To the average person, a cymbal is a cymbal. But as a drummer, you know better - the truth is, cymbals come in a ton of varieties and no two sound exactly the same. In your drum set, they're the spice. And just as it's important to match a spice to a dish, it's important to match the cymbals to the drums and the genre.

So, what makes heavy cymbals different from thin or medium cymbals, and when are they the right ones to use? The short answer is that they're "bigger," and they're a perfect choice when your style and venue are bigger, too. Usually a heavy cymbal is louder than a thinner one, taking more time and energy to produce its resonance and crash. They work excellently in large venues and for loud, forceful music like heavy metal.

You can also mix and match cymbal weights to create a really personalized profile of effects fine-tuned to your individual needs. For instance, jazz drummers will often go for a heavy ride cymbal, even though their other cymbals are thinner. The reason for that is simple enough: jazz tunes tend to rely on the loud, penetrating ride sounds to support the mix while the other cymbals take on roles that need more agility.

In this selection of heavy cymbals, you'll find all the usual names: Sabian, Zildjian, Meinl, Paiste and Istanbul Mehmet are all present and accounted for. The options range from signature cymbals like the Paiste Joey Jordison Alpha Hyper Ride to instruments so unique they stand out even without an endorsement, such as the handcrafted Stagg Black Metal Bell.

If it's power and volume that you're searching for, heavy cymbals will definitely fit the bill. These are the perfect instruments for cutting through and being heard, which makes them great choices for powerful genres as well as to add pronounced accents in more laid-back styles. When you want it loud, use heavy cymbals to make it happen.
