Traditional's intricate style of over hammering imparts a unique temper and relaxation for a warm, vowel-like attack, with a relatively deep pitch and rich, complex wash of controlled overtones. They are diverse enough to be used in delicate acoustic situations and aggressive enough to be played in arena rock concerts.
Offers brawnier attack and more articulated bell sound without compromising the full-bodied pitch and delicate harmonic characteristics.
"The beautiful 20-inch Traditional Medium ride offers a brawnier attack and more articulated bell sound without compromising the full-bodied pitch and delicate harmonic characteristics so prized by acoustic jazz drummers." - Chip Stern
"I play three or four weekends a month with a funk/r&b/soul band that has a tendency to get a pretty loud stage volume, so I need cymbals that can handle this. Recently I've been using some Traditional Medium rides, I have used a 20" and a 21" and have been very happy with them both in that setting. I also play jazz gigs regularly and I've taken those same Mediums out on those hits and been very pleased. They remind me (especially the 20) of an Elvin Jones sound. I don't know that I would play them if I was playing with a very loud rock band, but then there are other tools for that task, like the Bosphorus Gold series. Outside of that setting though I think they hit the mark and are very versatile." - Jashou P.
