Living up to their name, these cymbals are extremely dry, with low-pitched, trashy sounds and short sustain. The raw unlathed surfaces and extensive hand hammering suggest that their sound might be loud and fierce. In reality, the Extra Dry series reveals its dark, earthy tones and comes to life when played at lower volumes.
Distinctive hihat due to its weight relation between top and bottom. Dry and defined, fat chick due to heavy bottom. Light weight top produces a dark stick response with little wash.
