True - what Joe said. BUT ...
Bosphorus Turks will be quite a bit drier and quieter than the Paistes and Sabians you mention. Making all that sound like one, consistent whole may take a whole lot of "you".
Surpringly, given the diameter and weight, a 22” Sound Creation Dark China is quite quiet and polite as a ride. Extremely ... contained.
Admittedly not the most available or affordable option, but it fits the description to a tee.
Sounds really good, TK. I can imagine this thing sounding even better in a larger room where it can settle right in the middle of the mix.
What possessed to consider another Rough? You have three now, no? Great cymbals. I think you've inspired me to bring out mine for this week's recording...
Oh that 21" Medium Ride! (I already have one, but they don't get the love they deserve.)
Great for everything from small group jazz through loudish rock.
Very good price for such a great and under-appreciated cymbal. Good luck with the sale.
Played the 22" Nolan a bit last night and holy cow, what a cymbal.
A couple years back I got a 20" thin ride from Matt and it's great - partially lathed, dry, quiet. I wanted a 22" to go with it.
So my request to Matt was a quiet, dryish ride, but with some mass (I don't like very light rides...
One way would be to apply the foam to 4x8 veneer panels (very light and cheap) then lean/hang those close to/touching the walls. Super clean and the panels can be moved should the need arise. Like if you needed some gobos for recording or whatever.
Like most drummers in their formative years during Rush’s heyday, Neil was a major influence and inspiration. I literally lived and breathed his playing for the better part of a decade.
RIP, brother. You done good.
