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 24" multifunctional crash-rides provided luscious, full crashes as well as refined, expressive articulation. The 24" had the strongest ride potential. It was best suited for massive accents and Bonham-style ride grooves. 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 (especially with the 24"). 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." - Michael Dawson
