    Matt Bettis 22 inch ride

    Matt Bettis 22-inch Ride Cymbal

    2,200 grams ... Dark, trashy sound ... great stick definition with just a bit of wash ... great jazz cymbal, but hearing more pop-rock guys going for this sound nowadays ... Bettis made this from a raw, blank Silken cymbal (Chinese) by hammering and lathing off some weight ...

    Excellent condition, rarely used ...

    Original owner ... purchased November 2008, early in Bettis' career ... collector's item ...

    Digging the dryness with that nice stick sound. Probably good with a few rivets too.

    Just to be clear for all potential buyers, I made that from a raw Silken blank, not a finished cymbal.

    Later,
    Matt

    Thanks for the clarification, Matt ... it's been some time, so my memory wasn't perfect on that one ... I'll edit the ad to acknowledge the correction ...

    No problemo. Just thought it would help your sale.

    I remember your cymbal very well. Somebody should get her.

    Later,
    Matt
