The Sultan Series are slightly darker and more dry than their Traditional Series counterparts. The unlathed band on the top of each cymbal enhances sticking, controls overtones and gives the cymbal a slightly quicker decay. Unlathed bells enhance the darker musicality of this series.
Warm, dark and trashy with a changing complex sound caused by its unique design. The thinner weight and wider bell shape give the Sultan Jazz Ride a lower pitch while maintaining a more controlled stick definition.
