Paiste Artist Since
The Vim Dicta
„How a drummer sounds to the musicians around him or her, and to the audience, along with the instruments chosen, is an extension of that drummer’s personality…. the craftsman at Paiste Cymbals are the only team that captures the colors and vibrance of my personality, and injects them into their instruments, so I can be heard the way I prefer. It’s a personal choice.“
