Don't Settle for Clichéd Drums!

If your drum sound has grown a bit cliched, trash it up with the Paiste PSTX Swiss 18" thin crash cymbal! The strong, low wash and exotic, explosive character 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 18" 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!

Sweet sounding suprize

Fast, quick, sweet and trashy , all at the same time. I started with the 10" splash and then added the 14" and now this 18" Swiss thin crash.....where will it end? I find them to work in almost every situation - depending on your overall set-up - But I really like that it works well in low volume and small venues also. You can crash and ride , play them loud or soft, use them as primary or special effects only, it doesn't matter because they perform well in any music or style you can think of. I play everything from Rock to Jazz to oldies and classic standards, And The Paiste PSTX work for me.
