Paiste Artist Since
„Since making the switch to Paiste I have felt my playing come alive, as well as sitting beautifully in the mix when used in the studio. These cymbals have an incredibly wide dynamic and even the lightest touch has tonnes of clarity and depth. The Masters range is truly a work of art and the dry ride has fast become my all time favourite cymbal. It's a sound I have been searching for extensively over the years and I am so glad to be able to play that cymbal everyday! The entire range is gorgeous and it's truly a pleasure to join this amazing family.“
