Mark Ford, and all the faculty at the University of North Texas, hosted Aaron Jackson and myself for a Zildjian Cymbal Testing Day! Aaron talked about the manufacturing process and drumset, and I spoke about hand cymbals and how to choose the sound for you. After, students got to check out the literally HUNDREDS of cymbals we brought. It was a good time for all.
