In response to requests from hardcore and progressive drummers for larger, more powerful cymbals, the TRX Cymbal Company has announced that it is expanding its popular BRT Series to include a 24˝ ride, 21˝ and 22˝ crashes and 15˝ hi-hats.

"In the past, the biggest crash cymbals were 20˝ and only the most aggressive players were using them," comments TRX spokesperson David Levine. "We recently began noticing that more and more drummers were playing the bigger sizes and some were even using 21˝ and 22˝ ride cymbals as crashes. But ride cymbals aren't designed to be crash cymbals. It's just not the right sound. So, we developed these larger crashes and matched them with a bigger ride and hi-hats to meet the needs of today's hard rock players."

TRX's BRT Series cymbals are custom-crafted by master Turkish cymbalsmiths and feature heavier weights with extensive hand-hammering and a highly-polished surface. Available in a wide range of crash, splash, ride, hi-hat and china models, the line is noted for its clarity, projection and durability in high-volume playing situations.

"We don't want anybody getting hurt by the massive sound and extreme power of these Big BRTs, though," Levine adds. "We're warning players to use them carefully. With great power comes great responsibility."

TRX Cymbals are distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Direct Music Supply, 1-800-828-1601, sales@directmusicsupply.com. For more information contact the TRX Cymbal Co. at 818-753-1310.
