Saluda's Diamond series is
comprised of very complex and semi-dark toned cymbals. The
series features a traditional, classic finish with fine
lathing and plenty of hand hammering for a beautiful appearance and
shine (the cymbals are not silvery in color; these have a
normal cymbal color).
Like all Saluda cymbal series, these are hand crafted, in fine B20 bronze alloy.
The Diamond series is
geared for those who want their cymbals to be a little
darker, more expressive, responsive, very complex and lively.
These are not dry and they are not overly bright. These are excellent
cymbals for using in many musical genres in which you need
a cymbal for a rock gig but to take the same cymbal to a
jazzy gig the next night (with lighter sticks of course).
Saluda considers this a
'wide open series'. This means you have a very
wide range of selections from thin to extra heavy ( from
brighter to darker) and offered in splashes, crashes,
crash rides, rides, chinas, hi-hats, china splashes, china
crashes, flat ride and gongs (coming soon).
For the classic cymbal
look with plenty of versatility, this is a solid series to
get. In comparison, if you like a more unique finish, try
the Nemesis series. Both the Diamond and Nemesis series
have similar sound qualities.
