The XIST Dry Dark Series Cymbals were created as a bridge between the acoustic and electric, organic and the electronic- 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. 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.
Istanbul Agop XIST 10″ Dry Dark Hi-Hats
10’’ Hi Hats
Pointed, dark and trashy attack with a fast decay. Insert an additional 10” Dry Dark Splash (not included) resting in the bottom cymbal for even greater attack, a more prominent chick sound and ever quicker decay, or use it as an alternate bottom cymbal for a low volume, soft hi hat pairing that retains crisp sticking.
When not used as a Hi Hat pair, the top cymbal makes for a quick and trashy splash and the bottom can be used as an accent bell or rested on a drum as a mute or alternate sticking surface.
