„Paiste’s sound palette is not only legendary, but it is also unmatched by any other brand. The consistency between each cymbal is phenomenal, and that translates in the fact that you always know what you will get according to the “master cymbal” hi-resolution sound samples available on this website’s “Soundroom”. “
