  • Great cymbal!

    This is a fantastic cymbal for jazz work, but really it could work in many different contexts. I'm thrilled with it.

  • A good one

    What this cymbal is to me is like a drier version in the K con line. My model is in the lighter range and very expressive at all volumes. The 20 is particularly versatile for their intended purpose, as a stand alone ride or a crash ride. Nice dry ping and the crash is like a low roar. Spectacular instrument.
