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!!

And Lord have Mercy! This one has that hand crafted GLOWING WARM TONE AND IT HAS A SLIGHTLY SMALLER BELL WITH GIVES IT FANTASTIC CONTROL!! 

The attack is really nice and tight for . fully lathed cymbal! 

AND IT'S ONLY 1955 grams!!! The edges have a very, light and subtle blur when played-reminiscent of super vintage Zildjians. 

THIS PARTICULAR 20" IS REMINISCENT OF A PAISTE TRADITIONAL LIGHT RIDE BOTH SONICALLY AND IN FEEL BUT IT HAS BETTER ATTACK AND A PINCH MORE BRIGHT SHIMMER ON TOP! 

It's a pinch CLEANER than a ZILDJIAN OR ISTANBUL and again, the attack is nice, tight and controlled! 

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.

So it's with great pleasure that I offer up this Unique and exceptionally balanced, warm sounding, Matt Bettis Custom 1972 gram 20" Ride in PERFECT CONDITION!!!  Check out the pictures.  There are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dings, or dents on this gorgeous 20"! It's in AMAZING SHAPE.  IT'S CLEAN!!!!

And check out that hammering!! THAT SURFACE IS WAVY!!! Absolutely GORGEOUS! And with a TON of hammering around that bell too! 

The pitch of this beauty is medium and it definitely has a darkness to it but there's a nice bright shimmer that floats above! 

Weighing in at a lovely 1955 grams this Bettis Custom 20" Ride plays like a Warm Thin Tight Ride. Stunning lathing and hammering grace the entire surface of this 20".  GORGEOUS!!!!  This Bettis Custom has a beautiful full wash with an even spread on that initial stick attack that decays fairly quickly giving this cymbal of lovely CONTROLLED FEEL! 

Again, reminiscent of a Paiste Traditional. But not as washy with a better stick definition but still warm and clean! 

The attack is slightly dry while the wash is fairly complex but not overbearing. 

And HELL YES IT'S CRASHABLE!! AT 1955 GRAMS this 20" Bettis is way crashable!!   

IMAGINE A HAND MADE PAISTE TRADITIONAL WITH BETTER DEFINITION, WITHOUT THE $500 PRICE TAG! 

Obviously this THIN and balanced 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! 

And it's definitely a headturner. NO ONE has this beauty! This isn't some Guitar Center fodder.

Why spend MORE MONEY on a machine made Zildjian K Constantinople or Paiste???

SAVE MONEY AND PLAY SOMETHING UNIQUE!!

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

So do yourself a favor and grab this Unique completely handmade glowing warm, tight and controlled, 1955 gram Bettis Custom 20" Ride.

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