Raw Tone and Looks

You don't normally come across deliberately non-lathed cymbals like this one, but if you're after a dry sound with a distinct short accent, this is a cymbal to check out. The low pitch and volume of this Byzance Vintage Pure Medium Ride lends itself particularly well to making short, pronounced accents with almost no sustain.
