RAW Series

RAW STATE OF PERFECTION

Zultan RAW Cymbals Series story image

The RAW series was introduced in 2016.

Instead of being milled, these cymbals are left in their raw state after an elaborate hammering process, resulting in their extraordinary look.

As a last step, an ultra thin wax polish is applied to ensure a lasting visual appearance. Fine crashes as well as exceptional hi-hats and rides make these cymbals a feast not only for the eyes, but also for the ears.
