NEW! Masters Additions - Gentle Masters

Nottwil/Switzerland - The renowned cymbal maker Paiste announces the launch of the new Masters models Extra Thin & Dark Splash, plus the Dark Crash Ride in the new 22" size.


 Masters Extra Thin



Physically and acoustically, the 18", 19" and 20" Extra Thins are characterized by particular subtlety. Inspired by iconic studio master Jim Keltner’s ideas for sound and function, Paiste’s Sound Development created a warm, soft crash that unobtrusively and discreetly embeds itself in soft musical situations.

Moreover, the swift decay supports even delicate ride playing. The Extra Thins feel incomparably soft. Their sensitive response allows hand playing and wonderful crescendos with mallets.


Masters Dark Splash




The 8" and 10" Dark Splashes exude a subtle whooshing effect sound with a round, even decay. They suitably complement eponymous Masters series models with their dark character, soft feel and quick response and otherwise work equally well for setups that call for light to moderate accents.


Masters Dark Crash Ride




With the 22" Dark Crash Ride Paiste adds a larger alternative to the popular 20” model. It features the same buttery feel, yet an even deeper, darker wash that still allows the delicate stick sound to prevail with enough definition. The crash sound is rather forceful and mysterious, with complex layers.


The Masters series is an exquisite collection of laboriously hand-crafted cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres.

Masters are made by hand from CuSn20 bronze using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.
