UFIP Experience Series 14″ Blast Extra-Dry Hi-Hat Cymbals
UFIP Blast Hi-Hats are a new concept in recreating the modern EFX sound of Hi-Hat cymbals drilled with holes – but without the holes! UFIP’s Cymbal-Smiths are not too happy with the idea of cutting out chunks from their cymbals to find an alternative sound, because they believe any such process will weaken the overall structure of the metal. After continuous research and development, UFIP managed to achieve the dream of dynamic, trashy sounding Hi-Hats without having to resort to drilling huge holes all over the cymbal.
With a clever double-hammering process employing hand and machine techniques, Experience Blast cymbals deliver bright, explosive, trashy, Oriental overtones with extremely dynamic playability. A very modern sounding cymbal range popular with Drum & Bass, Electronic and modern Funk/R&B sounds.

UFIP (pronounced ‘ooh-fip’) stands for ‘Unione Fabbricanti Italiani Piatti’ (Union of Italian cymbal manufacturers) and has been hand making cymbals from the Tuscany region since 1931. They’ve certainly trained some Master Craftsmen, including the people behind Zanki, Tosco and the legendary Roberto Spizzichino. Today, UFIP cymbals are producing some incredible instruments for every style of player.
