They have a warmth that seduces at low volume and thunders with a froth of dark undertones at more extreme volumes. These cymbals come alive, shimmering and wobbling as if the mere touch of human hands excites the cymbal and it canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to get itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s voice out there and sing.
They are exceptionally resilient and slightly soft on the stick. The undertones are warm, rich, dark with an edge of dragonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s breath. Each one is a unique, complex voice that will excite your imagination.
