Tony Williams Signature Series
1 x TW-HH14 - 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals Simply a stunningly beautiful pair of old Turkish made HiHats. The top and bottom cymbal are perfectly nested from a lifetime of playing. The chick is gorgeous, the stick sound...sublime. But the cymbal masters at Istanbul Mehmet were not to be daunted and the replica HiHats were, in fact, the first of the models to be approved.
1 x TW-C18 - 18" Crash Cymbal Just slightly larger than 18", the Crash has a crack in the body and a smaller crack at the edge. Mysteriously, however, there is no discernible buzz or noise from these cracks. The crack in the body does, however, act as an in-built 'attenuator' accelerating the decay of the crash. These sonic characteristics have been replicated through a careful combination of additional hammering and specific lathing.
1 x TW-R22 - 22" Ride Cymbal The most celebrated Ride cymbal in history? Undoubtedly. Long regarded as the epitome of the ideal old Turkish cymbal Ride sound. Used by Tony on all the Quintet recordings up to 'Sorcerer', after which it was forced in to retirement due to increasing fragility, this magnificent cymbal now bears the scars of the most intense Ride cymbal playing in history.
