Medium Heavy Cymbals
Medium Heavy Cymbals
When you play percussion, you know better than anyone else that drums come in lots of different shapes, sizes and styles - but they've got nothing on cymbals. Not only are there tons of different alloys and formulations of bronze and even more exotic metals, but everything from the lathing to the hammering process can have a huge impact on the sound... and of all the many traits that separate any two cymbals, one of the most important is weight. A cymbal can be anywhere from paper-thin to beyond heavy, but if you're looking for something closer to the middle, you might find what you need in this selection of medium-heavy cymbals.
A medium-weight cymbal can usually be thought of as the jack-of-all-trades: not too loud and not too soft, with a good amount of sustain and middling rates of attack and decay. So when you look at medium-heavy cymbals, you can expect similar performance with a little extra volume, power and sustain at the cost of slightly slower attack and decay. Whether you're in it for their hard-hitting aggression, or maybe to take a craftier approach and use the restrained attack to your advantage, there are lots of ways to mix some of these cymbals into your signature drumming style.
In the lineup you'll find a wide range of foundational cymbals like the Sabian B8X Rock Crash Cymbal and the Zildjian ZHT Ride - but those are just the beginning. Want to add some dramatic effects to your performance? Check out options such as the Paiste Rude Blast China Cymbal and the Sabian Chopper. Or maybe you'd like a cymbal that sounds as dark as it looks? In that case, the Sabian HHX Series Phoenix Cymbal is a real standout. The bottom line is that it's all up to you: it's your cymbal setup, it's your sound, and when you want to charge up your performance with new medium-heavy cymbals, it's your decision as to which ones to bring on board!
