A unique and creative lathing process gives the outer edge its warped and malleable quality. Smaller sizes sound like a cross between a splash and a china, larger sizes sound more like a cross between crash and a china or a swish. Fast, trashy attack, with a fairly quick decay. Each Turkish cymbal is a work of art hand-crafted individually by the cymbalsmith. Variations in color, hammer marks, lathing, labels, etc., are all enhancements that add to the natural beauty, sound, and unique quality of these one-of-a-kind cymbals.
