Here are our current staff picks for Cymbals

 

Zildjian 14" K Hi-Hats Sabian Arena Mix Cymbal Set
Zildjian 14" K Hi-Hats Sabian Arena Mix Cymbal Set
These Zildjian 14" K Hi-Hats have a deep and solid "chick" sound. The low-pitched fast response makes these Hi-Hats highly defined with lots of character.
This Sabian Arena Mix Cymbal Set has been sonically matched in the Sabian Vault to create a unique mix of AAX and HHX Series Cymbals. It's the perfect balance between bright and dark sounds!

 

Paiste 2002 20" Novo China Cymbal

Paiste Formula 602 18" Paperthin Cymbal

 Paiste 2002 20" Novo China Cymbal  Paiste Formula 602 18" Paperthin Cymbal
The inverted bell on this 2002 20" Novo China is a Paiste innovation that makes this Cymbal extra versatile. This China Cymbal delivers a very bright, slightly trashy sound. Pairing a fast, responsive, explosive crash with a loud, clear defined bell makes this a very unique, versatile China for any playing style.
Paiste's Formula 602 18" Paperthin Cymbal is silvery and airy with a mystical touch. The thin weight gives it a fast response with a very soft, papery feel. This Paperthin Cymbal produces a medium wide range tonal range and a fairly complex mix. This is a graceful Crash Cymbal for delicate, sensitive playing.

 

Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials
14" Hi-Hats

Paiste Formula 602 20" Medium
Flatride Cymbal

Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essential 14" Hi-Hats Paiste Formual 602 20" Medium Flatride Cymbal
These Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials 14" Hi-Hats have a lush, warm quality that addes richness and depth to the overall sound. With a wide tonal range, these Hi-Hats produce a complex mix of purity and fullness.
The concept of the Flat Ride Cymbal is a Paiste innovation first introduced in the 1960s. The unique shape of this Paiste Formula 602 20" Medium Flatride gives it a pearly, woody stick sound with a silvery wash. The overall sound quality is warm, mellow, and crystal-like.

 

Meinl Byzance Dark Crashes Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Splash
Meinl Byzance Dark Crashes Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Splash
These Meinl Byzance Dark Crashes are a perfect contrast to the finely lathed, brilliant finish cymbals that many drummers have in their setups. These are raw, unlathed bronze discs of beauty that sound as satisfyingly dark as they look! You'll stand out in a good way with a pair of these in your setup.
The entire Byzance Extra Dry series by Meinl is excellent. Having cymbals with a dry, earthy sound allows for such clean grooves as the controlled cymbal wash doesn't overpower the groove. This Extra Dry Splash is exactly what a splash should be: quick and punchy. Highly recommended!

 

Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Rides Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Crashes
Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Rides Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Crashes
The original! European master drummer Benny Greb teamed up with Meinl to create the Sand Cymbals, and these Sand Rides were the cymbals that started it all. Capable of producing some very unique sounds, these Sand Rides are among our all time favorite rides.
New for 2012! These Byzance Vintage Sand Crashes were just released at the Meinl Drum Festival in June, and they fit right in with the excellent Sand Hats and Sand Ride. They are available in two versions and are highly recommended!

 

Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Crash Ride Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hats
Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Crash Ride Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hats
New for 2012! This crash ride was the other new Sand Cymbal released at the Meinl Drum Festival in June, and with it the family of Sand Cymbals became complete. At 22 inches and featuring 3 rivets, it's a monster crash ride with a stand out sound that is just killer!
Along with the other Sand Cymbals, these Sand Hats have been impressing us and our customers since they were introduced. They have a very special sound that works well for many musical styles. They are powerful but silky smooth at the same time. Check them out!
