Stanton Moore has announced the launch of his own cymbal company – Crescent Cymbals.
The New Orleans funk master has previously been a partner with Michael Vosbein, Jeff Hamilton, and Bill Norman in a company called Cymbal Masters, a firm which has been distributing Bosphorus Cymbals for the last eight years.
All cymbals to be released under the Crescent line will be handmade in Turkey. The fruit of the company's labour is set to hit drum stores in September.
Keep your eyes peeled for more news and reviews from Crescent in Rhythm.
