Xist Dry Dark is created as a bridge between the acoustic and electric, organic and 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.
"13" hi-hat looks quite powerful for this size. It delivers a defined attack, which despite the dark and compact sound character. If you are looking for a large separation in terms of frequency between a very deep bass drum, robust snare drum and short-sounding hi-hat, you could find it here. The 13" hi-hat has the necessary presence and is also full enough to cut a good figure as an overall dark, dry sounding main hi-hat." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"Dark, trashy, nice "chick" and definition. A no brainer for jazz and contemporary hip hop / electronic music. Records well." - F. Sta
"The 13 "Xist Dry Dark Hats play well even if they have very little rebound. Open they sound phenomenal and they also play very precisely with the foot!" - bigdrummerboy
"This is a truly masterpiece. A beautiful dark and dry sound, with tons of articulation, a buttery chick-sound when played with foot and an unexpected bright sound when played opened (due to the 13 inch diameter). Also is a beautiful looking hihat." - M. Ds
