Work is now well underway on our new cymbal vault! This self contained area of our Nottingham Drum shop will house a great selection of cymbals to suit all budgets from beginner to professional. Stocked by major brands such as Sabian, Paiste, and Zildjian, the vault will be the go to place for drummers in the east midlands.
Newly shop fitted with the latest illuminated displays, the vault will be both eye catching and accessible, and as always our friendly sales team will be on hand to offer expert advice for anyone looking to choose cymbals.
For beginning and intermediate drummers, the vault will offer a great selection of the popular and affordable Paiste PST3
and PST5 cymbals
, as well as the best selling Zildjian S Series
, available in both box sets and as individual cymbals. New drummers can take advantage of our sales teams experience and be guided into selecting the right cymbals.
We are also happy to announce that we are now a main dealer for Sabian Cymbals once again! Concentrating on a couple of ranges, mainly the best selling AAX and XSR cymbal series
, we have a huge selection of these Canadian made cymbals. The XSR series in particular offer incredible value for money and a wide range of tones. Check out the XSR Monarch series for a vintage look and sound. For drummers looking for a bright, modern sound, our range of Sabian AAX cymbals
will really fit the bill, from the highly acclaimed AAXplosion series crash cymbals, to a wide selection of rides, hats and effects cymbals.
Another new line for us is the addition of the legendary Paiste 2002 Cymbals
, including the retro styled Paiste 2002 Black Label Big Beat
models... ideal for drummers looking for that 60s and 70s rock vibe! Think John Bonham, Keith Moon, Ian Paice, Cozy Powell... legendary drummers whose sound was characterised by these iconic cymbals.... as well as modern greats such as Stewart Copeland, Dave Lombardo, Charlie Benante, Joey Castillo, Nicko McBrain...the list goes on... cutting edge rock and metal drummers who rely on Paiste 2002 cymbals. In our opinion, within drumming circles no other cymbal has had such a massive impact on popular music. Our Big Beat crashes feature larger sizes, 18" 19" 20"" etc, great for drummers looking for that explosive classic rock crash sound with all the volume you need to cut through a wall of guitar amps.
Once Paiste developed their famous CuSn8 bronze and began manufacturing 2002 series cymbals in their factory in Switzerland, top drummers around the globe jumped on board and began playing these incredible cymbals....Now available in Nottingham!!
However, Paiste 2002 cymbals are not just for the rich and famous! We have a huge selection of these cymbals at discounted prices. In addition, as always we'll have a great display of Paiste 900 Series cymbals
...big explosive crashes ideally suited for the heavy hitters amongst you, and the affordable yet professional Paiste PST7 series
Paiste Cymbals are continuing their proud heritage thanks to attracting a new breed of innovative drummers such as Craig Blundell and they continue to push the boundaries of cymbal development.
And of course, no cymbal vault worth its salt would be complete without some Zildjian Cymbals.... with a model to suit every musical style from jazz to metal, we have great stocks of these American made cymbals at discount prices. Zildjian A Custom Cymbals
offer fresh, modern sounds for todays music and are our best selling Zildjian line. If you like your cymbals a bit darker with complex overtones, check out the Zildjian K Series
, possibly the most widely used cymbals for jazz and blues. As mentioned earlier, the arrival of the Zildjian S Series cymbals brought Zildjian quality to a wider audience thanks to its more affordable price point. The S Series offers a wide range of cymbal types, sizes and weights so theres a cymbal to suit every drummer regardless of musical style.... thin crashes, rock crashes.... we've got them all!
