Amedia Australia says: The Kommagene series takes it's name from a wealthy civilisation in the Asiaminor region, now lost to plunder and buried beneath thick sand. Kommagene cymbals pay homage to the city's lost and buried history. Dark in colour as well as tone, the Kommagene series cymbals offer a sweet, mellow sound and lengthy sustain. The bell is left unhammered for a dry and resonant quality when struck. Dark and washy, Kommagene cymbals are most at home with jazz players, or anyone looking for a vintage, trashy tone.
