Rhythm - - COMPETITION -

For this month’s Rhythm com­pe­ti­tion we’re of­fer­ing one lucky reader the op­por­tu­nity to boost their cym­bal set-up with some unique and bold new sounds. The prize comes courtesy of UFIP, a com­pany with 86 years of cym­bal-mak­ing pedi­gree.

For starters we have the mini China-style 12" Samba splash, de­signed for Latin but with enough mus­cle to cut through heav­ier styles too. The ex­ten­sively ham­mered 18" Blast crash de­liv­ers fast, ex­plo­sive ac­cents, while the 20" Flat ride is a sweet sound­ing cym­bal with bags of stick def­i­ni­tion, plus enough wash to work as a tasty crash/ride. Fi­nally, we have the quirky Xim­bao FX, a unique in­stru­ment that started life as a 16" cym­bal be­fore be­ing cut into this pizza-slice shape and pep­pered with over-sized riv­ets and wash­ers top and bot­tom. The re­sult is a sharp, ag­gres­sive ef­fect that sounds a lot like an elec­tronic hi-hat. To­gether this Tus­can-made quar­tet make a for­mi­da­ble col­lec­tion of left­field cym­bals that would freshen up any drum­mer’s sound.
