine-made AK.

My machine-made A's I've had kept and used since I was a kid frankly have done and served their time- kept only for a functional purpose - locust attack, nuclear Armageddon , storm, flood..
or in another words an
"Open-Stage" gig where I'm the host drummer and have to bring cymbals to an existing kit where potential other drummers will bash on. I have had one of those gigs for a solid year could happen again

Handmade vibrate humanely I've a humanity/kinship with
