Cymbal Characteristics: Mid-Bright Timbre, Trashiness, Mellow, High-Mid Pitch, Low Volume, Short Sustain, Thin Weight, B20/B8 Bronze. "Is it a shaker? A programmed & pitched hihat sample? Is it a crasher percussion effect? No, it's the Crasher Hats. I wanted something that was super short, dry, clear and high in frequency but still very dynamic that could fulfill a whispering shaker-like role in the music. Tough to get! So we had to create something completely unique. Four separate cymbals sandwiched together. They have different shoulders so they collapse against each other at every hit. The result is incredible. A very unique sound that blends beautifully with ghost notes and other subdivisions, but can also make a very percussive statement. Always sounds perfect without any unwanted noise or sustaining ring. You can hear it on all my recent recordings and it has become part of my sound. Check it out. It's such a useful instrument. I absolutely love it." -Benny Greb
