Silken Cymbals @ 2013 Winter NAMM

Hailing from Wuhan, a Chinese city famous for its bronze work, Silken Cymbals continued to expand its range of models available in the U.S. at the 2013 Winter NAMM Show. This year they’ve expanded the Avus range with a new 20" Dark Ride and 18" Solid Crash, as well as the very trashy and complex Trois China cymbal – all made from B20 bronze. This is only the latest step in an ongoing trend of Chinese companies making cymbals that appeal more to Western ears.
