When the TRX Cymbal Co. was established in 2006 we chose “Young Turks” as our slogan because our mission was (and still remains) to bring the quality of traditional, handcrafted Turkish cymbals to modern drummers. The definition of Young Turks is “strong, young newcomers” and that’s exactly what our cymbals— and the drummers who play them— are.
We also like to say that, even though we’re a small, “boutique” cymbal company, we’re big on quality. Focusing on quality instead of quantity isn’t the fastest, easiest or least expensive way to make cymbals. But it’s never been our goal to be one of the biggest cymbal companies in the world—just one of the best.
By listening to drummers from a variety of styles and genres, we learned how important sonic diversity and contrast are in modern drumming. Combining this knowledge with the skill of our cymbal masters, we created a core of dark, medium and bright cymbal sounds. Over the years this has expanded into a “High Contrast” spectrum that provides the widest and most musically relevant range of sounds possible— allowing today’s players to select a cymbalset that’s truly made for the way they play.
