Traditional XT is developed with the collaboration of Rob Brian, features more pronounced bell and deeper curve from bell to edge. It is designed to give the response and feel of thinner cymbals but the clarity and cut of a heavier ones.
Traditional XT Ride
Gives full, rounded sound with bright stick response.
Ospen up quickly under heavy sticking into fulsome warm wash that is easily controlled.
"The smaller XT Edition rides give a full, rounded sound that's darker than the equivalent mainstream model but retains Bosphorus' signature complex tones. The tighter bow curve gives a bright stick response but it opens up quickly under heavy sticking into a fulsome warm wash that is easily controlled. The bell responds well to strikes with the shank of the stick, cutting through. The larger rides are darker and more like a straightforward jazz ride. They offer more complexity than the smaller rides and give more edge wobble, but they never gets away from you unless you want it to - in fact, provoking them is difficult and requires forceful sticking across the rim.
