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 $560 on a new machine made Zildjian K Constantinople!!

$380 for a big-box-store humdrum smaller 20" K Custom Dry Ride?????

REALLY???

THIS ISN'T SOME DROP-AND-SHIP NONSENSE!! 

And this specific Bettis 22" is the paragon of DRY AND DARK!! And check out the lathing on the underside!! THIS 22" LOOKS LIKE AN EAK!! Super fine pinpoint lathing!! 

IMAGINE A VERY DRY, DARK, EAK! WELL, THAT'S THIS BEAUTY!! AND THE EDGE IS VERY THIN SO IT'S CRASHABLE AT THE EDGE! 

It's with great pleasure that I offer up this Unique, handmade, DRY DARK Matt Bettis Custom 22" Ride in PERFECT CONDITION!!!  Check out the pictures.  There are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dings, or dents on this gorgeous 22"! It's BRAND NEW!!!.

As you can see the top has a 3.5" raw band, while the rest of the top is lathed and heavily hammered, really cool looking.  The bottom is fully lathed (except for underneath the bell) and hammered and resembles a Zildjian EAK!

The bell has beautiful DEEP and wavy hammering throughout - reminiscent of an HHX. 

Weighing in at a lovely 2608 grams this Bettis Custom 22" Ride plays like a sinister DRY, DARK MEDIUM THIN Ride. GORGEOUS!!!!  This particular Bettis Custom is drier than Matt's typical cymbal, thanks to the raw band.  While it is dry, it still maintains a terrific complexity, but only for a nanosecond. 

It hits and quits.   

A very dark and unique sounding specimen. Perfect for lightning fast crash accents!! Again, the edge is razor sharp!

This is without a doubt one of the DRIEST Bettis cymbals I have encountered. And it's a joy to play on the larger, 22" playing field. The man knows his stuff!

Obviously this 2608 gram Bettis Custom 22" 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.

$560 for the garden variety non-hand hammered 22"??????

$380 for a 20" K Custom?? Not even a 22"???

Why not play something UNIQUE?? For WAY LESS??? Actually HAND MADE! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this completely handmade 2608 gram DRY DARK Bettis Custom 22" Ride. It's NEW! 

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