The Comet is an exceptional multi purpose effect cymbal. It has a springy, elastic design due to the unique spiral cutting through the cymbal. By suspending from a cymbal stand it can be struck in any fashion, as well just with bare hands, producing an ethereal and breathy sound excellent for sound FX applications. The spring effect can be collapsed and thereby mounted on top of another cymbal, producing an articulate stack sound with quick response and short sustain. As its name suggests, it is out of this world!
