A pair of Zildjian factory-matched 20″ Germanic Symphonic hand (crash) cymbals

These cymbals are pitch-matched at the Zildjian factory.  They have a bright, clear sound, sufficient to cut through strong ensemble playing, yet with a rhythmically sharp ‘splash’ at low dynamic levels.

Both timpani have gauges attached to the side of the bowl, with clear, easy-to-read letters for pitch guidance even in very low lighting. Included in...
