Satellite Flat bells

Satellite Flat bells

Size: 9, 10, 11

The Satellites are essentially flat
hammered discs. They can be thought
of as mini-flat rides, flat bells, or flat
splashes. Being they are fully hammered,
their quality is dark; however, because of
their diameter of 9” 10”, and 11” more
overtones can be exposed. Depending
on technique, these small cymbals have
multiple sonic possibilities. If played with
fingers a very identifiable tone is produced,
similar to a quiet bell. This effect can
be produced as well playing softly with
mallets. Contrastingly, if the cymbal is
struck hard there is minimal sustain which
creates a choked splash effect. Played
lightly with sticks the sound quality is
acutely articulate, very compatible in
combination with 20” Atacama Flat Ride.
