There’s lots of variety offered by Soultone Cymbals, definitely not a “one size fits all” approach.
As a recording artist, the objective is to frame my playing around each song being tracked.
Soultone Cymbals have become an integral part of that process; of developing my sound to complement every recording project from initial tracking to the final mix.

The thing I love most about Soultone Cymbals is the sound!!
Knowing I can count on each cymbal for the vibe I’m trying to create makes all the difference in the studio and in live performances.
Also, what makes Soultone special is the consistency in each type of cymbal; the crashes cut through the mix, the hi hats are bold and articulate, and the rides are warm.
And if you listen to my playing, you understand my affinity for China cymbals ha ha!! Soultone Extreme Chinas are a big part of my drumming.
If you’re a drummer reading this, give this a try: record yourself using a Soultone cymbal in the studio or in a live situation and listen back to the mix.
What you should hear is your cymbal fitting into that overall mix, not jumping out and not getting buried.
That’s the magic of Soultone Cymbals.

Soultone Cymbals has helped me become a better drummer by inspiring me to focus more on the cymbals in my playing.
Having cymbals with great tones motivates me to incorporate them into each song to enhance the overall listening experience.
But more than anything, Soultone Cymbals has helped my career as a professional drummer.
This is the unspoken value of Soultone Cymbals that most drummers haven’t recognized...yet.
Soultone Cymbals is the most artist-friendly cymbal company in the industry.
I can count on Soultone to share my social media posts and feature me on their page regularly.
They’ve invited me into their studio to film videos, which have been featured on their social media and on their website.
That kind of cross promotion is invaluable for an artist.
Are cymbals from other companies less expensive? Maybe.
Will those other companies share your photos and videos on social media? Probably not.
Will those other companies invite you into their studio and film you to post on their social media? Doubtful.

I’m grateful - it’s really been a friendship more than anything, with lots of mutual respect, support and encouragement.
The Artist Relations / Endorsement relationship is a two way street.
I believe it’s the artist’s responsibility to help the companies they endorse sell more products as a result of being on their roster.
Otherwise, why be on their roster in the first place?
Soultone Cymbals Artist Relations treats me like family.
