Thin Effect Cymbals
Thin Effect Cymbals
Effect cymbals may be the ones you use to add color, texture and individuality to your percussion sound, but that doesn't mean they need to be over-the-top heavy. In fact, one of the best ways to liven up your performance is with the subtler touch offered by some of these thin effect cymbals. Plus, thin doesn't have to mean quiet, and you'll find plenty of dramatic effects here that could give any heavier cymbal a run for its money. So buckle up and start thinking about what you could do to your drum set to really make your signature sound stand out - because whatever you come up with, there's probably a thin effect cymbal here that can deliver it.
Some of the cymbals in this section are basically sleepers - no one will ever see them coming, mixed in with your layout of traditional cymbals. The Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Trash Smash and the Meinl Generation X Rabb Drumbal are two examples of those. On the other hand, there are also plenty of cymbals here that the audience will see (and hear) a mile away! Nobody's going to miss the Zildjian ZXT Trashformer Cymbal, or the Zildjian Spiral Trash Effects Cymbal. So whether you want to take a stealthy approach or go all-out with cymbals that look as crazy as they sound, there are options here to make it happen.
Every type of cymbal offers plenty of choice, but most of them do encourage you to stick to certain categories or match the cymbal weight to your genre. Effect cymbals are different - they're 100% up to you. Feel free to mix one of these thin effect cymbals in with heavier rides and crashes, or maybe even create a unique layout that has a huge variety of these on top of a full range of traditional cymbals. You've got the freedom to go as wild as you want with effect cymbals, so don't hesitate to take advantage of it and build a setup like no other!
