Cymbals are not the sort of instrument that seems complicated at first glance, but for all their simplicity on the surface, the truth is that they're surprisingly complex. Every subtle detail about the shape and craftsmanship of a cymbal will have a noticeable effect on the way it sounds, and one of the most important aspects is thickness. In this lineup of medium thin cymbals, you'll find instruments that are a bit lighter than the benchmark, but still weighty enough to pack a decent amount of power.

There's an incredibly long history behind the cymbal, and the techniques used to make them are always moving forward. One of the best ways to make an amazing-sounding cymbal is to figure out where to combine old-fashioned and modern principles of craftsmanship, which is something that you'll see in a number of cymbals here. Take the Meinl Byzance Vintage series for instance; these cymbals use modern-day shaping techniques with old-school rough finishing, leaving a raw surface that produces dry, dark and trashy tones perfect for jazz, funk, fusion and pop. You could also take a look at Istanbul Agop: they're one of the oldest cymbal makers in the business, and their manufacturing process borrows a lot from their past generations.

One of the advantages of medium thin cymbals is tighter control and quicker response than thicker ones, which is something that comes out especially in instruments like the Sabian XS20 dB CONTROL Crash Cymbal. This is an cymbal that's right at home in the studio, with bright sound, instant response, tight sustain and all the tone you could ask for. When you want that added dose of precision, cymbals like these will deliver.

Whether it's control you're looking for, or just a slightly more subtle sound than your run-of-the-mill medium cymbal, you'll find it with a medium thin model. These cymbals deliver a great balance of precision and power that makes them great candidates for all but the heaviest musical genres and playing styles.
