Played by hand or with sticks. Great dynamic range. Quick response to the lightest touch. Opens up for full crash sound. Add a three rivet cluster for a great sizzle effect.
The Azuka Latin Multi-Crash Hand & Stick was the first cymbal to be designed to be played with the hand, providing conga and bongo players with cymbal sound colors for the first time.
Zildjian teamed up with Alex Acuna to create the Azuka cymbal line especially made for Latin Percussionists. "When I add percussion to my drumset, I often play congas and bongos with my left hand and the rest of the kit with a stick in my right. For years, I wanted to be able to play a cymbal with my left hand. Then I thought, a cymbal that you could play with your left hand would open up a whole new world of sound for all Latin Percussionists."
