Smooth, crisp, and full with a silky deep touch.

These Alpha Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals have a fairly wide range and a clean mix. Their fairly bright and round open sound and its tight and soft chick sound make them very versatile Paiste hi-hats for multi-purpose use in moderate music styles.

Paiste Alpha cymbals were first launched in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. The Alpha Series is now available in a Brilliant Finish, once again advancing these trusted qualities.

The brilliant look of these Paiste Alpha hi-hats is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new models such as these Alpha hi-hat cymbals to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

Paiste Alpha cymbals have developed a strong following in recent years and are today endorsed by numerous working drummers all over the world, such as Jeremy Spencer of Five Finger Death Punch, Jason Sutter with Chris Cornell, Dave Witte of Municipal Waste, Tommy Portimo of Sonata Arctica, and Steven Spence of Black Tide.

  • great cymbal

    As reviewed by bob on 6/18/2010

    GREAT Hi-Hats, you can not go wrong with the Paiste Alphas, although not pro grade cymbals such as the 2002, they are still great sounding and great for a semi pro drummer. GReat value overall

  • Good Buy!

    As reviewed by Andrew W on 11/2/2011

    Ive had these Hats for about 2 years and they have held up fine.The sound i think is just very Generic. Theres nothing super special about the sound or any mind blowing sounds you can get from them but all in all there a great pair of hi hats.They have a great slice sound too. I might reccomend them more for classic rock drumming or as a secondary pair of Hi-Hats (probley the 13 inch for that). I think these were a great buy though but think about it!
