Istanbul Agop Xist IXDDR19 19″ Dry Dark Ride Cymbal
Istanbul Agop Xist 19″ Dry Dark 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.
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.
