Paiste Artist Since
„Paiste cymbals are perfectly balanced having a crystal sheen attack that’s not harsh at all, with a beautifully controlled, wash decay. They make it easy to be dynamic and always sound full. With live playing they display these characteristics while losing NONE of the power required to project. They are the perfect cymbal! “
