Introduced in 2013, CRX cymbals provide a range of dark, medium, and bright tones at very competitive prices. Individually crafted from B20 bronze by cymbalsmiths in China, these pro-quality instruments include the unlathed Classic, the traditionally lathed Rock, and the recently reworked Xtreme series, which has a brilliant, microlathed, hammered finish. We were sent a set of Xtreme Brilliants to evaluate, and we were quite impressed. These are no run-of-the-mill mass-produced budget cymbals.

Check out an audio sample below.
