Loud, powerful and ideal for cutting through the mix, heavy cymbals answer the call for drum gear that can take a pounding and keep right on playing. How do heavy cymbals differ from paper-thin, thin and medium cymbals? Simply put, they're 'bigger.' Bigger in the sense that they're designed to fill larger venues, bigger in that they function extremely well in forceful genres like heavy and thrash metal and bigger for those times when you really want to let loose and play hard. Want to add a heavy cymbal or two to your kit? Look no further than this fully-stocked selection of cymbals.
