Matt Nolan Custom Cymbals At 2011 PASIC

Matt Nolan Custom Cymbals

We checked in with Matt Nolan at his 2011 PASIC booth where he showed off his usual array of imaginative and yet wholly playable custom cymbals and gongs (despite the fact that he was still wrestling with U.S. Customs to receive his final box of bronze shipped from his workshop in England). Nolan showed us new, unlathed 14" hi-hats made of B8 bronze, which feature several design elements that are new to this one-man cymbalsmith.
