Paiste Artist Since
„I play PAISTE cymbals because it’s the ONLY cymbal that provides me with “true” , “musical’ and “non abrasive’’ color, texture and tone. PAISTE helps me deliver in live performance and especially in the studio. PAISTE cymbals are the most musical cymbals I’ve ever played.. period.“
