Istanbul Xist Dry Dark Terence Clark Cymbal Set

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.

This cymbal set includes:

  • An Xist Dry Dark 17″ Stack Hats (1x 17″ Hi Hats & 1x 17″ Crash)
  • Two Xist Dry 20″ Crashes (stackable)
  • An Xist Dry Dark 19″ Ride

The Stack Hats Pointed, dark and trashy attack with a fast decay – these stack hats feature a pair of 17″ Xist Dry Dark Hi Hats with an additional 17″ Xist Dry Dark Crash which is inserted between the two Hi Hat cymbals even greater attack, a more prominent chick sound and quicker decay. When not used as a hi hat pair, the top cymbal makes for a quick and trashy crash and the bottom can be used as an accent bell or rested on a drum as a mute or alternate sticking surface.

The Crashes – Papery thin with an explosivetrashy attack and fast decay – also comfortable for light riding. Also works well as stacked crash. When the two crashes are stacked as a ‘Crasher Stack‘, they open up easily and speak quickly with a low rasp.

The Ride – A dry, well defined attack with a quick and musical decay and mellow crash. Akin to the sound of many classic breakbeats and sought after jazz ride sounds.
