Project 391: A Radically New Sound Expands the Zildjian Tonal Palette

Posted on .

Zildjian’s SoundLab, the company’s proving ground for developing new cymbals, has just introduced the limited edition Project 391—a new series with sounds unlike anything the world’s oldest cymbal maker has produced up to now. Led by Paul Francis, Zildjian’s Director of R&D, the SoundLab team set out to achieve sounds that weren’t a current part of the company’s tonal palette. They’ve unquestionably achieved that aim using a new alloy and manufacturing techniques that deliver what some drummers refer to as a “Euro sound.”

INTRODUCTION

When I reviewed Booty Shakers … I stated: "Trust me, a name you don't want to Google at work or with kids around. But a clever name nonetheless. So I assure you this product isn't the first thing that probably pops into your mind." So, yes, I can assure you that Little Booty Shakers isn't Honey Boo-Boo twerking either!
