I simply can’t do without it anymore: the Artist Concept Model Crasher Hats.
Is it a shaker? A programmed & pitched hi-hat sample? Is it a crasher percussion effect? – No, it’s the Crasher Hats. I wanted something that was super short, dry, clear and high in frequency but still so dynamic it could fulfill a whispering shaker-like role in the music. Not an easy thing to achieve! Therefore, we had to create something completely unique: four separate cymbals sandwiched together. They have different shoulders so they crash against each other at every hit. The result is incredible. A very unique sound blending beautifully with ghost notes and other subdivisions, but also able to provide a very percussive statement. Always sounds perfect without any unwanted noise or sustaining ring. You can hear it on all my recent recordings, and it has become a definitive part of my sound. Check it out. It's an incredibly useful instrument. I absolutely love it.
