The overtones are complex and fed by a seemingly unending sustain. This cymbal would not fit into a rock groove, but shines with traditional jazz. Listen to some of Joe Morello's work with the Dave Brubeck Quartet and you'll get a good sense of what this cymbal sounds like.
I've played this cymbal on sets and I'm tempted to sell my precious 22" ride and get one of these, but the older Avedis just seems to improve with age, so I won't.
As a side note, while I dearly love this cymbal, my absolute favorite ride is the 19" Zildjian Armand Signature Ride (ASIN B0002GFNF4). If you are considering this cymbal give the Armand Signature a look (and play) first before making a final decision.
