UFIP Experience 17″ Blast Extra-Dry Crash Cymbal


Una esplosione del suono!


UFIP Experience Series 17″ Blast Extra-Dry Crash Cymbal

UFIP Blast Crashes are a new concept in recreating the modern EFX sound of an Oriental Crash cymbal, but without the need to drill holes to achieve the sound in the way other cymbal companies do this.

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 explosive, Oriental sounding EFX Crashes 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 Crash cymbals deliver bright, explosive, trashy, Oriental overtones with a very fast attack and short decay. A very modern sounding cymbal popular with Drum & Bass, Electronic and modern Funk/R&B sounds.
