“A drummer’s cymbal set is just as important as their drum set. Finding the right sound for a scenario can be a task but Soultone makes that easy. Top notch quality craftsmanship and their wide variety of models has something for everybody!
It was love at first strike for me w/ their Natural series. Beautiful, sustaining overtones mixed w/ a sharp cut that works for any genre & volume level. I’ve been a serious fan of Soultone for years since I first heard them played live and now I’m proud to be an official artist! Live or studio, Soultone Cymbals are the real deal!”
