Crotales have been used by composers and musicians since the 19th century, and while they might be referred to as “antique” cymbals, crotales are just as relevant to modern music as they were to the music of the centuries before ours. What makes crotales so captivating and versatile is their bright, full sound. Crotales are often compared to the sound of a bell but with greater resonance and longer sustain.
