    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for touching base. I did notice your posting, and listened to the sound file a few times. Definitely a nice cymbal, but actually drier than I'm looking for. I'm pretty much looking to split the difference between yours and mine.

    I expect yours will sell more quickly than mine, though.

    All best.

    Dan

    I'd also consider a trade for a 22 thin Turk, Agop Sig or SE, or a reasonably well-behaved Bill Stewart ride.

    If this is still here by the end of the weekend, I'm going to ship it off to Maxwell's for some trade credit. So if you're on the fence, let me know soon.

    I found my ride. Now I'm after some dark and dry 15 or 16 hats, if anyone wants to swap.

    Guys, this is a cool cymbal. I bought it straight from Matt. The mixed types of bottom lathing increase stick definition. It has a cool Turkish sounding crash when struck with a soft mallet. Good candidate for an articulate LSR. I parted with it because I am chasing a vintage snare and a 22 inch cymbal. And these days, when I pick up something, I have to let something else go. Just my current financial situation. I have recorded with this cymbal and it records well.

    Good luck, guys! This is a Bettis in excellent shape for a fair price.

    I've gone back and forth on this one and finally decided to let it go. This cymbal would be a good pick for those of you that like the Al Foster SCDR type of thing. I have a recording where I used it that gives a good sense of how it sounds in the mix. PM me your email address if you're interested.
