Xist is a modern take on more time-honored techniques.
"The Xist Power includes the loudest and proudest cymbals in the Xist Series. These cymbals are ideal for rock and metal settings, as they pack a heavy punch when you play them. They’re incredibly bright, allowing them to slice through heavy mixes of instrumentation. Although they’re bright and cutting, they’re also fairly responsive to different levels of dynamics. This makes them surprisingly musical. The bells of each cymbal are very impressive. They’re loud and powerful, making them great for playing driving drum parts with. I wouldn’t recommend these to drummers who don’t play heavy music. They’ll be far too aggressive and intense for any other style." - Brett Clur
"The hi-hats to be quite cutting. It takes no more than a few strokes for this theory to be rubber-stamped. Playing around a slightly thinner top with some brisk double strokes, the tips can be heard crisp and clear with fine articulation and control. However, still "rolling" top and pedalling hard, there's little noticeable pitch bend - it seems the cymbal has little "flexing" that we would normally experience from thinner models. A quick slice and rapidly opening up the hats reveals more than just a hint of that Turkish darkness. Pedal chicks, half-open sizzles and any number of pleasing onomatopoeic hi-hat tricks are all readily achievable too." - Dave Holmes
