The 18" c6000 cymbal sounds great for what it is. I have it in a set with camber 300 or camber 2 14" hihat pairs, an old meinl-ambico-camber 15" crash and a sweet 20" camber 2 thin ride. Not the best cymbals, but they all do sound great and they get the job done for pennies on the dollar. The 18" c6000 has good crash and ride qualities. Great job on the repair!!
