We wanted to make a line of FX Cymbals and Bells with different tonal values than traditional cymbals, while still keeping the signature "CP look" that we have with all our metal products.
The videos displayed below are samples of FX Cymbals we have previously made.
Please contact us and we will send you a video of the FX Cymbals currently in stock so you can hear the tones, see the coloring and choose which one is right for you.
CP FX Cymbals vs. Traditional Cymbals
Bell: Thinner, hand-hammered
Body: Even thickness from bell to edge
Profile: Slightly bowed, more flat
Body: Gets gradually thinner as you get to the outer edge
Material: Brass or Bronze
With CP FX Cymbals, the stretched metal of the bell, due to hand-hammering, makes our bells not quite as loud as a traditional cymbal bell but still loud enough to cut through the mix.
Our cymbals are not lathed or pressed with a hydraulic machine, they are cut, hammered and shaped by hand.
Each is individually heat-treated to bring out the unique colors and tones of the metal.
