Artisan is all about traditional dark, rich tone – they virtually sizzle with it.
Relies on high-density hand hammering to deliver deep, dark, rich tone for the most discerning drummers.
"I used the 14" and 15" pairs on the same jazz gig
and found them all appropriate, depending on the sound I was going for. The 14" set was great all around and was definitely the most versatile. They fit best in a jazz situation, with a nice foot "chick," a smooth stick sound, and a nonabrasive wash. Even the smallest amount of looseness between the cymbals created a huge, and highly palatable, washy sound. These beautiful sounding cymbals were just as warm and responsive as the other sizes but with more
volume and deeper, darker frequencies." - Anthony Riscica
"When trying out the new Artisans, I took them to the Merit School of Music, where I have some talented young students, many of
whom play in various professional situations in the Chicago area. All of the new Artisans were an instant hit. All of the hi-hats had a nice sticking feel, offering the ability dig, yet keep the pattern
moving and dancing. The 14-inch hi-hats have a strong, pronounced "chick." Several of my students thought the 14-
inch models would be ideal for rock, fusion, gospel, hip-hop, r&b, Latin and more. The consensus was that the cymbals are versatile" - Doug Brush
