I always wanted to play on Turkish handcrafted cymbals and I love the fact that each one of them is unique. It is a great plus to me that two cymbals of the same range and model might not completely sound alike.

I particularly appreciate that Soultone cymbals come in a wide variety of types, sizes and weights. They really give me options when it comes to actually getting the sound I am looking for when I choose cymbals.

Drummers should try them because there are really versatile instruments. Whatever style of music you play, you'll be able to create a cymbal set that suits your style of music and your playing. Plus, they look great with any drum kit! :)

To be part of the long list of drummers endorsing Soultone Cymbals is a real honor. It is extremely important for me to play on high quality cymbals and to have options in terms of sound and textures so I can use the cymbals creatively when I play. In addition, Soultone Cymbals help me bring visibility on my playing and my music projects, and overall adds credibility to my career as a drummer.

The Soultone Cymbals Artist Relations team is super friendly. It feels like a family. They really do care about the artists and it is always a pleasure to exchange with them.
