The 17" El Sonido Multi Crash Ride cymbal stems from the Avedis Zildjian Company's collaboration with Marc Quiñones of the Allman Brothers. This cymbal provides a versatility of sound in any salsa, jazz, Latin, or rock music 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 Zildjian's developers for over a year to develop a cymbal that would work in both Marc's Latin jazz group and in 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, available via the box of recommended accessories.

I was skeptical about this cymbal but I played it on the guitar center floor and it was incredible. When used as a ride it has good stick definition over a big wash. When used as a crash it's very unique it sounds mostly like a crash but with just a few china flavors it's very cool. Good cymbal.
