Signature Dark Energy Ride Mark II

Very wide range, complex, musical mix.
Responsive feel, extremely controllable.
Woody, silvery, spanky ping over crunchy, thriving wash.
Extremely versatile, flexible ride for wide ranging application in modern blended music styles.
Mark II: Tends to be a bit livelier and brighter.
This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound.
Mark II also has a bit more volume potential due to its more open character.
"This ride does it all. The bell is musical and easily played. Stick sound is present, transparent and shimmering with a touch of dryness. The crash is dark and strong with a musical shimmer. Perfect ride for all occasions from acoustic jazz to fusion/rock." - Justin
"Great defined ping, darker near the edge, brighter near the bell, with a darker nice level of wash. The bell is killer - loud and cutting but not piercing. This ride is supremely controllable and playable at very low volumes. Did I mention that it delivers a beautiful full crash sound that decays quickly, especially for a 22"." - Tyler R.
