About This Listing

Genesis By Maxwell 18" Crash/Ride Cymbal - 1307g. This was a heavy 60's A Zildjian that was reworked by cymbalsmith Steve Maxwell Jr. in our Chicagoland location. This 60's A had weight was taken off by lathing the top and the bottom of the cymbal and transforming what was a clunky old A into a washier medium light crash-ride great for a variety of musical situations. New hammering throughout, including some hammering on the bell. Check out the sound file!
Steve Jr does the actual lathing. We work on the top side, the underside, and the bell. We can work on all of these areas, or only some of them. We can fully lathe the cymbal, or only partially lathe it. The degree to which we thin the cymbal varies based on what the characteristics of the cymbal are, and what the owner wants to accomplish. We thin the cymbal by lathing to remove metal gradually. We test it in between lathings to get a general sense for thickness, but we wait 24 hours before testing for sound. Reason: the cymbal metal needs to settle after it has been lathed. So, trying the cymbal immediately after lathing will produce a different sound and feel than what you will ultimately get from the lathing after the metal has settled. After 24 hours we test it and if more work is desired we can trim more metal. We can also use a special tool to impact the "wobble" (which impacts the sound an playability) without trimming any more metal. We then let it set for another 24 hours and test again. For cymbal that we lathe for our stock, these are worked on by Steve Jr and then are given to me for the final stamp of approval before they go into inventory.
