公司简介


According to Hugo Pinksterboer in his <<The Cymbal Book>>, China is often regarded as the first country where cymbals were manufactured ,dating back thousands of years ago.
WUHAN ,CHINA  has established itself as a capital well known for producing high quality cymbals and gongs since 1700’s.  
The cymbal-making process is a dramatic one that employs ancient techniques from 1700’s.
The elements of the traditional cymbal-bronze alloy (copper and tin) is melted at around 1100-1200C, then it is poured into casting iron moulds,when it cooling,these discs are taken off from moulds.
 
These discs are heated into red-hot discs,and forged by our smiths into flat blank.  Rolling mills are fed these red-hot blank in next step until they achieve their desired thickness.
Then they are reheat and being cut into a circle, pressed cup, and tempering.
 The newly emerging cymbals are placed on a steel anvil, and hammered by our smiths.The different tone are created in this way.
The final step is lathing. These cymbals are attached on a spinning lathe.One lathe man removes a thin layer of cymbal’s top side with a long steel knife,creating the tonal grooves,then sends it to a second lathe man who repeats the process on the bottom side of the cymbals 
      SILKEN cymbal found  in 2005. As musical styles and tastes are continually evolving, so is the art of cymbal making.
 Our innovation has resulted in an unprecedented level of choice from the most diverse offering of cymbal design ever available which are described as “dark” or “bright,” “crisp” or “mellow,” “sweet” or “fierce”… “fast”… “clean”… “pure”… “rough”….the list goes on.
SILKEN cymbals have been proved as finest genuine CHINA handcrafted cymbals.
