Cheers mate! It’s a thing of beauty for sure...hmmm, maybe I should frame it and only handle with white cotton gloves; nah, scratch that, I’m gonna smash the life out of it!!! ? (y):D

Kidding aside, it will look even better once it's been blemished a bit. Etched with Copeland's spirit, it's designed to take a proper beating. I hope it's everything you hoped for. Congrats again on fulfilling the dream.

The search is over, my dream ride is here...born to live, live to ride!??View attachment 100744


Very nice looking cymbal my friend. Nice. :cool:

I recently picked up a new Ludwig Speed King bass drum pedal. Sweetwater gave me $20 off. And, I bought a Slingerland Tempo King, very used from the 70s. Got the Slingy for less than 2 20s. Had it shipped to Vitalizer Drums to be cleaned and restored. Maybe even modified to a direct drive if Vincent can do that.

This cymbal has to be heard in person to truly appreciate it...I’m not surprised Stewart took it round the world with him! Absolutely over the moon...or walking on it!:)(y)

I've only heard it in a few online recordings. The stick definition is phenomenal, very clean without being harsh. It's Copeland's sound for sure.

I think I heard somewhere that Stewart Copeland actually donates his hair as DNA into each batch of cymbal sheets.
That's right, Stewart collects and sends his cut hair to the company that makes Paiste's B8 sheets for inclusion in the sheets that are for Blue Bell Ride Cymbal ONLY! How about that! They put it in when the metal is molten!
So you got Copeland's DNA in that thing.
I bet you didn't know that

I just pulled the trigger on my first cymbal purchase in a very very long time, a set of Amedia Ahmet Legend crashes - 17", 18", & 19".

My current cymbal collection covers a lot of ground, so absolutely not a necessary purchase, but they'll provide a specific voice I've been eyeing for some time. I'll put something up once I receive them.

I think so :) I've tried Ahmet Legends before, & really liked them. Of course, pretty much my entire cymbal collection is made up of various Amedia series.
same! alex is a gem! :)

Alex & I go back a long way. We met when we both had an artist deal with the previous management of Amedia UK. Alex ended up taking over the company, & I've remained associated ever since. I've never had to look beyond Amedia for any sonic requirements. I use the same setup 90% of the time, but I have another 3 complete sets plus a fair few "specials".
