„My first drumset came with a Paiste 2002`s Hihat and a 2002’s Crash. I instantly loved their look with the red logo but quickly realized, that their sound is unique, smooth and wonderful. From then on I was in love with Paiste Cymbals. When I then became a Paiste artist in 1999, I couldn’t be more proud and happy to be part of the Paiste family. “
