Great Tone Made Affordable

The PST7 series is the result of Paiste's continued development of materials and production techniques - giving you the sound and quality you're used to from Paiste cymbals at an affordable price. Made using the same CuSn8 Bronze (aka 2002 Bronze) base that their famous 2002 series is comprised of, these cymbals work great in a wide variety of musical settings to keep your kit's sound as versatile as you need it to be. The sound is brilliant and clear, warm and strong, with powerful projection. Sweetwater's drum experts will tell you the quickest way to freshen up your drum sound is with new cymbals, and Paiste makes that easy with the PST7 series.

Paiste - a tradition of innovation

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, and Vinnie Colaiuta have long relied on Paiste cymbals to forge their signature sounds - and so can you!

Paiste's PST7 14" hi-hats are bright, strong, and brilliant with a medium wide range, and clean mix. Clear, piercing chick sound that's powerful enough for rock and metal.

Great sounding

Got these to replace a pair of really bad hi-hats that came with a used kit (can anyone say Scimitar?). I use my kit to do light recording, so I am not a robust drummer, but have played in bands,and played Paiste 2002 Sound Edge hi-hats, and although I don't currently have a pair to compare side-by-side, these PST-7 cymbals sound very similar to my ears. I just don't have $ to shell out. Had these for about 2 months, and play a little 2-3 times a week, seem solid and durable. Good chick and wonderful open sound. Highly recommended. Go to Paiste website to hear samples, that really sold me. Of course, Sweetwater has a good price, plus free shipping.

Highly Recommend

I have been slowly switching over to Paiste cymbals after using Zildjian for many years, have a 2002 ride and crash and wanted hi hats. Didn't have the budget for the 2002 hi-hats, so I looked into these. Checked the sound file on Paiste's site and thought they sounded pretty good, so went ahead and ordered them. I compared them to my New Beats, bottom cymbal seemed to be about the same weight, but the top lighter and thinner. Very impressed when I tried them side by side as to the crispness of them compared to the New beats, and that is what I was looking for. Save yourself $ unless you just have to have the 2002's !

They're definitely worth buying

These sound like 2002's, only without the big price tag. They have the high-end sizzle that only comes from Paiste cymbals. The pitch is high, unlike the low-mid pitch of the Zildjian hi-hats, and to my ears they sound better than any other budget cymbals made by Zildjian, Sabian, Mienl etc. I try to find fault with them, but I can't. They sound great. I hope Paiste doesn't raise the price of the PST7 line of cymbals, when they realize how good these are. Considering their current price, it's one heck of a value. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars, is they're not 2002's or Signature line of cymbals. Those cymbals are more refined sound wise. But you can compare the various lines of cymbals on Paiste's website, and sometimes the difference isn't that great or apparent between apples to apples comparisons. Again, a great value!
