Following the successful introduction of their 20" Crash-Ride model in 2007, the TRX Cymbal Co. has announced the availability of its new 18" Crash-Ride. Combining the sound and performance qualities of both a crash cymbal and a ride cymbal, TRX Crash-Rides are available in TRX DRK, MDM, ALT and BRT series and are relevant for a wide variety of contemporary music applications.
"We're seeing a lot of young drummers going back to the basics with 4 and 5-piece drumkits and a more compact, more versatile cymbal set-up these days. I think this is all as part of a healthy less-is-more, music-comes-first trend," comments TRX Director of Marketing, David Levine. "TRX 18" and 20" Crash-Rides with a pair of 14" hi-hats can form the foundation of a larger cymbal set yet they can give a modern rock drummer all the sound, rhythm and power he or she needs without breaking their backs or bank accounts."
TRX 18" Crash-Rides have a suggested retail price of $350.00 each and are available at leading drumshops. In addition, TRX "Crash-Ride Combo Pack" that includes 18" and 20" Crash-Rides, a pair of 14" Hi-Hats and a free, Limited Edition cymbal bag is also being offered while supplies last.
