The Avedis Zildjian Co is pleased to introduce a new cymbal based on the collaboration with Marc Quiñones of the Allman Brothers. The new 17" El Sonido Multi Crash Ride Cymbal provides a versatility of sound in any Salsa, Jazz, Latin or Rock 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 R&D/Quality Manager, Paul Francis, for over a year to develop a cymbal that would work in both Marc's Latin Jazz group and 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.
