I prefer the subtle nuances of hand hammered cymbals over the consistency of machine or hand-held hammered cymbals.

I love my hand hammered pies, but I also love most of my machine hammered cymbals too. Even in machine hammered cymbals, there can be a lot of variation in the sounds.

I'm sure a lot of the big companies such as Zildjian and Sabian etc use a computerised machine to hammer a random pattern ala hand hammering.

Although I'm sure a lot of the smaller custom companies still hammer by hand.

Having said that, I prefer the "hand" hammered patterns to the very hard machine hammered ones.

sabians hh and hhx lines are still hammered by hand...paiste and zildjian use random machine hammering. saluda forms their cymbals through hand hammering. i dont know about the rest of the companies but my guess is that companies like bosphorus, masterwork, and istanbul still hammer theirs.

All Sabian cymbals are hand hammered and lathed. I'm pretty sure that only Zildjian's Constantinople line is hand hammered, now.

Yep, the only thing that really changes is the number of hammer marks and quality of the lathing. There's a room with some big ol' corn fed mofo's who do nothing but hammer cymbals eight hours a day. My manager at the drum shop I worked at spent a week at the factory.
