Play the Difference

For your next cymbal, don’t choose by your ears.

UFIP is the only premium cymbal manufacturer in Italy and one of the very few major cymbal brands produced in Europe

“Rotocasting”® is what makes UFIP cymbals different from all the rest. This process of subsequent pressing reduces air pockets in the alloy and ensures greater thickness of the bell compared to those cymbals obtained by simple pressing. This allows a better sound that wave along the cymbal surface.

UFIP Rotocast® cymbals are made using only the finest B20 Bell Bronze offering a purity of sound or wide dynamic range. Every process is completed by hand, resulting in an instrument that is as individual as you.
