The Masters series is a collection of exquisite and laboriously hand-crafted cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres.
In an exceptionally long development phase of almost three years, Sound Development envisioned Jazz & Acoustic rooted cymbals with extraordinary versatility to allow for a complete range of sound requirements with minimal instrumentation. The resulting 20, 22 and 24 Thin and the corresponding 14, 15 and 16 Thin Hi Hat thus provide true all-around capability and multi-functionality.
Both models, executed in thin weights and with low curvatures, feature particular responsiveness, tranquility and balance. These very dynamic cymbals are nonetheless capable of sufficient volume, given their range of sizes. They share a soft, buttery feel and a fairly short, unobtrusive and especially controllable character. A fine, silvery stick sound combines with warm, deep, complex, multilayered washes and open sounds. The Thin model functions equally well as a ride, crash or mallet cymbal.
