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
"If you are looking for a trashy sound with an excellent sensitivity and a very controlled sound, you have found your cymbal." - Art Spettacoli
"Dark, dry, with a nice stick sound. Does not "wash out" when used as a ride. Can be used as a light ride in acoustic settings as well as for stacking and FX crash." - F. Sta
"A little touch is enough and it sounds like the noise of waves. Really cool, trashy and with a very dark tone, where I thought at the beginning, a truck drives past the house." - Freddy the Freeloader
