Medium weight 20" ride. Dark in timbre and closer to being a 'ride' than a 'crash'. Nice defined stick sound with a few different characters coming out with the differently lathed playing surfaces. The big raw bell really comes out nicely when struck.

Amedia says: Like the feeling you get surveying all of Istanbul from the top of the Galata tower, versatility is at your command when you play the Galata series. A partially lathed top offers you distinctly different playing surfaces and timbres. The unlathed strip at mid-bow feels stiff and sounds dry while the lathed edge and inner-bow have a softer feel and washier sound. The hammered, unlathed bell is loud and strong, with complex overtones.
