The Hammerax Indigo Crash® Cymbal features 3 small microcups that Hammerax refers to as "buttons." These buttons are created through hammering and alter the grain structure dramatically at the area around the button. By adding these off-center microcups around the main cup the general crash tone is mellowed. No harsh mids will stand out in your Indigo crashes.
The buttons also provide a variety of complex bell sounds and stick FX. Indigo crashes are hammered and tempered with a smooth, rich, and dark sound in mind. They have very mellow highs with a silvery mid sweep. The main cup in Indigo crashes is not a loud piercing bell. It is rather designed to add richness and volume to the overall crash. Bell sounds in Hammerax Indigo crashes tend to integrate with the cymbal as a whole, although the buttons do allow for woody stick sounds.
Another technical breakthrough of the Hammerax Indigo Crash cymbal is the near elimination of the "hum note" or low "ooh" sound heard in most cymbals. The fundamentals of Indigo are so low and soft that they won't interfere with vocals or chords. Indigo crashes are made from Hammerax's patent-pending alloy and are very tough so they can be played quite hard and can open up to a surprising loudness if needed.
