Two events led me to these. First, something clicked when I got a chance to play a set Kerope and K Con cymbals early this year. I felt they finally delivered the oldskool dark and trashy sounds which regular K's promised but never took to the max. And then I heard Antonio Sanchezí cymbals on the Pat Metheny Unity Group album. They were so radically different from anything I had heard and played before. It took me a while to warm up to the sound, but once I did, I was hooked. Unfortunately, the price for admission to these wonderful sounds are frightening, or so I thought. All that changed however while windowshopping in Lyric Main Horseshoe. I was about to leave when the salesman directed me to the Silken display. My first impression was that this was just another small, funky cymbal brand. I was unimpressed with the Sebring, Avus, and Borealis series. But one hit on the 20" Trois blew my mind. It wasn't only dark and trashy, but CRAZY-BOINGY-GONGY dark and trashy. I guess it's what you get when a Chinese cymbalsmith interpolates vintage Turkish cymbals. About the only thing right about my first impression was the price, less than half of big name brands, and another half off due to a Lyric's Super Sale. I didn't have enough cash on me, so I had it reserved until the weekend. I went back bright and early on a Saturday morning, and left the store not only with the 20", but with an 18" too. Now all I need is a gig.

I just came from Lyric SM North. Saw two more Trois 20" crashes. Very different from the one I bought and not my type. This means they are very inconsistent, and it boils down to your taste. But the Trois 14" hats were very nice to me. I hope I get some money together before the sale ends mid-November.

There's even a 16" Trois in Lyric's website for ₱4,340. That means P2,170 if 50% off. But they don't have any on the Main or SM North, so I haven't tried it. Baka other branches.

^ Tawag ka muna sa branch.

Last week I saw the Trois 14" hihats sa SM North. About 5k. Very old skool dark and trashy. Very tempting.

Ganda din ng brand na to. At abot kaya pa. I have 14" sebring beat hats yung flat ang bottom, 16" dragon crash at 20" master dark ride. May issue lang ako na napansin sa dragon crash ko. Kasi lagi ko siya ginagamit sa gigs, may yupi na siya. Ganon ba talaga maninipis na cymbals? Manipis kasi siya?
