after a long time as a visitor and some weeks as a member, this is my first thread.
I just watched the concert of Vijay Iyer Trio in the festival "Jazz en Tête" 2011 and I was amazed by the beautiful sound of this ride cymbal. I think it is a Zildjian´s Sound Lab prototype. Very thin, bended, with rivets and some really big hammering.
- Is there a lot of them like this out there?
- Are Zildjians prototypes availables for the general public or are they specially made for the artists?
