Michael Griener’s cymbals

Here’s a video Michael Griener, our man in Berlin, made for me back in May, demonstrating his two sets of Cymbal & Gong* cymbals. Michael has been a loyal (and increasingly exclusive) Cymbal & Gong user since about 2017, when I got him his first used 20″ Mersey Beat.

Michael is one of the most active players around, constantly touring and recording all over Europe, and it’s a very big deal to have a player like that be so enthusiastic about Cymbal & Gong’s cymbals. Serious players love them.

* And Leon Collection, which were sort of under C&G’s umbrella when he got them.
