We were glad to welcome back to the NAMM Show the revered Italian cymbalsmith UFIP after they had been largely absent from the U.S. market for many years. The company displayed a full complement of its existing cymbal lines, and also introduced the sassy Blast Series. These cymbals feature very faint lathe marks punctuated by deep hammer dimples, which result in a light and lively sound that is perfect for drum ’n’ bass and techno music.
