Vulcan's Dark Master series not only looks different, it also sounds different. In a good way.
Take this 21" ride cymbal from the Dark Master Series as an example - it sounds really good!
The cymbal has a relatively deep tone, with a nice underlying "wash". The attack is delicious - medium and with the ability to always shine through. In fact, it is a pretty unique combination we have here.
The cymbal is suitable for both jazz, New Orleans, and funk as well as pop and rock. In fact, pretty much in any genre where cymbals with a unique character is asked for.
A really nice ride that you should hurry up to buy!
