Single Crotale for Hire
Crotales are tuned metal discs that are constructed mainly of bronze or brass. Crotales have a very distinctive high, bell-like sound and can easily cut through the heaviest orchestrations. Crotales are generally available in octave sets and are accurately pitched unlike finger cymbals which do not have a definite pitch. Antique cymbals can be either design. The usual crotale range of a two octave set is C6 - C8 (middle C is C4). Finger cymbals are lighter than crotales, smaller and are generally found in pairs.
