Last week our artist Florian Alexandru-Zorn visited me to work on a sound idea he had for two rides and a hihat. Both rides started as a 21" Byzance Big Apple Ride, and we lathed one of them down stepwise to make it thinner on the outside. The other one (left-side ride) we simply sandblasted on both sides.
The hihat is a 13" Byzance Extra Dry which we lathed on the edge only and sandblasted the top cymbal.
Florian has made a nice little video where he demonstrates the sounds of all three models. We are working on new ride models for next year, so what do you think about them?
