New LTD Series from TRX Features Triple-Enhanced Hi-Hats and Crash-Rides

United States
19 April 2008 — Now available in 18˝ and 20˝ Crash-Ride models and matching 14˝ Hi-Hats, the new LTD Series from the TRX Cymbal Co. has been designed to offer drummers several improvements over the sound and performance of previously available Crash-Rides and Hi-hats. The LTD Series employs three types of finishing processes to enhance the two types of sounds that are characteristic of the popular, dual-purpose cymbals.

During the course of their ongoing research into cymbal performance, TRX master cymbalsmiths recognized that modifying the three main areas of a cymbal— the edge, bell and face— can greatly influence its acoustical output. By developing a unique combination of manufacturing methods that optimize each zone’s sonic impact they were able to create the LTD series.

The outer edge of LTD Crash-Ride cymbals features a heavily polished finish that adds more brightness and explosiveness to the crash component of the sound while the bell of the cymbal is has a natural finish to increase the definition and articulation of the ride sound. To maintain a balance between the LTD’s clarity and power and its overall warmth and full-frequency tonal spectrum, the main playing surface has a more traditional lathed and hand-hammered finish. In the case of the hi-hats, this “three-zone” approach provides a cleaner, crisper stick and foot sound plus more volatile open and half-open effects.

Slightly heavier than TRX MDM (Medium) Series to further enhance their projection and durability, TRX LTD line is recommended for a variety of contemporary playing situations. The cymbals are sold individually but are also available in an exclusive Crash-Ride Combo Pack, which includes an 18˝ and 20˝ Crash-Ride, 14˝ Hi-Hats and a free TRX deluxe cymbal bag, while supplies last.
