„Paiste cymbals are works of art, instantly recognisable visually and sonically. No matter what combination of Paiste cymbals you try, they will blend together beautifully. My 2002 cymbals are perfect for the loud hard rock I play as I need them to cut through the noisy guitars but they also sound stunning when played softly. “
