Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Ital­ian cym­bal­smith­sUFIP are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar as word of their ex­cel­lent pies spreads, in no small part down to a re­cent al­liance withUK dis­trib­u­torTheMu­sicShip­pingCom­pany.In ad­di­tion to their stan­dard ranges comes a neat col­lec­tion of FX cym­bals for drum­mers seek­ing less tra­di­tional sounds.The 12" Samba splash is a cute ro­to­cast B20 bronze cym­bal ideal for Latin mu­sic.At the other end of the spec­trum is the B20 bronze 18" Blast crash that’s more suited to quick, loud ac­cents.The 20" Flat ride is per­fect for drum­mers need­ing a dry and clear sound with a con­trolled re­sponse, while the Xim­bau is the most unique of the lot, fea­tur­ing a tri­an­gu­lar quar­ter plate cym­bal fit­ted with jin­gles for short de­cay, white noise-style ef­fects.
