Xist Brilliant Ride
Delivers sweet-sounding ping, rapidly reinforced by a pleasing underlying wash which steadily builds but retains its composure, never blooming to a peak.
Offers clear, focused attack with a dark, warm sustain.
Features moderate overtones.
"The 20" Xist ride featured a blend of qualities
that made it fun to play. The bell had a very consistent sound, regardless of where or how I hit it. When
I rode on the bow, the stick produced a bright, clear
ping," with an interesting wash reverberating
underneath. I enjoyed pushing the cymbal with the
shoulder of the stick, which gave a nice boost of volume when I needed it. Again, I liked using the ride as
a crash. I don't normally feel this way about most
"pingy" rides, which are usually a little too thick to
work as a crash. This cymbal, however, had a pleas-
ant balance of ride and crash characteristics." - Dave Previ
"It's rather soft and has a nice ping. One of the highlights is the bell. It's not that pushy and fits in well with a lot of songs. You can also crash it well." - Julian
"Very fine cymbal, nice clear sound, nice sustain, the pitch is not too low, so it doesn't get in the way of other sounds in the mix. Versatile use for various music styles and also by using different techniques (sticks, mallets, etc.)." - Trigg
