„I’ve played on ALL makes of cymbals. Paiste are the classiest sounding cymbals I’ve ever found. Playing the Dark Energy’s was the turning point for me. When I heard them in 2003, I ONLY wanted to play Paiste. The support I get is equal to the cymbals; first class.. I am honoured that the company consider me worthy of being part of the family. “
