Stainless Steel

Prepare yourself for a completely unique cymbal experience! Mike Mongiello is one of only a handful of people in the world making professional-quality stainless steel cymbals, forging them completely by hand from bell to bow. These thin, wobbly creations are dynamic and expressive. Characterized by sharp sticking and a mysterious, almost "digital" wash with many colorful overtones, they are musical in all sizes, but particularly exceptional in larger formats. These instruments are suitable for low to medium-loud volumes and perform well in a wide range of styles from jazz to light rock, EDM, funk, blues, hip hop, country, experimental music and more.

Mike can create stainless steel cymbals in any size, weight and shape you desire, and he is available to be commissioned for custom work. Please email for details.
