Artisan is all about traditional dark, rich tone – they virtually sizzle with it.
Relies on high-density hand hammering to deliver deep, dark, rich tone for the most discerning drummers.
"This ride is a great one for dark, complex tones that are smooth and cutting. The wash is there in my ride, just enough being the cymbal is partially dry but it really comes to the forefront in a smooth, dark froth when you lay in to the cymbal though (and the ride maintains definition too). The bell sound is different and the small bell difficult to hit although it is very cutting. Took getting used to but now I wouldn't have it any other way. I particularly love the way the ride sounds within a jazz or blues context but excluding extremely heavy music this ride fits in anywhere." - Trey Breezy
