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.
"Because I love so much music from New Orleans, I knew I had to try this ride out. I saw the hand hammering and dark alloy and was very excited. This cymbal produces a great vintage sound that is in the New Orleans tradition, versatile and well balanced. I could see this ride in some jazz, fusion, but especially funk contexts. The most surprising thing about this cymbal was its openness. Often times, in order to get a desirable dark sound cymbal must sound condensed. This has a wide spectrum of mids, lows, and highs all complimenting each other. The cymbal is the perfect weight to accommodate this. It has a vintage sound, though I am sure it is not a completely accurate representation of the old New Orleans cymbals. It was actually pretty trashy, and loud as well. For these reasons, I could really feel this thing being used in a small funk band. The bell was amazing, just the right size to produce a clear cutting accent." - Sanjuro
"The 20" ride sounded the most like an old, dry K. You could crack the shaft of a stick into it and crash it without giving the next two measures away to the roar." - Robin Tolleson
