Istanbul Xist Dry Dark 20in Crash Cymbal


Agop – real Turkish clobber.


Istanbul Xist Dry Dark 20″ Crash

The Xist Dry Dark Series Cymbals were created as a bridge between the acoustic and electronic music. Organic – a modular cymbal lineup designed to be uniquely expressive as individual pieces or in unique pairings and combinations. Each cymbal exhibits a pointed attack with dark overtones and very quick decay and is soft and wobbly to play. Played alone they demonstrate a wide dynamic range and with organic, dark tones designed to not overpower other instruments. In combinations they can be uniquely percussive, modern and synthetic sounding. A great compliment for traditional straight ahead jazz, synth based music and modern, progressive jazz.

Papery thin with an explosive, trashy attack and fast decay – also comfortable for light riding. Also works well as stacked crash.
