CPA 23" FX Ride Cymbal
We wanted to make a line of FX Cymbals and Bells with different tonal values than traditional cymbals while keeping the signature “CP look” as we have with all our metal products.
CP FX Cymbals vs Traditional Cymbals
Bell: Thinner, hand-hammered
Body: Even thickness from bell to edge
Profile: Slight bow, more flat
-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 hand-cut, hand-hammered and hand-shaped.
-Each is individually heat-treated to bring out the unique colors and tones of the metal.
Body: Gets gradually thinner as you get to the outer edge
Material: Brass or Bronze
The CP FX Rides Cymbals can give you a dark and earthy texture while still creating a driving rhythmic focal point.
In addition to the great sound you will get from our Ride Cymbals, the coloring process will also add another dimension to your set up with an eye-catching design. Available in our Standard finish and our Starlight finish. The Starlight finish is a light-textured finish that gives the metal a sort of galaxy type look.
Stand out from the ordinary with CP FX Cymbals! No two are exactly alike!
