With this 20" Vintage Ride from CymbalWorks' Collectables series, we are dealing with a light, playable and very nice ride cymbal … and something with a bit of life in it! 😀
The cymbal has a nice and full attack as soon as your stick tip hits it.
There is some difference in sound here, depending on where you hit the surface. This leaves you with several choices as you play, just by "moving around" the surface.
The fundamental sound is crisp and well saturated - with a "mist" of trashiness going on.
If you give the cymbal a "whip" with the shoulder of your drumstick, you will be greeted with a big and roaring crash.
A very useful cymbal for drummers who work with timbres and nuances and who like to explore sounds in general.
