Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres.
Masters Dark Crisp Ride
Dark, crisp, warm, rich, open.
Wide range, fairly complex mix.
Very responsive feel, quick attack.
A nice and crispy stick sound supported by a strong, open and dark shimmering wash.
Well suited for all styles of music that require great dynamics and full-bodied ride sound.
"The Dark Crisp rides have hammer markings similar to those on the Dark rides, but they are considerably heavier in weight. As a result, they had a pronounced stick sound and a clear bell tone, but with a fairly dark, complex, and controlled wash. These were the moodi¬ est cymbals of the series, and they seemed most appropriate for darker and more aggressive playing styles, a la Josh Freese with the art rockers A Perfect Circle. The Dark Crisp rides could also be a great choice for drummers who want a complex sound with a strong stick attack." - Michael Dawson
