Made a few videos using my new TRX cymbals

Hey guys, haven't posted in a while. I made a couple new drum covers using my TRX MDM 14" hats and BRT/DRK 13" hats. As well as 18" and 19" BRT crashes. All of which were purchased from Travis Orbin a while back. I'm really digging the sound of these. I may sell some of my sabians for a set of these.

I also used the cymbals on my online band's first single. I mixed the song.

Those sound pretty darned good. Maybe kind of K-ish. Your playing is good too. I like the sound of all your drums and cyms.

Thanks! I get an HHX evolution vibe from these crashes, but with some brightness of an A custom. Beautiful and very diverse cymbals. The mdm hats are just awesome all-around hats. And the drk/brt hats are extremely diverse. I love switching which one is on top or bottom - there really is a difference in tone.

Haha, be nice to those- I bought his 19" LTD China and 19" Icon crash and both cracked pretty damn quickly under my certainly not as powerful stroke. He does not play nice, as we say ;) The LTD China sounds so damn good that I bought another one, though, and I put a bunch of holes in the Icon to make a great FX crash.

So cool to find someone else who bought some of his stuff! And yeah, I snagged the hats quickly because I know they won't break, and they were used on 80% of his recordings. But the crashes are coming off the kit soon, and certainly won't be used live. Eventually I'll get an entire set of TRX cymbals and put the Orbin Crashes and hats on display or something hehe.

Absolutely. TRX (or Masterwork, more accurately) make some really nice stuff.
