Details: The name Atacama comes from a large desert plateau in South America west of the Andes Mountains. It is referred to as the driest desert on the planet, and this arid quality is reflected in this cymbal pair. The 14" crash is thin and completely hammered to the edge, except for the bell which is not hammered. The result is an extremely dry and dark crash with very little overtone resonance and a rapid decay. This characteristic allows for clear articulation with sticks without overbearing sustain or excessive volume. -The 20" Flat Ride is complimentary to the crash in that it is also extremely dry with no dominating overtones. All articulations can be precisely heard without imprudent sustain, a very advantageous feature when performing at low volume in an acoustical environment.... -Turkish Cymbals -Hand Cast, Hand Hammered, Hand Lathed. Peculiar hiss-tone that is high, sharp & piercing. Excellent for short, punctuated accents with an exotic atmosphere. For centuries, cymbals have been made in artisan workshops in Istanbul, Turkey, the acknowleged home of quality cymbal making. Cymbal alloys (most notably B20 alloys) have secret recipes passed through generations and each Turkish Cymbal is hand cast, rolled whilst hot, hammered by skilled artisans and tested to give the unique sound the Turkish Cymbals have, before being finished on a lathe. Only by hand making can the cymbal be worthy of a top-flight drummer. Each cymbal has its own individual overtones and "DNA", whilst being broadly similar to its brothers. Your sound is unique with Turkish Cymbals. Probably the finest cymbals on the planet.
