Cymbal Around the World Project 

Three independent cymbal makers in three different nations have joined together to make a once in a lifetime, one-of-a-kind cymbal. This cymbal is being auctioned off to benefit the MusiCares COVID-19 relief fund. NickyMoon (aka Nicholas Margarite, USA), Dave Collingwood (UK) and Craig Lauritsen (Australia) are all highly dedicated independent cymbalsmiths who make 100% handmade cymbals out of Turkish, Canadian and Brazilian bronze alloys. MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares' services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. MusiCares also focuses the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly influence the health and welfare of the music community. Bidding is now live and will close September 31st. At the bottom of this page you can follow the cymbal around the world and see where it currently is, as well as see blog updates from the craftsmen to see the actual work being done.
