Dark, Controlled, and Naturally Clear for a Totally Unique Cymbal Presence.

With the dark, striking look of an Ottoman shield, and a sound that combines deep subtlety and controlled bombast, Ad Astra Series are the creation of Turkish drummer and cymbal designer, Özgür Can Öney. These lighweight cymbals feature an oven-charred, unlathed surface in striking contrast to their enlarged, lathed, polished bells. This unique combination delivers a controlled, clean response live and in the studio. Great for Rock, Funk, Fusion and other Progressive Styles.
