Full and Shimmering 16" Crash

The Paiste 16" Alpha B Rock Crash rocks. This is the definitive rock crash sound: warm, full, and shimmering. It delivers even response with medium sustain.

The Paiste Alpha series

Made with CuSn8 Bronze (aka 2002 Bronze), Alpha cymbals are very versatile and work great in a wide variety of musical settings, including classic rock, punk, hard rock, heavy and progressive metal, fusion, and louder music styles in general. The sound is "bright, crisp, energetic, powerful, and cutting with clarity, warmth, and tonal definition."

Paiste - a tradition of innovation

Headquartered in Switzerland, Paiste meets the creative needs of drummers and percussionists with innovative cymbals, gongs, and bronze percussion instruments. Founded at the beginning of the 20th Century, Paiste lays claim to a number of cymbal firsts, including the first use of 8% bronze, the wavy-edged hi-hat bottom cymbal, the bell-less flat ride, unlathed hammered cymbals, color-coated cymbals, China cymbals with a downturned edge, and the invention of their Signature Bronze Alloy. World-class drummers such as Bill Bruford, Stewart Copeland, Vinnie Colaiuta, and many Sweetwater drummers have long relied on Paiste cymbals to forge their signature sounds - and you can, too!
