WHAT”S NEW FOR 2018?


I’ve got some new tools for 2018.


The photo above is of my new Turkish Hammer.

The hammer weighs 1.21 Kilos with an 8” handle.


I remember Roberto saying to me that I needed to get a turkish hammer and anvil and it’s taken some time to procure them.


The shape, design and weight of the hammer helps to create a bit more deformation in the bronze which creates a bit more trash in the final sound.

I’ve never been a fan of trash beyond a certain point and this hammer seems to give some ‘dragons breath’ without going to the dark side of trash (overly reduced dynamic potential, loss of stick clarity and a large reduction of sweeter complexity and overall spread).


I’ve been so impressed with the sonic characteristics (SC’s) created by the Turkish hammer, that I’ll be using the acronym ‘TH’ on cymbals where I feel those SC’s are prevalent.

A bunch of Rustico’s ready to be lathed.

Orchestral cymbals - 15” Pair, 17” Pair and 16” & 18” Suspended.
