Looks like a Crash - sounds like a Crash - if you want!

The size of 16" corresponds to that of an acoustic Crash cymbal. As a skilled acoustic drummer, the "real" diameter is ergonomically perfect for your playing technique.

But there is a lot more!

Depending on the sound module, it is also easily possible to assign any other imaginable sample sound to this 16" cymbal. This means that it can also be used as a ride cymbal, among other sounds. This is because each artist cymbal has all the features of the complete series.

And there are plenty of them!

The artist cymbals can be played and choked on the entire surface in 360°. You can literally play them the way you want. They are very sensitive to your hits and strokes and their velocity is breathtakingly real.

It feels – ALMOST - like metal!

The haptic feel of the strokes and rebounds is very close to an acoustic cymbal. The cup and the bow react tangibly directly when played with the tip of the stick, while the stroke of the cymbal rim with the shaft of the stick makes the cymbal plunge away almost as smooth as butter.

This is due to the redesigned pivot point and the robust silicone-rubber surface, which provides pure authenticity, especially at the edge.

The pivot point allows the cymbal to be mounted on any conventional cymbal holder, just like an acoustic cymbal. You don't need any rotation stoppers as with other e-cymbals. The result is a completely free swinging behavior in all directions.

Good but honestly I was expecting more

I bought the ATV 16'' to substitute my old Roland CY 15' R ride. Reviews on ATV 16" were excellent but I can't say to be fully satisfied. To have the ATV sound like the Roland I had to increase sensitivity from 8 (Roland CY 15R) to 20 but still I could not have the response I wanted on the edge area. Bell triggering is fine (better than Roland may be?!) but as a whole performance I was expecting more. I went back to my Roland ride and will use this ecymbal as a crash instead

Ein supergeiles Spielgefühl. Viel wertiger als z.B. Roland CY Serie. Triggert zu 100% akkurat! Kaufen!

Perfect 3-zone triggering, slick look

I was on the lookout for a new ride cymbal but I wanted to avoid the Roland 15R due to its notoriously inconsistent bell (when not modded). This cymbal is just perfect for me as I didn't want to go all the way to 18 inches. I now finally have a ride that has consistent bell triggering without having to hit the bell like it owes me money. Works fine with my TD-12 module.
Choking also seems a bit more natural than my Roland cymbals.

I've seen people noticing "microdents" after using these cymbals when they first came out. For the record there are absolutely none on mine, after using it for a couple of months. I can't feel any dents even when slowly running my fingers over its surface. Also, even though it doesn't have a stopper it swings perfectly fine without spinning around. These are very thin and light and looks pretty slick. Well done ATV.
