"The best purchase I've made!!!"

I NEVER leave product reviews... I always read them before I make any purchase, but this time I feel that a review is my duty to my fellow drummers out there looking for THE cymbal. I have been playing drums for nearly 25 years. I've toured all over the US. I've had endorsements through several great companies throughout my career. I have done and still do a lot of studio work in world renowned studios. I currently play as a session drummer in the Houston area and also play for one of the largest churches in the country. I'm not at all trying to brag, I'm simply qualifying myself as a drummer who knows drums and knows what sounds good and what doesn't...
Here's the deal... This cymbal (Omni 22") is literally THE best cymbal I have ever played hands down. I have actually taken this cymbal to quite a few smaller gigs and used only this cymbal and hi hats and didn't miss my other cymbals at all. It is litteraly the perfect ride and the perfect crash. I've used it for pop/rock/country/gospel/... It always works and fits in perfectly. It is never overpowering and the sound guys and producers always say "where in the hell did you find that cymbal!!). I hit it and it makes me smile. The bell is cutting, but not too bright, the center has a dark, jazzy ride feel with amazing stick definition, the edge is trashy, yet beautiful. I could literally go on and on about this thing, Most crash/rides end up being horrible at both... This isn't your ordinary crash/ride. It's just an awesome freaking cymbal. Sabian and JoJo definitely struck gold with this one! I now own two of these and if they break, I will order another one immediately! Each cymbal differs a bit. One of my Omni's is a bit heavier, and is a bit brighter than the other. However, they are both brilliantly designed instruments! I'm not anyone to please go out and buy this cymbal, BUT I am saying this is has literally changed my playing for the better. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT 1000%!!! I wanted to leave 20 stars for the wow factor :)
