TRX Blends Series Cymbals

A best-of-both-worlds approach to achieving power and warmth.

 Earlier this year, the California-based/Turkish-made cymbal company TRX released what it’s calling a “mash-up” of its medium-weight, traditionally lathed and hammered MDM series and its heavyweight, brilliantly polished BRT series. This new line is aptly named Blends.

The Blends series features a BRT-style bell and bow (polished and unlathed) and an MDM-style outer section (traditional lathing). The goal is to combine some of the power, brightness, and focus of the heavier BRT line with the responsive, warm, all-purpose tones of the MDM. Blends are available in a wide range of sizes. We were sent a review set comprising 8″ and 10″ splashes ($225 and $250); 14″ hi-hats ($625); 16″, 18″, and 20″ crashes ($375, $425, and $550); and a 22″ ride ($600).
