I gave my Pearl Session Custom set to my nephew due to carpal and ulnar nerve issues after 40+ years. The last ten with no warm up or stretches got me. I couldn't stay away and with plenty of bit and pieces and a 75 Rogers kit and Meinl timbales I began again. For too long I ignored getting a solid grasp on latin beats that I love. A few cowbells later I was on it. Anyhow, this caught my eye. My old ride was crazy loud and this looked to be the bell I wanted.Ugly ping. Sounded like a blacksmith's shop. I take that back. A decent anvil sounds far better than this thing. Horrible piece of brass. Meinl should be ashamed. After spending piles on cybals over the years I should have known better. I am ashamed. It is shiny. Not worth the effort to return. Heat and a hammer and who knows. Trust me on this one.
This thing somehow managed to both, suck and blow, although it is very shiny.
Drums since 11
Mostly rock but Mambo has been calling for a long time
