The Cindy Blackman Santana OM Series was designed in conjunction with Cindy to capture the vibier, more dynamic cymbal sounds from the golden era of Jazz. Focused, metallic sticking with a dark, dry wash and a thunderous crash make this ride a perfect choice for Jazz, Indie Rock, or any situation calling for the classic 60’s Turkish sound. The Mantra series plays perfect counterpart to Cindy’s OM series. Adding higher volume, and greater attack, while still maintaining a musical balance of warm overtones. Great for situations which require greater projection and cut that still require a rich, dark sound.
Istanbul Agop 22″ Cindy Blackman Mantra Ride
A musical, well defined ping but with plenty of body and musical overtones. A very clear and pronounced bell.
