Sabian has introduced a set of five conically-shaped micro-splashes, sized in quarter-inch increments from 4.75″ to 5.75″ called the Tollspire Chimes. Crafted from Sabian B20 Bronze, they are rolled and tempered from splash-thickness blanks, then formed into a cupless, conical shape. Sabian says the result is: ‘…a compelling combination of chime, bell and splash, offering melodic sounds that will appeal to a super-wide range of players – from prog rock to drum-corp and marching.
‘Although they are not tuned to specific notes, they provide superb melodic movement utilising differences in pitch and size. Additionally, their distinct white noise factor – a function of the conical shape – provides a warm “church bells in the distance” effect. As a result, drummers and percussionists seeking a unique set of melodic chimes or micro splashes should consider adding Tollspire Chimes to their set-up. They are guaranteed to inspire creativity in drummers from virtually any genre’.
Sabian Tollspire Chimes include a mini-tree mount with universal multi-clamp to fit most common cymbal and percussion stands.
