Product Close-Up


Stack Packs

Pre-paired cymbals for a variety of short, trashy effects.

CRX is the China-made sub-brand of TRX cymbals designed to offer professional-quality sounds at competitive prices. The latest offerings from CRX include a collection of ten Stack Packs designed to create white-noise special effects. The collection comprises various combinations of splashes, Chinas, and perforated Stackers from the Classic, Xtreme, and Rock series. We were sent eight of the ten pairs to review. We’ve divided those eight into two groups: those incorporating 8″ to 12″ cymbals and those incorporating 10″ to 14″ models.
