This is perhaps the most sold crash cymbal from Anatolian: The 16" Baris Crash model.
The cymbal shines with its clear, focused and brilliant sound. Fantastic for rock, pop, metal, hip hop, gospel, and more.
The cymbal has a great attack and a short sustain. It is a cymbal that can penetrate loud music and that gives you a wide dynamic range to work with.
The cymbal is brilliant on both sides.
The Baris series was actually a groundbreaking new cymbal series, when first introduced around 1999. This series is nowhere near traditional Turkish cymbals, if you look at the appearence or the sound.
The hammering involved is both less and different. The stiffness of the cymbal itself is more pronounced. The result is a clean sounding, very responsive and dynamic cymbal, suitable for more modern music genres.
Baris cymbals has therefore become enormously popular among rock, metal and gospel drummers. Clean, transparent - dynamic.
And then there is the price - as these cymbals are very affordable too!
