Where are you located? Trinity Cymbals headquarters is located in Weaverville, California.

Where are your cymbals made? Our cymbals are made in China, in the same region where cymbals were invented 1,000 years ago.

Are Turkish cymbals better? We decided to partner with our factory in China above all others in the world because they make the best cymbals, period. Turkish cymbals have a great reputation but they have poor quality control. Many cymbals have to be rejected, especially today with so many cymbals being made as quickly as possible. Our factory has the best quality and best consistency. 

Why are your cymbals made in China? Unlike other products that are outsourced to China, cymbals have always been made in China. Our factory is located in the same region where cymbals were invented. They are the world experts in this type of bronze work. In fact, the ancestors of our cymbalsmiths taught them how to make cymbals in Turkey. The technology traveled from China to Turkey in the 16th-17th centuries. We do believe in employing USA workers and are working to open a USA foundry.

What about the big brands? The big four cymbal companies (Zildjian, Sabian, Meinl, Paiste) each make up to a million cymbals per year. While they all started by making hand made cymbals, most cymbals today are made by computer controlled CNC machines. The big manufacturers do everything possible to maximize production and minimize cost. They make them so fast that quality control goes out the window. They also cut corners resulting in inferior sounding cymbals. For example, lathing the edge thinner to save money but resulting in an overly washy sound.

Why are your cymbals less expensive? Trinity Cymbals are the highest possible quality but we have very competitive prices. It's not that we are cheap, it's that the other brands are overpriced. You are also paying a premium for their corporate structure which requires huge profit, plus a bloated distribution system with several middlemen. You are also paying for their high marketing costs. We are able to offer our cymbals for much less because we are a modern streamlined internet company. We have no middlemen taking a percentage and no corporate shareholders demanding profit. We are a small family of drummers here to hook you up with the best cymbals around!

What is B20 and why is it better? B20 bronze is made of 80% copper and 20% tin. This blend produces the very best sound of any metal. B20 bronze has a full and beautiful tone, great sustain and remarkable stick sensitivity. The hammered bronze produces multiple harmonic overtones which give them a more musical tone. They play with the greatest variety and have the classic tone drummers love.

What about other types of metal? Most cymbals are made from B8, B10 or B12 bronze. These alloys contain less tin, substituting zinc for tin. Zinc makes the alloy less expensive and easier to work which is why most cymbal companies push the lower tin percentage. However, B20 sounds better and is more durable. Trinity Cymbals are all made of B20 bronze with the exception of our steel low volume cymbals, which are made from a very durable steel alloy.

What kind of drummers play Trinity Cymbals? We have drummers from every genre including classic rock, country, jazz, electronic, heavy metal, pop and progressive rock. It is an amazing mix of players who love our cymbals and proves the versatility of our products.
