„It is truly a huge privilege for me to be a Paiste Artist. The quality and sound of the instruments is second to none and their versatility and consistency is without equal. I never have trouble in finding the right cymbal for any musical situation I find myself in. The level of support wherever I am in the world is fantastic and it makes me feel honoured to be a part of the family.“
