Matt Nolan treats his Cymbals like works of art. Each piece has a lot of time invested in it in order to create an instrument that is as beautiful looking as it sounds. He makes rides, crashes, hi-hats, orchestral and other cymbals, plus things like cup chimes, cocktail kit cymbals and more out-of-the-ordinary creations. Unlike the large manufacturers, he actually hand hammers the cups into his cymbals. There is no automatic pressing machine involved.
