Classic Turkish cymbal making at its finest. Each ride and crash is available in three weights. A heavier ride cymbal yields a higher pitch and increased stick articulation, while the lighter weights offer a softer more “vowel”  type stick sound. Heavier crashes provide more volume with a higher pitch, but take longer for the sound to open up. Chinas, splashes and flats are not offered in multiple weights.
