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.
"The first thing that strikes you is how deep they sound. Fans of bright, lively sounds should definitely stay away from these cymbals. That doesn't mean that the Xist Dry Dark Crashes sound bad, on the contrary. They respond very quickly to the stick attack and then produce a dense, extremely deep whooshing crash sound. I find the tonal coordination between their sizes - despite the high proportion of overtones - successful." - Max Gebhardt
"Very dark, fast and trashy and great feeling when you dig into it. Stacks perfectly with other sizes from the same series to produce unique sounds that record with unbelievable results!" - Pumpal
"It is dry with a short buttery decay but opens up pretty easily, you can use this cymbal as a ride. This cymbal is also super thin and opens up with the touch of your hand." - Gidoguy
