Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres.
Dark, soft, warm, deep.
Medium wide range, complex mix.
Buttery feel, very responsive.
Fine stick sound with hints of silver and wood over a broad, low-pitched warm, deep, multilayered wash.
Wide, warm, full crash sound. Very lively, controllable.
Multifunctional cymbal for refined ride playing and swelling, deep crashes.
Also well suited for mallet playing mallets.
"The 22" multifunctional crash-ride delivered sparkling stick attack and dynamic, explosive crashes. Minimalist drummers looking to create a small setup incorporating a single cymbal will find everything they need in the 22" Masters Thin. It had a warm, classic tone that's not as complex or trashy as some vintage-style hand-hammered cymbals, plus it had extra high-end clarity that gave it a touch more articulation. In fact, the Masters Thin crash-rides were reminiscent of the Giant Beat cymbals Bonham used in the early days with Led Zeppelin, only in a much darker, lower-pitched color. - Michael Dawson
"First impressions reveal how easily Thins all open to crash. And what a crash... wide, deep and fizzing with warmth and musicality. The same liveliness is apparent when riding, as any sticking is soon chased by a busy wash. Playing with particular care keeps the wash under control; once a certain velocity is reached, each of the Thins happily breaks into a rolling crash that adds an alluring blend of looseness and excitement to the proceedings. Moving onto the bell brings a sharpening of tone, but these cymbals are far too civilised to be mere clangers. They’re full of subtleties and are begging for the scrutiny of a recording studio." - Adam Jones
