The only place to buy cymbals online for your acoustic drum kit is Sky Music’s Cymbal Vault. We’ve set you up for success with filters that will narrow down your search by allowing you to choose the brands you want, the size of the cymbals and a sliding price scale.
If you’re a beginner or bedroom basher brushing up before exams or live performances, but are worried about disturbing your neighbours, we recommend picking up a practice kit of cymbals online. The Maxtone Stainless Steel Low Volume Practice Cymbal Set includes five pieces that offer greatly reduced noise with the same feel and sound of real symbols. For cymbals that deliver on stage and in the studio, check out the Zildjian K Sweet Cymbal Pack: it covers all the essentials and is ideal for any genre, from jazz and progressive rock to R&B and metal.
Putting together a drum kit from scratch, or updating a current kit is an opportunity to explore different sounds with new drum cymbals. Unless it’s a bedroom-bashing option for practicing, we recommend picking up protective cases so they stay in pristine condition.
For a fast, colorful, short crash sound, pick a Splash from Zildjian, or a highly responsive model from Sabian. Zildjian is also responsible for some of the most exuberant HiHat symbols in our collection: they burst with a classic sound that is bright and expressive. To accent your drumming pattern, you’ll need a loud, explosive crash cymbal. A ride cymbal is ideal for playing steady patterns, and its shimmering, sustaining sound can be changed up depending on where you hit. A china cymbal is recognisable by its upturned edge and has an explosive, crash-like tone and high, thin, trebly timbre.
The range of drum cymbals in our vault have been chosen from some of the best manufacturers in the world, and ones that are favoured by the greatest drummers on earth. Our selection includes high-quality products from the following:
Whenever you’re practicing the drums, and cymbals are involved, the smart drummer will consider ear protection. We’ve got a comprehensive range of earplugs and over-ear headphones for adults and kids too, so little ones get into good habits sooner. After all, as a musician, there’s nothing more important than hearing.
When you choose the drum cymbals that will capture the best sound for your playing and live performances, and your order totals more than $100, you might score free shipping within Australia. Check in with our friendly team to see if you qualify.
It’s rare but it happens: sometimes things get damaged in transit. If your cymbals don’t arrive on your doorstep in pristine condition, let us know as soon as possible. We’ll work out a solution, whether that’s a refund, credit note or replacement so you can get playing sooner.
