Here below, you can see our available selection of Cymbal & Gong cymbals. Remember that at CymbalONE, it is the excact same cymbal on display in the video that is for sale.
Watch a short introduction to this page.
One of the goals of CymbalONE is to introduce you to some lesser known and far more niche cymbal brands. Cymbal brands that have a clear profile in relation to what they want - and the way they do it.
With Cymbal & Gong, it won't be much more like that.
The man behind the company - Tim Ennis from Portland (USA) - has worked for a number of years with Turkish cymbal makers to achieve exactly the sound he - and a number of high-profile drummers - had been looking for. The hard work is thus carried out in Turkey (casting, hammering and shaping), after which patination processes, final quality control and selection are carried out in the USA.
The result is exceptional. Cymbals with a clear reference to the masterpieces of the past. Cymbals that speak their own distinct language - also figuratively - and where each series has its own clear reference to the past.
The atmospheric patina finish you'll find on the Holy Grail cymbals doesn't just look good, it's an integral part of the cymbal itself; it is the final touch that has been made in order to get that sound out of the cymbals. A dry sound with plenty of stick definition and a strong reference back to the past.
The cymbals are only marked with a paper label at the back and a small stamp on the front. Again - as it was done many years ago.
Holy Grail cymbals come in two variants: Turkish and American style.
This type has a smaller bell, a flatter profile, a lower pitch and a slightly more diffuse sound than the American style Holy Grails. The award-winning jazz cymbal sound from the 1950s and '60s.
The "American" style cymbals has a unique, slightly larger bell, a higher profile and a slightly higher weight - generally a brighter sound than the Turkish Holy Grails.
