ever since we've developed and introduced our range of symphonic cymbals about one year ago together with jens herz, principal percussionist of the bamberg symphony orchestra, i have learned so much new about the requirements a classical percussionist is looking for in terms of cymbal sounds.

some time ago i was introduced to guido margrrander, percussionist of the bavarian radio symphony orchestra. i gave him a selection of our symphonic cymbals for testing. apparently the 22" heavy cymbal pair has been chosen to be used at their yesterday's concert at the herkulessaal in munich. i had the great pleasure to experience this amazing concert, gustav mahler's first symphony "titan" played by one of the world's leading orchestras.

i'm excited to have the opportunity to keep on working more in the classical szene in the future in terms of cymbal sounds. besides all the music i grew up with, i have always loved classical music and have listened to it all the time. i find it very fascinating now to also sneak into that world more and more working with classical musicians in terms of the sounds they are looking for. i love it!
