John Riley on Cymbals

More cymbal demonstrations from the and the Memphis Drum Shop, this time played by drummer/educator John Riley.

Amazingly, the Zildjian cymbal company has attempted to recreate Mel Lewis' legendary 22" inch A Zildjian Swish Knocker that was given to him by Dizzy Gillespie.

Check out these nice cymbals here:

Here's more footage, this time of Zildjian R&D maestro Paul Francis demonstrating the recent "Adam Nussbaum" ride cymbal:
