So I found a great deal on a 20" Stagg Genghis Jazz ride for my son and figured, what the heck let's try it out. It arrived today and I have to say first impressions. I'm impressed. He has a 20" Zildjian A Medium ride but wanted something a little darker, more jazz feel. This is a really nice looking cymbal, and the sound is what he was looking for. Dark, complex, nice stick definition, and an awesome wash/crash when you hit stick shoulder to cymbal edge. I had no experience with Stagg before this, always thought they were entry level garbage, but after reading some recent reviews and articles it looks like they are trying to move up into the Dream territory of serious contenders. For what I paid, I am blown away with this cymbal.
