Custom made for Latin and world applications.
The 17" El Sonido Multi Crash Ride cymbal stems from the Avedis Zildjian Company's collaboration with Marc Quiñones of the Allman Brothers. This cymbal provides a versatility of sound in any salsa, jazz, Latin, or rock music setting.
Part of Zildjian's "FX" series of cymbals, the 17" El Sonido Multi Crash Ride features a lathed, medium-thin weight outer portion of the instrument to help create a fast and expressive crash response. In contrast, the thicker unlathed center area produces a maximum projection of sound while the unlathed, larger cup aids in providing ride articulation and a pure bell tone. Zildjian's brilliant finish not only completes the El Sonido Multi's striking appearance but also helps to provide extra sparkle to its sound.
Marc worked with Zildjian's developers for over a year to develop a cymbal that would work in both Marc's Latin jazz group and in Allman Brothers Band percussion set-ups and could be played with a drumstick, timbale stick, or by hand.
No stranger to designing instruments with Zildjian, Marc also plays his Marc Quiñones Zildjian Artist Series "Rock" and Salsa" Timbale sticks, available via the box of recommended accessories.
A versatile and endlessly useful cymbal. Make it part of your cymbal arsenal today.

Comments about Zildjian El Sonido Multi Crash Ride:
I bought this cymbal about 4 months ago to use as secondary ride cymbal. This is actually the smallest cymbal I own besides my hats. I quickly found out that this would not work as a ride cymbal for me, as I am a pretty heavy hitter and this thing goes all over the place. However the bell sounds really nice, I actually like it better than the bell on my Armand ride. What I really love about this cymbal is the crash sound. Compared to my other cymbals, this one sounds like a combination of a trashy splash and a crash cymbal. It opens up really nicely with the lighest of touch, and is great for accents. As a crash it is my second favorite cymbal, comparing it to my Zildjain A and A custom crashes.
