Default TRX Cymbals

Got to check out the new Dark Icon series from TRX. Beautiful cymbals.

Has anyone else played these?

Default Re: TRX Cymbals

I bought 14" hats,20" Ride and 16" crash for $525 shipped when the TRX dark first came out. Sold them to buy K Hybrids,but liked the TRX's better. Unfortunately they are hard to find discounted.
Like you discovered,very good dark sound...
Thanks for the review,so much better with a video than not.

Thanks so much Tracer. That's a bummer about selling the DRKs. Great cymbals.

The cymbals may sound beautiful, and about half of them *look* beautiful... but those logos are huge, and, in my opinion, not attractive. I've noticed this among some of the newer, upstart cymbal companies, and I'm not a fan. Wow me with the sound of your product, not with the amount of ink you can put on the top.

I reviewed a set of cymbals from another young company importing Turkish cymbals, and I said the same thing about those. The TRX logos, for whatever reason, did not bother me.

Normally, I can't stand big logos, but I never even thought about it with these.
