Now for those of you keeping score at home you already know that Matt Bettis has WON!!

If you enjoy the ART of cymbal crafting then it just don't get better than THIS!! I know because I witnessed it! And it was a beautiful sight to behold.

And you can PLAY THE DAMN THING TOO!!

Matt Bettis completely HAND CRAFTS EACH CYMBAL!!

There are no humanoid conveyor belts in the Bettis workshop. No mini-Matt Bettis' running around in hair nets forging his name while Matt smokes cigars in Aruba.

It's all him! Imagine that! What a breath of fresh air in a world of mass produced cymbal discs and steroidal marketing.

SURE you can spend $450 on a new machine made Zildjian K Constantinople!!

But why the hell would you????

And this specific Bettis 20" is the paragon of DRY WITHA PINCH OF COMPLEXITY. Just the tiniest bit underneath that prominent attack! 

So it's with great pleasure that I offer up this Unique Matt Bettis Custom 20" Ride in AMAZING CONDITION!!! NEW in fact! Check out the pictures.  There are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dings, or dents on this gorgeous 20"! It's in AMAZING SHAPE!!  EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN!!!  BRAND NEW!!!

And at 2157 grams this 20" is a little heartier than some of Matt's thinner offerings, and the result is a DRY but still ever so slightly COMPLEX 20"!!!

As you can see the top has a raw 3.5" tone band near the outer edge that contributes control to the dry tone as well as a .5" raw strip just above it.  The rest of the cymbal is fully lathed giving the attack a wonderful complexity.

 Imagine a completely hand made K Custom High Definition Ride but in a 20"!! 

THAT'S THIS CYMBAL!! 

Weighing in at a lovely 2157 grams this Multi-Surface Bettis Custom 20" Ride plays like a sinister DRY Medium Thin Ride. GORGEOUS!!!!  This particular Bettis Custom is drier than Matt's typical cymbal, thanks to the raw tone band and slightly heavier weight.  While it is dry, it still maintains a hint of hand made complexity! 

A very dark and unique sounding specimen.

And HELL YES IT'S CRASHABLE!! At 2157 grams it's definitely crashable and the decay is VERY quick. It's perfect for crash accents while riding. 

Overall this is a pretty DAMN DRY 20" cymbal! 

Obviously this 2157 gram Bettis Custom 20" Ride is a joy to play for jazz, ballads, blues and anything with SOUL! It records beautifully and makes an amazing alternate left side crash ride for pop and rock gigs!

Bettis keeps the art alive. And you can feel it as soon as your stick hits this beauty.

$450 for the garden variety non-hand hammered 20"??????

$380 for a big box store, humdrum K Custom Dry Ride????

Why not play something UNIQUE?? For LESS???

So do yourself a favor and grab this completely handmade 2157 gram DRY  with a pinch of complexity, Bettis Custom 20" Ride.

And hang onto it!! A beauty like this will age gracefully!

It's PERFECT!!!
