The Indigo 16” Crash is lush, rich and beautifully balanced for a medium dark, sweeping crash sound.
The HAMMERAX Indigo® 16” Crash Cymbal is part of a family of cymbals described as dark, lush and rich. The 16” Crash is beautifully balanced for a medium dark, sweeping crash sound. After initial casting and rolling, Indigo metal is shaped and forged totally by hammering and will stand out visually as much as for its distinctive sound.
The Indigo®16” Crash 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 accent musical arrangements, to “spice up” solos, to simulate the sounds heard on popular recordings that have been synthesized in the studio and also to add new sounds to the drummer’s and percussionist’s toolkit.
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.
