TRX Cymbals Icon Series
The 2011 NAMM Show will mark the arrival of the TRX Icons, designed to "combine the rich, warm tone of vintage cymbals with the brighter, more powerful performance characteristics required by modern players."
In contrast to TRX original DRK, MDM and BRT series that offered a selection of dark, mid and bright tones within separate lines, the Icon series is designed to offer a full spectrum of musically relevant sounds within a single line, the company says.
Icon cymbals are handcrafted in Turkey featuring traditional lathing and a polished, brilliant finish. The cymbals are available in a range of sizes and styles, including Rides, Hi-hats, Splashes, Chinas and Thin, Medium and Heavy Crashes.
The series also includes four models of medium-thin, vented cymbals called Stackers that can be used individually for crash effects or placed directly under or on top of other cymbals to create a short, trashy sound.

- How to Get the Most Out of Multitrack Drum Libraries More drum libraries are showing up in multitrack format from companies like Discrete Drums, Wizoo, East-West, Reel Drums, etc. Although these are sold on the basis of being useable out of the box for drum parts (with the additional advantage of being mixable), I see them more as a gold mine of raw materials for creating custom drum loops.
