Overview

This 20" Paiste Alpha Metal Ride Cymbal features a brilliant finish with a metallic, strong, focused, and dynamic character. It has a fairly narrow range and a raw mix of frequencies. You'll get a heavy feel combined with a strong, glassy ping over an aggressive, icy wash with subtle undertones.

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 Paiste 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 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.

Loud cymbals

By Ryan Gore

from Northridge, California

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Metal Ride Cymbal:

I love these cymbals. The whole Paiste Alpha series. I started using them 2 years ago and won't stop. They're very durable and built strong. I love them because they always sound perfect when you hit them. They're loud and ring for a long time. I've been using the same Ride, Crash, and China for these past 2 years and I'm inlove with them. I would be using a second Alpha crash but I recently picked up a 2002 crash. I've used other cymbals in the past but nothing can compare to Paistes. I love using them. They look good and sound even better. They last a long time also.

In my opinion,

By Derrick Chamberlain

from McAllen, Texas.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Metal Ride Cymbal:

I like the way this sounds as a crash. The bell is the only true part that doesn't really fascinate me, besides that. All around, great intermediate ride.
