Sound Creation

  • A dark, earthy crash cymbal with amazing power and projection. Response is very quick even though the basic pitch is low. A very good cymbal for soft ride playing (especially if played with a light stick). It is also very effective with mallets and sticks for cymbal rolls.
    The feeling of this cymbal is ‘powerful, warm and dark’. (1)
