Amedia “Kommagene” Series Cymbals

With a name derived from an ancient civilization in Turkey, where the cymbal manufacturer Amedia crafts its wares, the Kommagene Series cymbals are expectedly old-school in design and purpose: unhammered bell, light lathing, aged finish, hand-hammered bow, best used in swinging settings. Among the Kommagene models that jazz drummers should hear are a ride cymbal ($620.80 online, in 19, 20, 21, 22 and 24-inch versions) and hi-hats ($555.40, in 13- and 14-inch versions). amediacymbals-usa.com
