Explosive, wild smashing mid-range attack, with a roaring and rebellious decay.

This Paiste Alpha Metal Splash Cymbal features a brilliant finish with a raw, aggressive sound character, and a fairly dark touch. With a medium range and a complex mix, this splash cymbal is perfectly suited for complexly layered and loud, aggressive music styles.

Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste 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 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 Paiste Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

Paiste Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new cymbal models 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.

    THE perfect Metal cymbal. Its crisp, clean, cuts through without being over powering, and nice unique sound. I've noticed that it sounds similar to Chris Adler's and Joey Jordason's splashes. I recamend this to every metal drummer, or anyone who wants a very unique sound!
