- I can truly say I've lived a charmed life - I'VE WITNESSED MATT BETTIS IN THE DEPTH OF HIS CRAFT, and it was a beautiful thing to see, and he's a damn nice guy too.
- There are no little Matt Bettis minions in hair nets running around, machine-making cymbals on conveyor belts while Matt Bettis smokes cigars on his guilded yacht. Each Bettis cymbal is crafted by him and in a world of mass production, his one-cymbal-at-a-time approach is a welcomed fresh breeze.
- A legend in his own time and this unique Dark Complex 21” Ride a testament to his craft!
- Signed by the man himself under the bell!
- And this particular Matt Bettis cymbal is Hand Hammered all over the place! It’s amazing. Look at that bell!
- ULTRA HAND HAMMERED.
- Weighing in at a perfect 2408 grams this hand-crafted 21” plays like a Smoky DARK Thin Crash Ride Sizzle.
- Organic, smoky stick attack gives way to a VERY Dark Complex warm wash that lives in the low end magnificently.
- Imagine a Paiste Traditional Light Ride - but DARKER, more organic sounding - as if it was actually Hand Hammered 50 years ago.
- Well, here you go!
- 2408 grams makes this 21” unbelievably crashable! This could even BE a Crash Cymbal if it didn’t sound so great as a Ride.
- Plays like a THIN!
- Three cluster rivets give this exquisitely crafted 21” a smoky rain-on-the-roof Sizzle.
- Amazing shape. No issues. Golden hue light patina just forming.
- It buoys the spirit to play something not mass-produced.
- Every strike of this beauty reminds you that Matt is a master who has a love of the art and the craft.
