The Antidote for Stale Drums!
The trashy character of the Paiste PSTX Swiss 16" thin crash cymbal is the perfect antidote for a stale drum sound. The strong, low wash and exotic, explosive sound of this crash cymbal is guaranteed to inject some excitement into your drumming, and its fast, responsive feel and fairly quick decay make it the perfect complement to your existing cymbal collection. The drummers here at Sweetwater have noted that what really sets this crash cymbal apart (beyond its silky surface) is its unorthodox, funky-sounding Swiss cheese-like layout. The Paiste PSTX Swiss 16" thin crash cymbal is sure to bring scads of dirty (yet beautiful) noise to your drum performances.
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 2002 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 you can, too!Paiste PSTX Swiss 16" Thin Crash Cymbal Features at a Glance:
