A&F have partnered with an incredible Cymbal Smith out of Chicago by the name of Ray Byrne to create an A&F Drum Co. Oddities Cymbal Line! Ray was kind enough to entertain all of their crazy designs and bring them to life, one hand hammered piece at a time!!!
Here we have an A&F Oddity Super Thin Flat Crash/Ride with 3-Rivets. Its created to play at low volumes with a dark swoosh and lots of trash characters! Try it with our A&F Oddity Bells for even more crazy rattle and zing!
Simple Design, Practical Application, Brilliant Sound…these are the pillars that Antoun & Family Drum Co. (A&F) is built upon.
What began as personal mission to make one drum, has now become a legacy drum manufacturing company. Founder and President Ramy Antoun began his career as a studio drummer in Los Angeles in 1996 when he got a call to come into the studio and record live break beats for an “up and coming” rap group. The session spanned five evenings and resulted in the first Black Eyed Peas Album. From there, Ramy went on to record and perform with hundreds of artists including Seal, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Willie, Nelson, Ed Kowalczyk of the band LIVE, Alexi Murdoch, Glen Phillips, Buckethead, Bonnie Raitt, and more. 25 years in the studio became the foundation of A&F Drum Co.’s sound, design, and aesthetic.
