Details: First, these cymbals are lathed & hand-hammered on both surfaces. Second, they are "acid-washed" from the bell to the flange, leaving a 2 "circle around the edge. Third, and last but not least, after the lathing, both surface sections are then hand-polished to a mirror-like shine. These are indeed very labor-intensive cymbals, honoring the players & the listeners with a fantastically dark sound.... -Turkish Cymbals -Hand Cast, Hand Hammered, Hand Lathed.
