The Pure Alloy Extra Hammered Crash-Ride is a cymbal you can be confident in, and when taken on a gig, it will function however you need. As a crash, it opens easily with a warm voice and medium sustain allowing it to be used in any musical application. As a ride, it features great separation between the stick definition on top and the warm wash underneath, and the bell is clear and pronounced providing plenty of cut when needed. This is a cymbal that any working drummer would benefit from having in their cymbal bag.
