I've never tryed one out so I can't say much about it. Sounds pretty cool on the Zildjian website, though.

In my opinion the trashformer is a kind of cymbal you have to try out before buying because you can either hate it or love it

Hi,

I had played it before and I think it has its place. But like loop said, I think you should play it first and also try 2 or 3. I tried several and no one sounds the same.

But I think is a very cool addition; it's like a china between a crash.

hope it helps.

If your'e looking for a trashy crash, there are other cymbals from other manufacturers which have this sound:
Istanbul Agops Turk crashes- a crash with trashy responses,
Agops Trash hits
Sabians O-zone crashes- They sound quite trashy(at least for me)
Sabians Jojo Mayer Signature Fierce Crash- a beautiful crash that sounds more trashy than his china ;)
Bosphorus Stanton Moore Trash-Crash

I also believe(correct me if I'm wrong) that Steve Smith is using a trashformer with his fusion gig, so check out his CD's and DVD for that sound.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)

Oriential Crash of Droom has a great dark, trashy sound to it. I have a 20 inch and I can say it works great for me playing live :-D

i have a cracked 16" Platinum Rock Crash (zildjian), on top of UFIP cracked 13" heavy hi-hat bottom, and they're both sittin' on a cracked 18" K medium thin crash. Now THAT is trashy. Cracked cymbals rule!

If I recall correctly, last time, when I hit one, I didn't like the sound much. Also, it is quite nice with all the colours! ^_^
I proudly play with Tama (snare drums), PDP, Sabian, LP, Paiste, Vic Firth, Aquarian (bass and snare heads), and Remo (tom heads)brands! My biggest drummer influences are Mic Fleetwood, Nicko McBrain, and Mike Portnoy.

Well that is a cool cymbal.. I like the combo of the trashformer 16" bottom and 14" hi-hat top together... sounds cool. I heard Mike Mangini play this at a drum clinic. Or if your looking for trashy sound buy any sabian.
