Created as a fusion of the fundamental characteristics of Signature and Traditionals. Dark Energy cymbals combine depth, darkness, total musicality, and complex harmonics with brilliance, richness and projection. In addition, their functional range encompasses the sheer impossible combination of ultimate dynamic control and strength in projection. New Signature models are ultimate cymbal creations that defy categorization. They represent the highest state of the art in Paiste cymbal sound and quality. New Signature cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century. These splash cymbals produce quick bursts of sound without being too dominant. Producing a beautiful blend of silvery splash sounds with a dark, breathy body, the Dark Energy splashes offer distinctive notes that add texture to any musical genre.
