Powerhouse Lenny White with favor of restrained funk and intention of putting the rock back into jazz-rock, collaborated to create these cymbals to be unusual and unique to his sound.
"Lenny White's Epoch line was developed to re-create the famous ride that jazz legend Tony Williams used on the
classic Miles Davis album Nefertiti. The resulting
22" Epoch ride cymbal proved so successful at capturing
Williams' raspy tip-and-shank signature that White
and Istanbul decided to expand the line with crashes and hats.
The 14" Epoch hi-hats are fairly thick, making them a little tough to control with the stick but great for busy left-foot interjections. Their dry, throaty splash sound was perfect for DeJohnette-style foot crashes. When played with sticks, the
hats had a fairly high-pitched timbre and a lot of
metallic overtones. These aren't the ideal hi-hats
for super-subtle dynamic shifts. But for modern
jazz applications where you're not afraid to really
work your cymbals, White's Epochs have a lot
to offer." - Michael Dawson
"All of the Epochs are distinguished by their medium to medium-heavy weights. This bulk, combined with the amount of hammering and lathing present produces stunningly complex cymbals that also deliver a potent kick. The hi-hats are bright and cutting yet at the same time warm and full-bodied. Received wisdom might suggest that such characteristics would cancel one another out, but these hats defy such conventions. Instead they produce a delicious blend of deep, earthy tones beneath the sizzling attack. Stepping gives a fat 'chick' while laying into them with a relaxed pedal foot leaves them fizzing with enthusiasm." - Adam Jones
