This is a truly gorgeous ride cymbal, one that represents the late 50's with swagger & mystique. It exhibits exquisite hand hammering & lathing. It sounds great & can wear many hats at a great svelte weight of 2376g, but exceeds extremely well at jazz/bop. It's in great shape with no cracks & has an attractive, natural patina. The hole looks great from the top & almost perfect from the bottom. Great bell tone, tight & articulate stick, beautiful crash.
