TRX Introduces Big-Bell Rides in ALT and BRT Series.
The TRX Cymbal Co. has announced the immediate availability of two new 21″ ride cymbals with larger, more prominent bells. The medium-heavy ALT series Big-Bell Ride features an natural bell and a traditional, lathed surface for a warm, resonant tone plus excellent stick definition and is recommended for mainstream rock and Latin playing situations. The highly-polished, unlathed and hand-hammered BRT series Big-Bell Ride is extra-heavy to provide the bright, dry projection and clarity required for hardcore, metal and punk applications. In both cases, the over-sized bells on the cymbals provide a large, high-pitched, almost piercing bell area while also creating greater definition from the ride area.
