TRX Makes Big Bad Bells

By Radim McCue Published September 9, 2009

Big bells are in, especially for heavy music situations that require projection and power. The TRX Cymbal Company 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. TRX recommends it 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.

TRX handcrafted, genuine Turkish 21" Big-Bell Rides carry a suggested retail price of $475. For more information please contact the TRX Cymbal Co. at 818-753-1310 or visit
