The Vortex is revoltionary in cymbal lathing. the Amedia Masters have created one of the most unique cymbals available today. A very fine lathing and heavy hammering starts the process and then a proprietary finish lathing gets applied which delivers a cymbal that is dark, warm and full bodied. Generally medium thin to thin in construction the Vortex is perfect for Jazz but it doesnt stop there. Fusion and light rock genres are looking for cymbals that are dark and offer a versatility in crashing. The Vortex delivers in multiple settings.
