Antique Series

 

The Antique Series marries the two lathing patterns of the Traditional Series and the Turk Series. This Unique family combines the brilliance of a classic, lathed cymbals and the complex dryness of a raw, unlathed cymbals. Expect strong definition and ample but controlled overtones from the rides.

 Sambal Series

 
“If you play in a lot of acoustic settings (or even amplified music at lower to medium volumes), you’d be hard pressed to find a finer or more musical set of cymbals. For many styles beyond just Samba, these cymbals have a complex, aged tone with an expressive responsiveness that will make for an immensely satisfying playing experience.”
