    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.

    August, 2018 Update. Heartbeat continues to focus on evolving and developing our product lines based on our customers input. With that in mind, we are dropping the production of the Custom Rock series (at least, for the time being). This series has our heaviest cymbals. Heavy for Heartbeat is usually a medium weight for other brands. This series has featured the raw bell but fully lathed body (top and bottom). Any remaining inventory is available at reduced clearance prices.

    The Rock series is going through some changes as well. We are moving this series under the Armor name. These fully lathed cymbals will now be known as the Armor Brilliant series. No manufacturing changes are being implimented, just the name and logo change. But, any remaining Rock labelled cymbals are also available at reduced clearance prices. This includes the Rock splashes, crashes, rides, hats and Chinas. And the Holey crash effect cymbals formerly included in the Rock series now have their own series called (what else): Holey!
