Roberto Spizzichino

Most of you drummers know the name Spizzichino. It’s a guy in Toscany (Italy), that makes handcrafted cymbals, trying to find the sound of the ‘old K’s’. And he’s damn good at that, so his cymbals are pretty exclusive!

My brother Botte, who works for the radio, heard the Spizzichino story from me, and took me there to make a documentairy about him. Last tuesday we went there, and what a guy! He’s the nicest and most honest person you can imagine, full of great stories, and with lots of ideas about cymbals. We sat down, talked for 4 hours, bought some wine in between, looked at his huge collection of old cymbals, and admired his own work. It was the best! Eventually I had the great opportunity to buy one of his 22″ K-sound-alikes, that he finished on the spot (see pictures) and signed for me. What a guy! The documentary is gonna be broadcasted in Holland Doc (radio 1) at the end of January, I’ll keep you posted about that.

  4. Hi,

    My boyfriend and I will be visiting Italy this summer. He is a drummer and a huge fan of Roberto Spizzichino. I would love to surprise him by arranging a visit to the Spizzichino factory.
    Would you be able to direct me or provide me with the address and more importantly the phone number of his factory? I would not wish to go unannounced.
    Any assistance would be very appreciated.

    Thanking you very much in advance
    Anna
