With a beefy bell and thin edge, the Han cymbal creates a truly unique sound. Very splash-like initially, but with the sustain and warmth of a much larger cymbal.
Designed to be mounted on a regular cymbal stand these effects cymbals can be used in many creative ways. They have a bell like tone with a long ringing sustain and can be a trashy cymbal topper or extra inverted bell. Mix and match different sizes for maximum pitch and sonic variation.

Timsha Finger Cymbals
Cast in the mountains of India, these custom finger cymbals come in 4 sizes. They have earned a home in all sorts of music, from symphony orchestras, to movie scores to percussion and drum set-ups. Unlike other commercially available finger cymbals, these have the mass, clarity and sustain to actually be heard. Carefully tuned so that each note is slightly out of tune with its partner, the resulting cluster creates a magical shimmer that soars over top of whatever they are played against.
