WELCOME TO CYMBAL SOUNDS OF THE MASTERS

This educational video series will trace the cymbal selections of the great drummers from Gene, Max, Philly and Elvin, up to the present day with drummers such as Steve Gadd, Terri Lyne Carrington, Eric Harland, Bill Stewart, among many others. Throughout this evolution, you will find that the music drove the sound, and it still does.

Each episode will include a discussion of the music, sound, and process that went into making the choice come alive.

Join us as we take you on a cymbal sound journey that will honor the past, shape the present, and imagine the future.
