Special Edition is designed to capture the qualities of two jazz cymbals, Mel Lewis and Signature. These are some of the most tonally rich and colorful cymbals possibly available.
Special Edition Jazz Ride
Produces musically rich tones.
Features low fundamental pitch.
Offers organic, and woody stick articulation.
Dark and complex overtones which end with smooth wash underneath and immediate decay.
Also gives pleasant crash sound.
"20" Ride is comparatively lively in the attack and forms a short decay. Crashed accents are fun here. Within a swing pattern, as they provide a fine presence through briefly flashing overtones, whereby the whole thing remains easily controllable. " - Ralf Mikolajczak
"It responds wonderfully sensitively to the heavy stick and has a soft, dark sound character. Even different stick thicknesses and head shapes change the sound directly. Crashing in the edge area also creates delicate, subtle accents. The bell is rather small and flat. It does not set itself apart particularly strongly from the cymbal and is only somewhat louder. The cymbal is certainly too quiet in the rock and pop area, but a real treat in the jazz or pure acoustic environment." - Freddy K,
