Whipcrash® features an S-Shaped array of MICROCUPS, which can be raked for one-handed rolls. By starting out at the tip of your stick and raking back and forth, then moving gradually to the shank, the sound deepens and increases in loudness. The 18", 21" and 24" feature 10 microcups. The 24" Whipcrash® Ultra features a total of 36 microcups to make one handed raking easy from any angle and increase volume. Most loud cymbals achieve volume by focusing on one range of sounds — usually highs. Whipcrash® spreads the volume over a wider range. Whipcrash® cymbals can reach extreme loudness but also shimmering color. Hammerax uses an especially strong bronze alloy that, when combined with unique hammering techniques, yields an extreme range of sonic colors and volumes from a mellow roar to a screaming wall of sound. Removable sizzles are included with each cymbal. Whipcrash® also sounds even richer when heard at distances of 15 to 30 feet. Whipcrash® leans toward the dark spectrum but has beautiful mids. The 24" is deeply dark and can function as a true crash or a crashride. The center cup on Whipcrash® is dark and integrated rather than being a bright bell sound. These microcups are not attached sizzles but true miniature cups which are forged in the cymbal. Whipcrash® brand cymbals are now stronger than ever due to the installation of a new hammer system at Hammerax, which can refine metallic grain and add flexibility through hammering. They are hammered thousands of times and are made of a special alloy heat treated in a unique process. They show excellent crash durability and superior crack resistance. This also helps create some of loudest sounds on the market. " These are the loudest cymbals we have heard," says John Stannard, Hammerax president. "We collect hundreds of loud cymbals from many sources and nothing compares in terms of total blast of crash sound. They are especially rich and loud in the dark and middle spectrum. We recently measured the 24" Whipcrash® Ultra at 119 db. That is very loud, but Whipcrash® sounds absolutely stunning when combined with bright cymbals. The total wall of sound is impressive." Hammerax center cups are now forged completely through HAMMERING. No pressing is involved. There is a beautiful matrix of sound dents in the center cup. 4 year Limited Warranty. Patents Pending.
