Liquicy "vibrato" cymbals signify an innovative step in cymbal making. Hammerax's patent-pending technology creates a constantly phase-shifting vibrato in which tones are always moving and sweeping. A wild yet smooth effect. Crash the Liquicy's edge or ride the sweet spot with light sticks.
The flexing of the Liquicy cymbal actually adds shock resistance, so they are quite unlikely to crack. A major cause of keyholing and center cracking (besides the obvious lack of proper sleeves) is an over-worked and sharply punched hole. Hammerax borrows techniques from the aircraft industry and treats holes with great care—polishing holes to a rounded mirror finish—hence preventing the small micro-cracks from which most big cracks grow. This new alloy is also unusually strong and crack resistant. Your Hammerax Liquicy cymbal should last a very long time, even if you play them quite hard.
However, it is not recommended to over-bend a Liquicy cymbal. The subsonic vibrato is "tuned" to a perfect frequency to create the wave. Bending your Liquicy cymbal wildly to show off the flex could hurt the sound.

I first saw this cymbal at the Atlanta store and was really taken by it. It's uniqueness and sound was great. I purchased a 19" Liquacy. I love this cymbal. It rides beautifully and the crashes are astounding. It's a great addition to my kit. I'm thinking I might add another one later.
From the sound to the appearance of the cymbal when in use, these things are unique. I love mine, but make sure and listen to one before buying the thing.
