Product Description

WITH AN EPIC CHARACTER YOU DEFINE IN A MOMENT’S NOTICE, THESE ARE NOT YOUR STANDARD POWER CYMBALS.

We’ve all been there. Your energy is soaring. Maybe you're with a band, and everyone is really clicking, or you've reached the height of your practice session.

You hit the last chorus of the song, and it feels like it's time to rip open the roof above you.

THERE'S NO HOLDING BACK NOW.

And once it's done, that's when it hits you—you aren't worn out because you haven't been playing through your cymbals. Your sticks may be chewed to pieces but you didn't lose touch with nuance and complexity along the way.

You sat comfortably on top of the mix with a serious punch but without overpowering with a glassy ring.

THE BEST PART? YOU'RE STILL ENERGIZED.

This is how we started making Classics Custom Dark cymbals. We put ourselves in the driver's seat and asked how we can get to this feeling. We wanted all the great things that come with power, along with a dialed-in sustain and a shadowy mosaic of complex sound.

Wave goodbye to bright overtones—it's going to get dark.

Classics Custom Dark Cymbals pack a punch. Period.

They are designed for players who need cymbals that cut with agility. They give you plenty of snap to be heard among a dense mix of electric guitars, while their presence echoes the darker nature of a deeply hammered cymbal.

The cymbals do this because of:

  • Extra hammering — you'll notice some of the craters are DEEP (hammering darkens and dries the sound while adding tonal complexity)
  • Additional lathing — bands of exposed brightly colored bronze accent the dark finish to help dial-in overtones
  • The use of B10 bronze — a solid, reliable and loud alloy that doesn't sound choked when you lay into it
