Jazz Crash Cymbals

Introduced in 2016 with only a 22″ ride, The Jazz series has a lengthy history leading up to its creation.

Starting in early 2005, Heartbeat commenced a special project with a cymbal company to recreate a specific cymbal from the 1960s. After months of trial and error, we finalized the design and had a limited number produced for us. But, as often times happens, circumstances and events brought an end to Heartbeat’s arrangement with that manufacturer.

Jump forward to 2010 and the start of Heartbeat cymbal production. Heartbeat’s Noel never forgot that cymbal collaboration, but it remained on the shelf. That changed in 2014, when the project was revived, but this time with the Heartbeat cymbalsmiths.

After two years of working with prototypes adjusting the hammering, lathing, bell size, profile and weight, Heartbeat introduced the Heartbeat Jazz Ride cymbal. Recreating some of the amazing jazz sounds that were established by drummers such as Tony Williams, Jack DeJohnette, Lenny White and others, Heartbeat takes that famous sound and gives it a “sprinkle” of Heartbeat’s modern influence.

The Heartbeat Jazz rides feature unique dark red logos and model designations. Hand crafted and hand hammered in the same way that traditional Turkish cymbals were in the 1960’s and early 70’s, this Jazz ride proves that sometimes the old way of doing things might just still have some benefits over the current mass produced products that flood the markets. Due to the great response to the 22″, Heartbeat released 24″ and 26″ Jazz rides as well.

The response to this series led to the introduction of the Jazz Crash and Hi-hat cymbals as well. Jazz Crashes are initially available in 16″, 17″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ diameters, and hats in 14″, 15″,  16″ and 17″ diameters.

The Jazz Cymbals from Heartbeat and all other Heartbeat cymbals carry a two year limited warranty.
