B8 Pro Craftsmanship

Like our high-end B20 lines, B8 Pro cymbals benefit from hand-guided hammering, using a peen hand-shaped in the Vault. Hand-polished to a stunning brilliant finish, they are individually tested before receiving a final stamp of approval.

  • Hand-guided machine hammering is used to add musicality, complexity, and bright tone
  • Lathe craftsmen operate specially retrofitted lathes, thinning cymbal to desired gauge while adding crucial tonal grooves
  • Cymbal must be trimmed to exact size and the edges buffed for smoothness
  • B8 Pro cymbals are hand-buffed to a stunning brilliant finish
  • Each individual cymbal is hand-tested and hand-weighed in the Vault by Vault sound specialists, a critical process
  • Each individual cymbal is placed on a shelf to age, allowing the frantically active molecules to slow down and stabilize
  • Each individual cymbal is once again hand-tested by two Vault specialists to ensure they fit the parameters of the series and model
