Meinl artist Chris Coleman designed the C Squared (C2) ride cymbal combines elements of several different cymbals used by Chris, into a single versatile ride. Starting with a heavy blank, the bow is worked into to a high profile; this combination of weight and shape work together to accentuate the desired stick articulation and presence. The holes around the edge are an uncommon feature found on ride cymbals, but they were added to control the wash and sustain that larger cymbals generate and to further augment the definition Chris desired to stand out in the mix. While the bell is thick enough to cut through any band, the hand-hammering gives it a warm and earthy tonality for a more musical punch. The overall extraordinary look of this cymbal with its raw, unlathed surface and holes combined with its intense sound will make everyone take notice when you add it to your kit. Chris Coleman: “I wanted something I could use for a lot of things so I don’t have to carry multiple ride cymbals with me every time I play. I can cover a lot of ground with this ride, and it just does everything I need it to do and sits well in the mix too.”
