New Orleans is based on raw hammered cymbal then wide-lathed in a continuous spiral from bell to outer edge to produce woody stick and trashy undertones with more spread than Turk but less wash than Traditional. They feel as good behind a jazz kit as it does on a contemporary setup.

Is fast and warm with equal balances of high and low frequencies.
Features quick decay and moderate sustain.
"The 18" crash gives a nice, controlled sound that is dark and fades fairly quickly. It rides well, also." - Taiko
"A medium thin cymbal that's full of life, with a bright, quick attack. The decay has a broad wash of undertones that add to the complexity of this hand-hammered gem." - Rob M.
