Over the course of the last decade, Xilxo went through a transformation to finesse in Turkish cymbal sounds never found elsewhere. West Coast in context with this uniqueness features heavy hand hammering. Their smaller bell with amplified lathed underside and the two lathed stripes on the upper edge provide a balanced dry and focused stick sound with shimmering decay resulting good crashing abilities and excellent ride patterns.
"But this cymbal beaks barriers. It may have the most perfect fundamental tone for a ride cymbal I've ever heard - sometimes a cymbal has a great tone but that tone is made up of many sub-tones. Sometimes one of the sub-tones is just a bit more outspoken than the others. This one is in tune and harmony with itself at every audible point. It seems to leave space for other cymbals to have their full voice heard too." - Tom Bastedo
