Details: Millennium crash-rides are finished with a bright, polished surface on top and bottom. The lathing on the bell is tight and concentric. On the bow, it expands to a width that is nearly double-spaced down the entire surface, all the way to the edge. These are thinner cymbals with lower weights. They utilize deeper lathing, and undergo a meticulous hand-hammering process that gives them a darker and richer, more traditional sound.
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.
