Whether the Vulcan Papa Series is named after the jazz drummer Papa Jo Jones will remain a mystery. However, Vulcan Cymbals writes the following regarding this series:
“This series is inspired by and dedicated to the great drummers from Jazz and New Orleans styles. Great for funk and fusion, the lathing work is perfected so that these cymbals give an incredible stick control. The ultimate weights for cutting through amplified music these cymbals are still dark and highly defined for all kinds of use. For discerning players.”
Regardless of the background, this 20" Papa Ride is a really great acquaintance.
The cymbal’s fundamental tone is slightly dusty and it belongs mainly among the darker tones.
This cymbal has a medium stick attack level with a great volume and the ability to crash as soon as you hit the surface.
The bell of the cymbal is relatively flat and has a crispy tone.
Here you get a very dynamic cymbal with lots of fine tone options.
