This is one of few New Old Stock of Spizzichino cymbals left.
To me, this one of the very best work done by Roberto Spizzichino.
Roberto Spizzichino always searched for better a cymbal blank, and he tried blanks from China for few years. He eventually gave up on using Chinese bronze due to inconsistency of the quality of the blanks. But, he did score a few good cymbals from Chinese blanks. And, this is one of them.
I have tried several Spizzichino cymbals, and I must say that this cymbal has very unique sound compared to other Spizzichino cymbals. It is very strong with stick definition, and the crash sound from hitting the bow with stick shoulder is so exotic.
