This book has opened my eyes to a whole new world. Not only do I now properly know how to pick the right cymbal, I've even learnt about the things that most people would often neglect on their own.... thanks to this book, I no longer walk into music stores and just hit random cymbals in hope for that right sound...
Anyone who is looking to really learn about cymbals, their history, their production process, their uses, and even how many greats place them! is going to get a good heavy dose of information from this book.
desperately needs to be revised and updated. If you can overlook that glaring omission, I highly reccommend this book.
This book is not only the perfect gift for the drummer, but the first gift one should get. It obviously is not well known as my friend, Mike, a registered cymbal freak had not heard of it. Definite buy! You will love it.
Hugo definitely didn't go to school for journalism (as some reviewers seem to think is most important), but that doesn't mean this book isn't readable. There is a lot of good information packed in here and there are few books out there that will give you this amount of information. I just wish it came in a smaller book form, but this book will fit nicely with all your drum instruction books if you have some.
If you do not find this review helpful, please comment as to why. Thank you!
