Sometimes you come across cymbals that can do something new. Or at least do things differently.
When you play this 22 "Dark Master Ride from Vulcan Cymbals, you discover how the people behind Vulcan have managed to make a thin cymbal that still has a good stick articulation.
This cymbal crashes very well - if need be. No problem. You can still hear your drumstick when you play.
Give it a listen. Maybe this ride cymbal is exactly what you have been looking for?
