Summer may be over for 2016, but entering into a new season can mean new adventures. New adventures for Heartbeat often means…. new products! Welcome the new Heartbeat Jazz series 22″ Ride!
This project started in 2005 when Heartbeat initiated a project with a cymbal manufacturer to recreate a famous ride cymbal used by a famous artist on a famous album released in 1967. While that manufacturer agreed to produce a limited quantity of those cymbals, it never became a regular catalogue item for that manufacturer. As circumstances and events change, Heartbeat and that company ended their relationship and Heartbeat cymbals were introduced to the world in 2010.
In 2014, Heartbeat revived the project. Two years later, we are very happy to present the finalized product… the new Heartbeat HB-JR22 Jazz Ride! It not only brings the elements of the sounds of late ’60s progressive jazz giants like Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, Jack DeJohnette, but it adds a unique Heartbeat flavor in both sound and appearance.
