Second one is out, IMHO. Too bright, too metallic, dead-sounding...not enough spread, not enough overtones. It has the best stick sound, but nothing else, really.

The first is in between the second and third. As a general purpose cymbal for a variety of musical genres, it's probably the best choice. It sounds nice. It's well-balanced.

The third one is the darkest of the three. Washy, a lot of spread to the low overtones. Sounds like a great Jazz ride but if you were using it with an amplified band it'd get lost...and the stick presence is the least of the three. I like it, it's dark and smoky, but it wouldn't stand up well to a loud band.

BTW....I think the only reason more folks haven't replied is because as you have it set up now...one has to actually downlaod the mp3 to their computer...as opposed to, say, just listening to it via their web browser.

I am curious to know what brands they are.
