These unique cymbals are designed for drumset players and hand percussionists. All models can be played with sticks, mallets, brushes, or simply only with bare hands, allowing for a wide spectrum of sonic textures. All the cymbals are dynamically extremely responsive, ideal for percussionists performing in acoustic environments, as well as close mic studio situations. My concept in designing these cymbals was to create a natural environment of sounds that can be controlled and shaped creatively in many different ways. My experience performing as a hybrid drummer/hand percussionist in the contemporary music genre, as well the world music, jazz, and film scoring fields, has inspired me for these sound creations. All of the models in the series are named in relation to something in the natural world around us: elements such as wind or water, the rattle of a reptile, the climate and geology of a region, or astronomical occurrences. This series is designed to enhance the artistry and creative expression the musician can achieve with unique, intimate, and dramatic cymbal soundscapes.
Models include: Atacama, Snake, Water, Satellite, Gamma, Löß, Karaburan and NEW Tüy & Toprak Mini Hi-Hats.
