I think Soultone Cymbals differ very favourably to other brands in that they offer a unique and individual voice with each cymbal. That voice being highly musical also also very expressive. From my experience with Soultone Cymbals I have found they offer me, as a musician, a means of strong emotional expression with a wide versatility of both sonic colour and sound. From this beautiful sound palette I find there is a perfect connection between my inner self and the sounds i create as a drum set musician. I have struggle to find this attention to detail lacking in other brands. I believe that drummers seeking an alternative to the mainstream brands should try Soultone Cymbals as they offer handmade Turkish cymbals that express individuality and an original sonic voice found in only the very best cymbal makers.
Soultone have given me a platform that I can get the very best cymbals with great customer support and friendly service. They care about the individual and are happy to support artists of all levels.
