“I love my Captain Series cymbals. They are great for the road and record beautifully in the studio. You don't have to hold back in your playing because the volume and projection are perfect for smaller venues but can open up tremendously when you give it some muscle! Absolutely amazing! It’s everything I've been looking for in cymbals, thank you guys!"
