I've used them a lot over ~ the last 15 years; a 22" jazz Turk, 13" Turk hihats, an Antique, and a few different Masters. The only ones I still have are the hihats, which record really nice. A few of them were weird, most of them were lovely. My thing with them is that I felt like they didn't project, and didn't balance well with the drums. The sound of the drums beat them up a little bit. The soft/glassy thing that makes them great to record with wasn't working for me in normal playing.
