OVERVIEW

A signature stack for choppy accents, designed by Matt Garstka.

The Artist Concept Models are a collection of cymbal voices. They are the product of Meinl Cymbal Artists and the Meinl R&D team. The goal was to craft unique and innovative sounds that allowed the artist to explore, create and forge ahead as leaders in acoustic music and in the art of drumming.

"This stack cuts through the mix with a crunchy bite. With no ring, the sustain is dry and pleasing to the ear. Its trashy quality is maintained through a wide variety of tensions, with my personal favorite being a light tension that gives its Fat Stack namesake. It functions in my setup mainly as a time keeper, but it also works extremely well with choppy accents. Coupled with a snare it has a great organic hip hop clap sound." - Matt Garstka.

To produce the intense sound from the signature Fat Stack, the cymbals included are a specially made 18” Byzance Dark Crash with holes (top) featuring a sandblasted under side. The bottom cymbal is a 16” Byzance Dark china with holes and a traditional under side. Place the crash over the china (not inverted) to get the signature Matt Garstka sound.
