30th Anniversary is true works of art with different variations in massive hammer marks, lathing and color all enhance the sound. It also stand out with hand-shaped rugged-looking bell as its profiles curve gently down. These cymbals are uncannily similar to the vintage Turkish Ks that inspired them. Like their aged counterparts, they are instruments full of character and subtlety.
30th Anniversary Ride
Is astonishingly complex and involving, while also not being especially loud.
Is far from subdued - being suffused with spiky, almost seething tonality.
Features woody, silvery stick response and wash that is hissing, churning, oceanic backdrop rolling along restlessly beneath the pulse.

"This thing is the best ride I ever played on. The cymbal is extremely well balanced. This allows the cymbal to project as much as possible at the same time there is a bounce on the cymbal that does not induce fatigue that other cymbals do. I can play the cymbal for hours using the minimum force and it sounds just great. When you crash the cymbal it does not wobble and use up energy trying to stabilize while decaying its sound trying to project." - Evolving Machine
"Nice musical ride and very expressive. It is not a bright pingy ride, has far more darker tones. Surprisingly good for indie rock tones and articulates all sorts of sticks (tried nylon tipped, wood tips, as well as everything from 2A to 7B) and sticking really well. Obviously, an excellent cymbal for jazz to fusion situations." - Apurv P.
