Cymbalsmith Training​

Do you want to become a cymbalsmith?

Have you started repairing or modifying cymbals?

I'm now offering one-to-one online training, tailored to your level of knowledge and experience.

Even if you've never hammered or lathed a cymbal, I can help develop your understanding and process and figure out the tools and materials you'll need.

If you don't find a schedule to suit you, simply let me know and I can add a new option.


One-off sessions are also available to purchase through my webshop:

"I Highly recommend Dave as a guide for anyone who wants to explore and and study everything about making cymbals.


Very professional and very patient, he accompanied me from the beginning to the final product, while answering all of my questions."
