The review says, "The rest of the band will hate you!" Ironically, they initially voted on this piece over the more controlled, darker HHX 18" Chinese, but now they tease me relentlessly when we practice in a 250 sqft room. This is great on stage, though! It defiantly tears through anything else, so it's perfect for heavy quarters! The AAX 14" mini Chinese also compliments it very well!
