These cymbals are designed to be musically dynamic and responsive - furthering connection and expression between the player and the instrument. Initially conceived as Jazz cymbals, they are equally at live or in the studio for nearly any style.
"The two ride cymbals deliver exactly what many drummers are looking for. The 22" ride in particular offers the perfect symbiosis of stick definition, wash and character. For me personally it's one of the best rides I've tried in recent years. In any dynamic way of playing, the cymbal always remains defined and sounds very organic. The 20" ride also has a fine bright and always defined stick sound. The sounds of the bells integrate harmoniously into the overall sound of the cymbals and can play to their strengths with constant, but not too concise pitches. Due to the comparatively low weight, both cymbals, but especially the 20" ride, can also be crashed very well, which additionally supports the dynamic flexibility. In addition, there is a slightly trashy note in their crashes, which gives the rides additional character. At the same time, the definition of the stick sound is never lost. From a stylistic point of view, the idea to combine traditional and contemporary has been a success. Both in jazz combos and in low acoustic vocal conditions, these ride cymbals will be able to enrich the music with their characteristic sounds. With their clear articulation, they should also be a good choice in recording." - Alex Hoffken
"This ride is great if you are looking for a musical and dynamic ride cymbal. Moderate stick definition but with beautiful overtones. The tonality is well balanced too. Not too dark so it cuts through the mix but not too bright either to sound harsh." - Susuch
"The 20" Traditional Jazz Ride has a musical and omnipresent stick sound with a dark and dynamic wash and just the right amount of trash. This ride is incredibly versatile!" - Team
