"The Custom Shop 21" Artisan ride made for myCymbal.com takes the extensive Artisan hand hammering process and incorporates a unique lathing pattern. This gives enhanced control but also allows it to breathe and open up with a warm, dark undertone. The lathed bell on top removes any harsh high frequencies and delivers a solid woody bell tone that blends perfectly. The result is a Custom Shop cymbal that has perfect balance." -Mark Love, Master Product Specialist, Sabian Ltd.
