The Matt Halpern Signature Double Down Crash-Ride is a versatile and dynamic, hand hammered cymbal which fully functions as both a ride and crash when needed. Plus, it features a powerful and cutting bell to punch through a full band mix. Because this cymbal opens so easily, it is a fantastic choice for crash-riding and big single crash accents. The combination of the dark, unlathed top and lathed bottom creates a unique blend of sustain and control. Additionally, some light sandblasting on top reduces the overtones for a decay that quickly gets out of the way.

“I needed this cymbal to be extremely dynamic in that it was loud enough to pierce through the intensity of Periphery’s sound, but also decay quick enough to not overpower the vocals or other instruments while performing live. I’ve used it in live shows, multiple sized studio rooms, and different genres, and I can confidently say, it does exactly what I hoped for in each of those settings.” – Matt Halpern
With the Mapex Falcon Series Quick Release Nut you can remove your cymbals from a stand in a second, without any twisting (and losing) of traditional wingnuts!
By holding in the large side button you can simply slide the quick release nut over the top of a cymbal stand. When you release the button, it clamps down on the stand. You can then lock it firmly in place with a locking switch!
