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 22" ride also provides great stick definition and crashes nicely. Because all of these cymbals are only partially lathed they have a dry sound with limited wash. The bell has a nice, musical tone and blend well--they sound dark and clear." - Taiko
"The 22 New Orleans ride combined many of the attributes of a fine ride. It had a brightness that cut through, but also an articulate decay, with a hint of dryness that could be useful in suppressing overtones." - Robin Tolleson
