If they'd cut the weight down on the 22" COD, I think it would be nearly perfect with the bigger bell

The mega doom, according to reviews, is a ride. Basically way too heavy for a crash. The normal 22, I think should be much lighter, but what do I know lol
Sounded good in the video lol I think the orchestral ride and 15” fat hats were my favorite

Honestly to me, it's almost like a 24" sweet ride if they made one. The crash is wonderful. A deeper, fuller note than my 24" K Light. Opens up very easily
That’s crazy I thought it looked like a sweet ride to me but just different. I may have to get one

I found the perfect Crash of Doom and picked it up based off looks alone. The last few I've had haven't been warped hardly at all. A small wave here and there. They've also been very thick. Basically a dark , big crash.

This one is EXACTLY what a COD should be, and what I was wanting out of the Raw Crashes and the Masterwork Blank. This one is warped, nasty, VERY thin, and almost China like. I've never heard a doom like it. Seems I hit the jackpot with this one!

Has anyone seen or owned one of these? Very cool cymbal a lot is crash of doom looks to it and has that kinda sound.

I own a 20” Crash Of Doom and I like it but as another poster said it’s better for trash riding than crashing. But, I suppose it depends on the style music you’re playing. I’m in a cover band currently doing a lot of 70s R and B and classic rock so it’s hard to shoehorn it in sometimes as a crash. I also have a 20” Zildjian Oriental that the COD sounds great against. It sounds like nothing else in my cymbal arsenal.

My 20 isn’t that wavy either. I wish it was more like yours shown.

Here you go. Sorry it's another cell phone video

Thanks! That's a great sounding COD. I play with fewer cymbals, so tend to go for more all-arounders, but that I really do like how those sound. The closest I come are FX or Cluster crashes, both of which I also love. I was also really tempted by the Mega Doom, but again, a little to niche to crack the rotation.

The 22” COD that I had was a super clean ride for me. I never crashed it. Then I got a 20” and it just didn’t do anything for me.
