With their conspicuously absent bell and whispery volume range, flat rides may not be suitable for heavier styles of music. But drummers who seek a transparent voice full of glassy stick tip articulation should consider adding one of these elegant instruments to their bronze collection. And when you do, be sure to test drive the three new flat ride models that TRX Cymbal Company has added to its deep, warm DRK Series. They offer a very different take on an age-old design.
The handcrafted 18", 20", and 22" TRX DRK flat rides feature a natural finish with extensive hand hammering and a classic, extra-dry sound that is recommended for traditional and progressive jazz as well as world music drumming applications.
