  • Here’s one of the rarest cymbals I’ve ever owned - I’ve not seen another.  As many a Cymbalholic knows, HAMMERAX was a custom cymbal maker long before the custom cymbal thing blossomed.  

  • Unfortunately they have gone the way of the dodo, but not before claiming their thrown in the pantheon of cymbalsmiths.  

  • They made several different series but all of them custom and unique - and that’s what they were famous for then and that’s exactly what they’re famous for NOW! 

  • They’re very hard to find because collectors have locked them up because there’s nothing like them out there.  

  • Hammerax ULTRA VIOLET 18 Bright Crash. As you can see the top of this 18” is a Brilliant Finish while the underside has a factory blackened treatment.  There’s nothing like this cymbal - the top has a very smooth, rippled contour that is unlike anything else you will see. 

  • The end result is a semi-dark sounding crash that has a glorious shimmer over the top - however it also has this controlled, pre-eq-ed tone to it.  It’s clean and controlled but simultaneously FULL sounding.  

  • This is an absolutely terrific crash cymbal for a studio - it’s full and yet still very clean sounding, producer-loving tone.  

  • Of course it’s fantastic for live too - it has no problem cutting at 1497 grams however it has a softness to it.  It’s not clanky or harsh.  The edges have a softness to it. 

  • Very good condition. Light wear on the underside and edge.  Nothing that affects a the tone or longevity.  

  • Sounds incredible.  Have a listen.  One of the most rare cymbals.  Very collectible.
