TRX Cymbals @ 2013 Winter NAMM

Without attempting to rewrite the rulebook, TRX Cymbals has added key models to its ever-expanding catalog every year, and 2013 was no exception, starting with the introduction of two series of vented cymbals: the dark sounding Thunder and brighter Lightning. Perhaps more interesting, though, is the launch of the extensive CRX brand, comprised of three different series – Classic, Rock, and Extreme. So what’s the dif? Since CRX is made in China, these cymbals run at about half the price of the Turkish-made TRX brand.
