50% quieter than traditional cymbals due to multiple piercings through the metal. The production process contains our same highest quality B20 bronze, retaining the response, articulation, and feel of all of our cymbals purely. Ideal for low volume situations and avoiding ear debilitation, they are excellent companions in practice rooms, educational environments, small performance spaces, or any situation where sound control is needed. Additionally, these cymbals can be combined or stacked in various combinations which grants the possibility to use powerful stick strokes with controlled sound and precise articulation; very complmenting for electronic music, jungle, hip-hop, or drum & bass styles.
