More warmth for Giant Beat

Nottwil/Switzerland – The renowned Swiss cymbal maker Paiste announces the introduction of new Giant Beat Thin models .

Paiste initially launched Giant Beats in 18”, 20” and 24” sizes in 1967. A differentiation of rides and crashes was not usual at that time so they were designated as Multi, (multi-functional cymbals). 14” and 15” hi-hats completed the series. Giant Beats were the first professional grade cymbals made of CuSn8-Bronze, replaced by the classic 2002 in 1971.

When Paiste re-launched the legendary Giant Beat line in 2005, enthusiasm amongst drummers became massive. It’s not a surprise considering today’s bands love to interrelate sounds of the 60s and early 70s to their modern music.

With the success of the reissued Giant Beats, continuous inquires for additional models grew and in response to these requests, Paiste introduces the 18“ and 20“ Thins to the original Giant Beat line up. The Thins, which are lighter in weight than the Multi, have a quick response. Their soft, smooth attack is followed by a deep, warm, velvety, and round sound paired with the trademark vintage character of the original Giant Beats.

When played with the tip of the drum stick, subtle, silvery highs shimmer throughout the cymbal followed by a dark wash. The Giant Beat Thin reveals sound features never heard before from any cymbal made of this alloy.
