Atacama precision flat ride

Atacama precision flat ride

Size: 20

The name Atacama comes from a large desert plateau in South America west of the Andes
Mountains. It is referred to as the driest desert on the planet, and this arid quality is reflected in
this cymbal pair. The 14” crash is thin and completely hammered to the edge, except for the bell
which is not hammered. The result is an extremely dry and dark crash with very little overtone
resonance and a rapid decay. This characteristic allows for clear articulation with sticks without
overbearing sustain or excessive volume. The 20” Flat Ride is complimentary to the crash in that
it is also extremely dry with no dominating overtones. All articulations can be precisely heard
without imprudent sustain, a very advantageous feature when performing at low volume in an
acoustical environment.
