I've listened to these several times recently. I want to like them....but I don't. Too thin sounding to me without any "body". Might be fine for an acoustic piano trio in a restaurant...but I'm sure about anything louder? I could be wrong.
EDIT: Sorry all that I wrote above pertains to the 20th Anniversary models NOT the 1600 Series. I think I prefer the 1600 series as being a bit more substantial and louder. That said; neither one blows me away and I'm not in any hurry to pick up either the 1600 or the 20th Anniversary. At least not until I play them myself. Sorry for the confusion.
I have three of ‘em and I love the hell out of them. They are a little high-pitched but the tone is so clean, smooth and silky. Focused but not dry. With a lovely dark and deep wash. Extemely controllable.
To me, they’re kind of a mix between old Ks and As. They’re some of my favorite cymbals at the moment. Tony from cymbalsonly.con can get you any 1600 in any weight you want.
