Packed with Distinctive-sounding Dirt

An ideal choice for electronic music and hip-hop, Paiste PSTX Swiss 16" hi-hats provide you with a highly focused chick sound and a rough, fuzzy character. When they're closed, these hats sound fairly soft and responsive. When you open them; however, you get a noisy, trashy sound that's brimming with distinctive character. The drummers here at Sweetwater have noted that what really sets these hi-hats apart is their unorthodox, funky-sounding Swiss cheese-like design. This unconventional layout creates an exotic, decidedly light (yet surprisingly powerful) effect that's guaranteed to add some beautiful-sounding dirt to your playing. If you're looking to break the mold, Paiste PSTX Swiss 16" hi-hats will inject your performances with a healthy dose of originality.

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!
