About Collingwood Cymbals

Hello, and thanks for checking out my patreon page!

Collingwood Cymbals has been built from scratch by myself, Dave Collingwood, over the past 5 years. I hand-craft unique cymbals from the finest B20 bronze alloy sourced from Turkey using 100% self-taught techniques based around the traditional approach of hand-hammering and lathing.

I'm frequently asked about methods for cymbal making & modification, and I've decided to offer the opportunity for anyone looking to get their head around the art to approach me for help. My approach is very much about the thinking process involved as well as the practical techniques, I find this is the best way to communicate an attitude to the work that will help you fully understand what you're doing and why, alongside encouraging your own unique voice to translate to the metal, and out into the world as beautiful musical instruments!

Alongside this, higher tier rewards include regular delivery direct to your door of a unique cymbal made just for you.

I'll be offering tutorials and video content in the form of regular YouTube updates, exclusive Patreon-only access content, and one-to-one sessions online.

To all those who have already been so supportive of my growing business, I thank you deeply, I couldn't do it without you! Anyone new to the art of cymbal making and my work, please feel free to reach out and make the connection, there's a lot to learn and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you!
