Here we have one of the more adventurous crash cymbals from Anatolian. It's like a person with an extra deep - and perhaps a bit raspy - voice. A voice that raises eyebrows when heard, almost appearing somewhat intimidating.
This cymbal stands out visually as well. Not just the bell, but about half of the surface is polished to a high shine. On the other hand, the outer 10-15 cm of the cymbal features a relatively fine grooved pattern, providing a visual contrast.
And the sound? Dark, yet clear and quite controlled. It offers a chance to achieve a nearly crystal-clear, deep-toned crash/ride!
This cymbal doesn't go completely wild but exhibits a rather controlled and authoritative manner.
The sustain is persistent and distinctive - precisely what you'll get: a cymbal with an immense personality!
Take a look for yourself.
