New DRK/BRT Hi-Hats from TRX Cymbals feature sonically-matched DRK bottom and BRT top hi-hat cymbals to produce bright, penetrating closed hi-hat sounds with fuller, more explosive open and half-open sounds. The pairs are available in 13, 14 and 15˝ models and recommended for a variety of contemporary drumming styles.
"By themselves, heavy hi-hats are great for stick definition and high-pitched projection when played closed," explains TRX spokesman David Levine. "But they're often thin and one-dimensional in terms of their open sound. We found that combining a bright (BRT) top with a dark (DRK) bottom brings back a lot of the bottom-end and balances out the overall frequency spectrum — creating an amazing hi-hat sound that's extremely crispy and crunchy."
