Nottwil/Switzerland – The renowned cymbal maker Paiste announces the launch of the new PST5.

Paiste Sound Technology stands for first-class manufactured cymbals and high quality sound design at an affordable price. PST5 is the entry to Paiste’s world of bronze cymbals and since its introduction in 2005, it continues to be a best seller. Considering recent musical trends, the PST5 was newly designed by our Swiss Sound Development Team.

Visually the PST5 were consciously altered only in detail but their fundamental sonic value changed considerably. The cymbals are lighter resulting in a deeper, warmer sound while preserving its bright basic character. They have increased flexibility resulting in a more appealing feel. Overall the new PST5 is significantly more musical.

Musically open minded beginners will find a great starting cymbal set with the 14", 16" and 18" Medium Crashes, 20" Medium Ride and 14" Medium Hats.

The 8" and 10" Splash enrich the assortment with fast responding effect cymbals. There is also an 18" China available for drummers and percussionists who want to add exotic colours to their sound.

For the first time in this class, Paiste introduces a 14" Sound Edge Hats cymbal, a legendary Paiste invention that dates back to 1967. Paired with the 16" and 18" Rock Crash as well as the 20" Rock Ride, this option is an outstanding foundation of a cymbal set in louder music styles.

The 18" Ride/Crash has immense versatility to use as a light ride for lower passages or as a powerful crash with solid volume.

Universal Set (14" Medium Hats, 16" Medium Crash, 20" Medium Ride), Rock Set (14" Sound Edge Hats, 16" Rock Crash, 20" Rock Ride) and Essentials Set (14" Medium Hats, 18" Ride/Crash) come with newly designed boxes and offer price conscious drummers perfectly matched basic setups. The Effects Pack (10" Splash, 18" China) is an excellent enhancement to an existing set of cymbals.

PST5 are made from 2002 bronze in Paiste’s German facility.
