Amedia Galata 21" Jazz Ride
** Amedia 20% sale: was $299! Only until 20 Jan 2017 **
Medium weight 20" ride. Dark in timbre with fairly defined stick sound; a few different characters come out with the differently lathed playing surfaces. The big raw bell really comes out nicely when struck. Opens up if you really hit it, won't take your head off as it's fairly dark in tone. Great cymbal.

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.
