I have to say, hats off to the metalworkers at Zildjian’s factories. The 9-to-5ers who churn out the company’s Spiral Stacker FX series of cymbals. As you watch our report from NAMM 2015, perhaps you’ll squeal like we did when Paul Francis, Zildjian’s Director of Research and Development, gave the Spiral Stacker just the lightest tap. I really thought every layer was going to pop right off!
Boy was I happy to be proven wrong. Keep it up boys. Check out our interview with Mr. Francis, in which he runs down Zildjian’s new products for 2015, including those special slinky cymbals, their new FX Oriental Crash, the Zil-Bel, and the updated Constantinople Renaissance and K Custom Organic Ride cymbals.
