This series is made out of stacks. Meaning, combinations of 2 or 3 cymbals stacked on each other.
Whether stack cymbals are just a current trend I like the idea of combining the two cymbals and getting a completely new sound by yourself.
There are two big questions behind this. The first one is about the price.
We all struggle to form a basic set of cymbals that contains high-quality cymbals. Do we have money to make just one stack out of 2 cymbals?
It took me 15 years to form a set out of premium class cymbals like K Custom or HHX only.
With all the additional costs like drum sticks, heads, electronics, and other drum gear. It is very expensive to purchase 2 cymbals and a stand to get a cool sound.
The other question is whether or not these are new models or just a combination of existing ones.
For example, Thomas Lank stack is made out of 18″ Classics Custom China and 18″ Classics Custom O-zone (FX crash) but named differently like “Super Stack Top” and “Super Stack Bottom”.
If you ask me, I think there is nothing new here. However, I would love to play some of these stacks especially Matt Garstka Fat Stack.
