Our Desert Series features a unique voice that is dry and dark with a smooth, silky undertone. Light and airy, they produce a mix of many colors which can be coaxed out through various playing techniques. Various combinations of lathed and unlathed surfaces, plus creative sandblasting all come together to forge the great sound of our Desert Series. Excellent for jazz, funk, R&B, and studio. Compare to Meinl Vintage Sand Rides, Crashes, and Hi Hats.
