„I’ve been a Paiste endorsee for a long time and have been playing Paiste at my own expense for even longer, and it’s been worth every penny. The sound and brilliance, along with it’s tough and rugged endurance and craftsmanship, Paiste gets top grades across the board. I couldn’t be more proud to play the best cymbals in the world along with the best players of heavy music in the world.“
