The Hammerax Whipcrash

Cymbal maker (or rather “sound maker”) Hammerax produces some way creative instruments—the Boomywang, the Dustbowl, and the Meanie, just to name a few. The latest member of the funky family is the Whipcrash, a heavy crash cymbal branded with an “S-shaped array of hammered microcups” that can be raked with a stick for various sound effects. You can check out how it and Hammerax’s other products sound here [2022 update: alas, Hammerax’s site is down or kaput].

You just know Terry Bozzio is creaming his jeans over these things….Wonder when that Sabian endorsement is up?….
