Details: The Ride is very dry, with greater definition. The heavy unlathed surfaces produced intense stick response and clear accents... Raw Dark series is similar to Turkish Kurak line. Those cymbals are totally unlathed, with prominent hammer markings on top and underneath. They are slightly heavier with larger bells, and they've given the black treatment....-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.

Your sound is unique with Turkish Cymbals. Probably the finest cymbals on the planet.
