        Received the 22" just in time for my Thursday night gig and let me tell you, this thing is a monster! The bell cuts through distortion like a warm knife through butter! The body of the cymbal is exactly what I wanted as well, short and crisp without too much of a washy ring. I highly recommend this ride for any serious aggressive or extreme style of playing! Paiste all the way!
