This bright, hard-hitting line meets the needs of anyone playing primarily in an amplified setting who is looking for a loud, bright, and penetrating quality that will cut through the sound of the rest of the band and deliver the energy of the drummer right to the audience.Unique to the ENERGY line, the bell is left un-lathed focusing the weight of the cymbal in and around its center. This results in a cymbal that has a slightly exotic timbre with all the sound qualities that a rock or metal drummer is listening for combined with a raw, unrefined look. ENERGY cymbals are also excellent recording cymbals that will have you sounding great in the studio.This is a great crash when you need more projection. The sustain is longer and the attack is explosive. Somehow this cymbal maintains a fantastic level of control making it a popular choice among pros.Features:Surface: top hat micro lathed, bottom hat unlathedBow: medium taper, gradual bridgeBell: broad, loud, unlathedWeight: medium to heavyHammering: deep hammered hot and coldStick: very clear, cutting projectionWash: extreme power, broad dynamic range, full bodied.
