RIKKI ROCKETT Bosphorus Rockett Ride (Press Release)

Date September 19, 2007 / 783 reads

With the new Rockett Ride, Bosphorus adds a true heavy duty rock cymbal to our palette of sounds. Designed with Poison drummer Rikki Rockett, these rides are optimized to accommodate the kind of high volume, large venue settings Rikki has been been rocking for more than twenty years. An oversized unlathed bell opens to a traditionally lathed main ride surface with another unlathed area near the edge. The bottom is completely unlathed except for a narrow strip near its edge. Weighing in at more than 3000 grams, the result is a clear ping ride with an extreme bell sound. When sheer power is needed, these rides can penetrate the most aggressive mix while retaining the musicality our hand made cymbals are known for. Available in 20 and 22 inch models. Scheduled for a January NAMM release, you can preview these cymbals now in stock at the following select Five Star Drum shops:

Atlanta Pro Percussion, Fork's Drum Closet, Memphis Drum Shop, Tommy's Drum Shop, Columbus Pro Percussion, Donn Bennett Drum Studio and BackBeats Drum Shop.
