The “Mark X” Principle
Throughout the creation of these cymbal sounds with their own character and a defined dynamic function, we also reserve ourselves the liberty to vary on the same principle. We call these variations subsequently “Mark I”, “Mark II” and so on. With making use of this principle we liberate ourselves and are able to research openly by developing completely creative sounds in the world of cymbal making.
