Classic Crash Cymbals

The Classic Crash Cymbals and the entire Classic series from Heartbeat Percussion bring back the sound of original Turkish made cymbals of the early 60’s and 70’s. The classic concept of these fully lathed cymbals has been proven over and over again through the years. From the earliest of jazz drummers and bebop pioneers to the latest musical trends the Classic series covers them all.

Crashes are all medium thin in weight for excellent musicality. Many of today’s machine made cymbals are bright, heavy, loud and bleed through into the drum microphones. Heartbeat Classic crashes reduce overall volume and overtones making them a popular choice of churches everywhere.  Dark and thin, these cymbals provide a lovely quick decay and warmth not often found in machine made mass produced cymbals. Want something a bit darker? Try the Classic Thin Crashes.

Sizes range from 14″ to 21″ diameter. Classic series cymbals also mix well with the Studio series. Traditional finish and lathing make these cymbals as beautiful to look at as they are to listen to. Classic sounding cymbals from Heartbeat! All Heartbeat cymbals carry a two year limited warranty.
