AGEAN LOW VOLUME CYMBALS VS OTHERS
There are a number of cymbal brands offering low volume cymbals to help you both make music and drum practice in any situation requiring low volume especially for those who live in flats and in the places where their neighbors are so close to them. If you want to practice only, yes many of the available low volume stuff would work fine but if you also look for musicality then you need to make a better search before buying. Agean is the first and only cymbal manufacturer making their cymbals from traditional B.20 bronze and they are all handcrafted while others are mostly press made cymbals, not hammered and lathed as well as not being from B.20 bronze but steel or nickel. As just told you, if the matter is only about practicing then practice pads would make sense too but musicality is something else. If you really want to make music and want to be satisfied with what you would hear then Agean R series cymbals including Agean Regular R, Agean Natural R and the lastest range Agean Flat R would be the best options for you. You can also play R series cymbals in your flats, little gigs, churches and other other place where you are supposed to make lower volume. A final reminder is that Agean R series cymbals have no difference between regular sounding cymbals except for providing less volume. The same quality and the same craftsmenship. Only difference is the holes and less volume. There are numereous comparison videos of Agean R cymbals with the other low volume cymbals. You had better check em out before making a decision!
