Medium-heavy weight 22" ride. The large bell lends the cymbal great projection. More a traditional 'ride' than a big crash. Great stick definition! A little more complex than many of the brighter, heavier rides on the market, this one is pleasing on the ear.

Amedia says: The D-Series finds its place in Rock, Pop and Funk and rightfully so. These cymbals are big on volume, projection and cut but warmth and musicality. Also a hybrid, the D-Series sports a big bell that is hammered and continues to the center of the bow. From the center to the edge we add a fine lathing in addition to the hammering. Both sections are finished to a high brilliance. The underside is fully lathed and hammered and finished to the same lustre. The rides are warm and clean with a prominent stick and medium wash. The Crashes are loud with a fast open and quick decay. The Hi-hats are warm with good potential volume and a bright chick.
