Re: Amedia Antique 20in Ride
I've played quite a few Amedia's, courtesy of Andy. Went to one of their exhibitions once too (nice, small affair) and the cymbals were lovely. A couple of years ago at the London Drum Show, there was a beautiful 21" ride and that was snapped up very quickly.Picked up this cymbal at the Chicago Drum Show this weekend. It's pretty heavy and sounds best in an acoustic room (vs carpetted). It's supposedly Turkish company. Paid $228 for it. I like the wire-wheel finish - looks like they took a drill with a wire-wheel bit, and went over the entire cymbal front and back (although carefully paying attention to direction so as to affect a spiral pattern toward the bell).
I like the way it looks AND sounds...
