UFIP Class 16″ Series Light Crash Cymbal
UFIP Class Series cymbals are a Cast Bronze B20 ‘Rotocast’ cymbal range, completely handmade, cross hammered and hand-finished. After 80 years of cymbal making experience, these are the most complete and versatile cymbals UFIP make.
Using their in-house Sound Control System (SCS), UFIP are able to classify every cymbal via its final weight using three categories: High, Medium and Low. This gives drummers a complete range of choice when picking cymbals to complement each other making them a range of cymbal for the professional player at a price not as far out of reach as you might assume…
These Italian cymbals are truly worthy of their ‘Class’ name, and in the words of the boss-man here, they are simply “to die for!”

They’ve certainly trained some Master Craftsmen, including the people behind Zanki, Tosco and the legendary Roberto Spizzichino.
