For those that want something a little brighter and clearer than our Classic series, the Rock and Custom Rock series are the answers. Both series are brilliantly lathed, but the Custom Rock has a raw/unlathed bell to soften it a touch. These cymbals compliment the Heartbeat line up extremely well. While not explosive or loud as other brands’ “rock” cymbals might be, these series are still thinner and darker than many. Don’t let the names fool you! These could be used in church venues without the fear of rebuke, as we hear often about many store bought machine made cymbals. These series pair well with the Custom series (the lathing on the edge of the Custom cymbals IS the lathing on the entire Rock cymbal).
The Rock and Custom Rock series work especially well within the gospel music genre, and certainly is at home in rock, blues and country. For effects, the Holey crashes are extremely popular. Holey crashes are great trashy effect cymbals that are more versatile in worship venues than Chinas. And, for fun, Heartbeat offers Holey Chinas too!
If you are using any of the Rock or Custom Rock series, we would love to hear from you.
