The Rock Beat Series basically describes itself. These cymbals come in heavier weights than the other lines, in order to provide the cut&volume you’d expect from a rock model. The Rock Beat series is the brilliant finish version of our Classic series cymbals. Their extraordinary mirror-like high polish is completely done by hand. You can hear this in their specific sound character: Bright, cutting&powerful.

-Handcrafted in Istanbul, Turkey

-Clean, crisp chick. Great cutting sound. Full-bodied cymbals with a beautiful blend of warmth, sensitivity & clarity.

-Sumela series have an unconventional finish and a unique sound. There is a central band about 1.5" wide and 2" from the outer edge of the cymbal that is polished, though not brilliant. A similar, smaller band surrounds the bell. The rest of the top is lathed, but also acid-washed, which gives it a slightly rough, dry texture. The entire bottom of the cymbal is acid-washed, as well. This technique flattens the over-tones a bit. It also increases the propensity of the cymbal to tarnish, which gives our Sumelas a beautiful "vintage" green patina.

-For centuries, cymbals have been made in artisan workshops in Istanbul, Turkey, the acknowledged home of quality cymbal making.

-Cymbal alloys (most notably B20 alloys) have secret recipes passed through generations.

-Turkish Cymbals -Hand Cast, Hand Hammered, Hand Lathed. For centuries, cymbals have been made in artisan workshops in Istanbul, Turkey, the acknowledged home of quality cymbal making. Cymbal alloys (most notably B20 alloys) have secret recipes passed through generations and each Turkish Cymbal is hand cast, rolled whilst hot, hammered by skilled artisans, and tested to give the unique sound the Turkish Cymbals have, before being finished on a lathe. Only by hand-making can the cymbal be worthy of a top-flight drummer. Each cymbal has its own individual overtones and "DNA", whilst being broadly similar to its brothers. Your sound is unique with Turkish Cymbals. Probably the finest cymbals on the planet.
