Soultone cymbals are a relatively new cymbal brand on the market. Founded in 2003, by drummer and percussionist Iki Levy, the company is building their brand in a special and vigorous way. Special because the company wants to deliver special products, customized to the artist that plays them. But Soultone is also vigorously; just because they are convinced they produce the best cymbals on the planet. In the video below you can at least check this claim, before going to stores and try them out.

Iki Levy (who has played with artists like Paula Abdul, Tracy Chapman, Donna Summer and with the new Disney hype, Disney’s High School Musical) talks you through all the cymbals showed in the booth at NAMM 2010. Below you find the contents and the video tour we got from Mr. Levy, but also a feature that deserves some more attention; Soultone produces on-demand Custom sized cymbals for any line of cymbals they manufacture, in ˝\" sizes. Any cymbal you would like to have more weight, sustain, or just needs your special demand... Soultone says they can produce that cymbal for you.
In the video with this article you see and hear Iki demonstrate all of the splashes, crashes, rides and hi-hats the company produces, including the M-Series Moffett Signature Line: the signature cymbals of (former) Michael Jackson drummer Jonathan \"Sugar Foot\" Moffett.
