Buy a true top shelf ride cymbal here. The fantastic Holy Grail cymbals from American Cymbal & Gong, have created great hype - and not without reason.
Here we have an absolutely fantastic 20" ride, with a reference to the early turkish traditions, where sound and response are highly prioritized.
You get the most wonderful stick attack and a - in many ways - very "medium" experience when you play this cymbal - understood in the way that the cymbal reacts and feels very "medium" to play. Its not either soft or stiff. Its not wet nor dry either. We are simply dealing with a cymbal that has got it all.
The Holy Grail series is available in two versions: Turkish Style (slightly flatter profile) and American Style (slightly higher profile). Here we have a Turkish Style cymbal.
Visually, the cymbal is calm - no big logos, just a nice patinated surface that implies quite precisely what you will be greeted with in terms of sound, the first time you give the cymbal a tap.
If you want a ride cymbal from the top shelf, with a warm and very well focused sound - well, check this out!
