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.
"26" Ride has probably the darkest attack with a short mini shimmer of overtones I've ever heard. When playing lightly, a deep rumbling and rapidly modulating sustain characterizes the sound. But if you just hit it a little harder - and the limit is clearly shown in terms of sound - an extremely crashy to slightly gongy sound with an oriental note develops. The peak sound can only be described as very muted and bone dry. There is nothing to be gained here for a concise drive, but such a cymbal has its own, albeit special, tonal charm." - Ralf Mikolajczak
