"These cymbals are very dark and dry. They look like they would be, due to the prevalent hand hammering and molding techniques. They are also very warm, extremely rewarding to listen to. Even out of musical context, by themselves, the are some of the most pleasantly musical cymbals I have ever heard. They have a unique appearance, and partly due to their relative rarity I accumulate many compliments.They look old and vintage after a few years of playing and capture a bit of the "old Zildjian" sound that is so sought after these days." - Sanjuro
