Session Series were designed to merge the classical Traditional Series with modern Radiant Series. The mellow sound of Traditional cymbals blend with the bright, attack sound of Radiant for a medium weight, versatile, all-around cymbal. The cymbal has a brilliant, polished area from the bell to the half section of the edge and traditional finish for the rest. Session series hi-hats have a raw heavy bottom for a crisp sound. The ride cymbal has a power bell that is a little bit larger than usual. Also, the new china designed for the session series has a distinctive profile with a wide reverse edge for trashy effect. We recommend session series for todays players who play varied musical gigs and need versatile cymbals.
