JD Sagurton Custom Cymbals

Independent Cymbalsmith JD Sagurton - Mahwah, NJ

As a lifelong drummer, JD Sagurton always struggled to find cymbals with the vibe, feel and sounds that he desired. His first cymbal modification was a very crude hammer job on one of his horrible sounding B8 rides, where he literally used a regular hammer and the sidewalk as his anvil! Of course, the result wasn’t great, but it was enough of an improvement to pique his curiosity, and he started to modify any cymbals he could get his hands on.

After a few years tinkering with sketchy, experimental tool setups, (built his first anvil out of an old dumbbell), JD Sagurton finally designed and built a proper cymbal lathe, and furthered his Journey as a self-taught cymbal smith. Soon, his passion for creating unique cymbals led him to seek mentorship from renowned experts in the field. He was fortunate to have had the opportunity to train under the established master cymbal smiths, Nick Margarite (Nicky Moon), and Dave Collingwood.
