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 17″ Dry Dark Hi-Hats
17’’ Hi Hats
Dark and trashy attack. Washy, yet with a quick decay. Insert an additional 17” Dry Dark Crash resting in the bottom cymbal for a focused attack on top and a fat, crunchy attack on the side as well as a more prominent chick sound. Paired with the 17” Dry Dark Crash as an alternate bottom, they’re dark, and trashy but with moderate volume.
