We at Memphis Drum Shop have secretly had our hands on these cymbals days before they launched. We are impressed! The sheer look of Mike's Transition Ride is one uniquely different from any other Extra Dry ride cymbal we've ever seen. It's look comes from a "half-polished" technique specifically used on the Transition ride. Mike Johnston calls this ride the Transition ride because it has an easy time transitioning from an all out open crash sound to a great, stick-definition rich ride in literally seconds. This would be a great addition to any player's setup with its present, but not overpowering, raw bell. The bottom of this cymbal is brilliant.
