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.
"It sounds very special, however: the attack seems to be integrated into the overall sound almost in the background, although you can already hear the attacks. This is due to the quickly rising, short and deep hissing noise. The dominant feature of the overall sound is the deep, rich and at the same time dry-short sustain. The 17" hi-hat doesn't look too washy overall, it's just too dry and not really trashy either. It delivers an extremely interesting, very own sound character." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"The 17" hats naturally behave more sluggishly and produce very soft, deep sounds. The wavy cymbal edges take also more important role in here, because this is a factor for a lack of presence and clarity, especially in the pedaled mode. These hats are rather unobtrusive, soft carpets of sound. Of course, the great thing about all these 17" hi-hat models is the ability to separate the cymbals and yo use the top as a crash or "stack" it with other cymbals." - Max Gebhardt
