PORTABLE HIP-ABILITY with Daru Jones
The PST X DJs 45 Set was created in collaboration with the soulful Daru Jones, whose church gospel roots led him to the status of being a sought-after drummer and producer/musical director in the hip-hop, soul and rock scene. Highly praised main stream associations include top acts such as Jack White and Jamie Lidell. His very own style - musically and otherwise - led to critical acclaim in top magazines and appearances on national television programs.
Always on the go, Daru desired a highly portable cymbal set for hip-hop sessions, DJ Jams, and other sit-ins that spontaneously present themselves, enabling him to preserve his personal sound in modern urban mobility.
The concept was developed in the PST X series, which provides a suitable basis for the type of fast and dry sounds that perfectly fit the world of Hip-hop & Electronica percussion. It is executed with a set consisting of a 12" Crash, 12" Ride and 12" Hats.
- 12" PST X DJs 45 RIDE
- 12" PST X DJs 45 CRASH
- 12" PST X DJs 45 HATS
The 12" DJs 45 Crash is a fast, explosive cymbal with dirty fizz for short, quick accents. 12" DJs 45 Hats offer a distinct dry stick sound, an open sound with a muted trashy hiss and a chick that's a stupendous dry clap. The DJs 45 12" Ride's dominant feature is the distinct, full bell; it also offers a dry, bell-like ping and snappy edge accents.
The Crash and Hats Top cymbals feature the characteristic PST X hole pattern. Despite their size all models offer ample volume and projection.
The DJ theme and the 45 rpm 12-inch single - as the archetypical DJ instrument - served as guidance in the overall design and naming of the DJs 45 set. The Ride thus visually mimics a vinyl record.
As a tribute to Daru's inspiration, his Rusic Records label logo has further been placed on the cymbals. PST X are made in Switzerland using modern, innovative methods.
