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.
New Orleans Ride
Is fundamentally low in pitch, dry yet open and provide excellent stick articulation.
"The New Orleans 21" ride delivered a sound that was warm and dry. The bell had an excellent quality that cut through cleanly. The cymbal did build up a bit of a roar when it was ridden for extended periods and the edges got to wobbling, but it still spoke well." - Robin Tolleson
"21" Bosphorus New Orleans was just what I was looking for... nice dry pangy sound with a little decay. And I dig how it crashes too." - Nubs
