The Millennium models are finished with a bright, polished surface on top & bottom. The lathing on the bell is tight and concentric. On the bow, it expands to a width that is nearly double-spaced down the entire surface, all the way to the edge. These are thinner cymbals with lower weights. They utilize deeper lathing, and undergo a meticulous hand-hammering process that gives them a darker and richer, more traditional sound.
