Red Brights are just that…bright. However they possess a warmth that a lot of brighter cymbals may lack due to their weight and thickness. These cymbals are medium/thin and will cut through without being tonally obnoxious.
Hybrid - where dark meets bright and agrees on semi-dry
The Hybrid, with it’s alternating lathed and unlathed composition create a traditional, earthy yet powerful and solid cymbal sound with a raw bell. The cymbals are medium/thin weight.
Bright Hybrid - ‘Worship’ Series
This series is brighter to a degree, than the standard Hybrid cymbals and are great all round cymbals suited to a range of diverse styles of music. This series is a great combination of a ‘crashable’ ride with great stick definition which doesn’t override the entire drum and stage sound. The crash cymbals are a hybrid of dry and bright. They are strong enough in sound to project but sensitive enough to provide a diverse dynamic range. The hi-hats are crisp, bright and slightly tonally dry but have a bright and heavy bottom hi-hats which makes their sound more robust. Customisations to the thickness and sound can be made on request to suit individual players.
The Dark series possess rich dark and dry tones. They are unlathed on top yet to provide a unique contrasting sound as they are lathed underneath. The cymbals are medium/thin with a ‘crashable’ ride that has great stick definition. The hi hats cut through yet are dry in tone and not overly bright. The crashes are responsive, dry and have a quick decay.
This series is both bright and warm in tone. The main body of the cymbal is similar to the Bright series yet with extra hand hammering and unlathed portions to provide a warmth and shimmer which differentiate it from other series.
