Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of quality bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. In 2014, three crashes and two hats join the series to expand the unique Masters sound atmosphere to additional cymbal types. Masters integrate the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers.
It has a dark, very dry, deep sound and a medium wide range with complex mix. It has a fairly soft, bouncy feel that's very controllable with a woody, pronounced, warm ping over a very dry low-pitched wash. Overall, this is a precise, earthy cymbal for defined, controlled playing in many musical styles.
