HOHTO

Hohto series was created together with drummer Kai Hahto- specially for Kai’s preferences and for Nightwish music. Kai wanted his cymbals to be bright yet controllable. Ride with nice stick definition and bell to be heard over other instruments, crashes bright that open up easily, chinas trashy and fast.. One of the coolest pieces is the stack made of heavy 10” splash and paper thin 12” effect china.. A set that has lots of versatility. Kai has been using- and perfecting- his set up for two years and we could not be happier of outcome - the setup that lasts whole career! This time we did not make an embarrassing typo but Hohto is a Finnish word meaning “Shining” which reflects the sound of these cymbals - and is obviously a reference to our Shining Star - Mr. Kai Hahto.
