Enjoy Artisanal Craftsmanship of Unparalleled Quality with the Master Series

Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. In 2014, three crashes and two hats join the series to expand the unique Masters sound atmosphere to additional cymbal types. Masters integrate the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers.

Masters Series Sound Profile

Warm, full, rich, deep, broad. A wide variety of sound concepts from dark to bright, dry to sustaining, pronounced to washy, smooth to strong. Each cymbal has its very own sound character that has to be experienced.

Dark Crash Sound Character

Dark, warm, smoky. Medium wide range, complex mix. Buttery, soft feel with quick response. Rich, dark, mystical crash sound with tender clarity. Extremely lively cymbal for broad accents and crashes in intimate to semi-loud settings. Well suited for delicate ride patterns or mallet swells.

"For those guys who really appreciate just having a cymbal that can do everything, the larger Dark Crashes can do anything. Very crash-able, and if you want to ride on them, they will give you all the ride patterns in the world." - Gregory Hutchinson
