A very loud and aggressive attack and explosive shatter.

This Paiste Alpha Rock China features a brilliant finish with a bright, full, and aggressive character-with a trashy edge. It has a medium range, and a fairly clear mix, making it a very strong and powerful China cymbal for all musical applications in louder playing 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 new 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 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 to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

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.

  • Okay!

    As reviewed by David on 4/25/2011

    Really, for the money, i think is a good china cymbals, it has a little but just a little trashy sound, we know it's not an oriental china or something, but it's okay! It has a medium decay, it's not that longer and not that shorter, it's looks awesome and again, for the money it's a good china, and it's something for hard hitters because (for a china cymbal) is thicker than most i've used... That's my opinion.

  • looks more than sound

    As reviewed by Alex1540 on 5/18/2010

    These new alpha cymbals are beautiful and they would look amazing on a set but its a shame that they dont really sound up to their appearance. This china isnt washy enough, the sustain lasts forever and overall they have a bad quality sound. But thats my taste, the cymbals you put on your set is entirely up to the player's taste. I really love Paiste but they can do better than this.
