The stick sound heard on top and ultra dark overall vibe and trashy quick explosive crash of this pie heard in the flesh will blow your mind. The ultimate true CRASH/ RIDE in my books doing both REALLY well though not marketed as such a cymbal by the company.

The other seen next is my Agop Signature 18" Flat Ride. This one has been heard on several of the tracks of the Delta Quartet {Jared Burrows and friends} I posted in a link to Jared's website in the recent studio recordings thread. Here the link to the music again for those who missed it to hear this 18" flat in action in context:

YouTube clip featuring it on the track "Dinner with John" from the summer recording session:

Very nice sounding 18" flat with a great clear stick click sound combined with some bacon sizzle in the dry dark wash.
Kinda reminds me of the old school Jimmy Cobb ride sound. I like it!
