- Looking for a fantastic truly DARK RIDE 20” with a killer bell? Here it is:
- Istanbul Prototype RAW BELL TRADITIONAL 20” in fantastic condition. Factory christened on the underside “RB TR 20”.
- Have a listen - this is a wonderfully versatile Hand Hammered beauty!
- Take a look at this 20”! Fully lathed on top and bottom but with an unlathed, earthen, very dark and cutting Raw Bell.
- Super low profile gives this 20” a low pitch with very dark overtones.
- Add a healthy 2588 gram weight on this 20” and the result is a semi-dry, focused DARK Ride that cuts exceptionally well WITHOUT clanking.
- Being Hand Hammered there’s a gorgeous organic complexity in there, however with the heavier weight the stick definition is quite prominent - you hear every strike.
- Semi-dry, dark, old-world hand-hammered light complexity, roars with a rich fullness when you lay into it - amazing bell.
- In the ballpark of the K Dark Medium Ride but actually Hand Hammered and with a much stronger bell.
- Obviously it’s amazing at louder settings but listen to how great it plays quieter.
- Light patina. Amazing shape. Golden glow.
- An incredibly versatile 20” with dark leanings and a broad dynamic range!
