PSTX 16“ Cajon Crash and 12“ Hi-Hats
These cymbals were developed to match the sound characteristics of the cajon. The 16″ multifunctional cymbal is said to respond quickly with an explosive, somewhat dirty crash that fades swiftly. Due to the thin top, the 12″ hi-hats respond rapidly with a bright, dry sound and clear definition. The heavy bottom cymbal yields a crisp, clear chick. Purchase now from Amazon.
