The HAMMERAX Indigo® 21" FlatRide Cymbal is a shallow ride cymbal with small “microcups” in the center that give an airy bell tone and other sounds along with an exotic ride cymbal groove. A totally hand-hammered musical work of art!
The HAMMERAX Indigo® 21” Flatride Cymbal is part of a family of cymbals described as dark, lush and rich. The Indigo Flatrides feature numerous “micro-cups” hammered into the center area of the cymbal that impart several qualities: they increase the richness of the cymbal providing excellent stick definition. The micro-cups also are “rake-able”, allowing various effects including a one-handed roll effect.
The Flatrides have a beautiful dark stick response with no dead spot in the center, which is common in other flat ride cymbals. The innovation of micro-cups eliminates the dead spot and allows for a broader range of dynamics and tones. The 21” Flatride has a big, bright and rich sound with plenty of good stick definition.
After initial casting and rolling, HAMMERAX Indigo metal is shaped and forged totally by hammering and will stand out visually as much as for its distinctive sound. The innovative hammering process, very careful heat treatment and a unique alloy results in great tonal beauty.
The Indigo® 21” Flatride Cymbal and other percussion effects made by Hammerax have become popular and widely-used by drummers and percussionists as additional sounds and textures used to create a unique and exotic ride cymbal groove, to accent musical arrangements and to add new sounds to the drummer’s and percussionist’s toolkit. The HAMMERAX Indigo® Flatride Cymbal is also available from Sam Ash Direct in the deeper and darker 24” size.
After years building musical instruments and founding Om Percussion, well known for their bar chimes, in 1993 John Stannard began hammering bronze. On the island of Bali he studied forging in the fire pits. The education was more spiritual than intellectual. In 2006, a lifetime of listening, followed by a long and focused research period paid off. A small studio of cymbalsmiths headed by Stannard, unveiled a new line of hand hammered stick-playable hybrid instruments to a rave response. Cymbals, Bells, FX and Gongs soon followed.
Hammerax® has filed dozens of trademarks, patents, and copyrights on their works and brands. Their bronze alloys are all cast, rolled and hand hammered in a proprietary process. "Investment in a Hammerax brand instrument means the acquisition of an individual work of art, signed by the artist. They are consistently beautiful in sound and look, but they vary ever so slightly to give each one its own voice. When you buy one, know that there will never be another exactly like it." says Stannard. "Our mission is to shake up ears with the true innovation." All Hammerax products are 100% made in USA and a protected with a 4 year warranty!
