Traditional XT is developed with the collaboration of Rob Brian, features more pronounced bell and deeper curve from bell to edge. It is designed to give the response and feel of thinner cymbals but the clarity and cut of a heavier ones.
Traditional XT Crash
Is bright, full with immediate attack and slightly brassy overtones.
Retains quick articulation.
Builds to full crescendo when crash-riding.
"Smaller XT Edition crashes are bright and full with an immediate attack and slightly brassy overtones - it works well as an accent cymbal but gets slightly lost under heavy and repeated sticking. The larger crashes are perhaps the pick of the bunch, and the most versatile - a full swelling crash loses the brassy overtones of the smaller ones but retains its quick articulation and builds on it to a full crescendo when crash-riding. The larger crashes also does double-duty as a light ride under soft sticking, increasing its appeal. Together they complement each other." - Jake Stacey
