Overview

The character of the Paiste Alpha Metal Crash Cymbal is very powerful, metallic, and icy shimmery with a trashy, dark edge. The cymbal has a wide range and a fairly dirty mix. It's a very strong and sturdy crash cymbal that can be used in many settings of today's metal music. Occasional crash/riding patterns are also possible with this type of cymbal.

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. This Metal Crash Cymbal from 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 Alpha Metal crash 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.

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

Top Notch Intermediate Cymbal

By Nicholas Gossic

from Tampa Bay, FL

I love Paiste and their sound, but I purchased the 20inch looking for a more heavier and darker crash. I got that and then some...it definitely has a lot of volume and sustain. Great for riding on too, will give you plenty of noise to fill up the room with. And of course it has that signature Paiste glassiness to it as well. The brilliant finish looks amazing and will light up your kit, especially outside in the sun. Value is excellent, sounds better than most intermediate cymbals in this price range and just as good as the more expensive ones.

Awesome Cymbal

By drummerkid

from riverview, fl

This crash is pretty great.The sound and look are top notch.Extremely powerful cymbal.The sound is extremely cutting but not necessarily overpowering.Nice bright attack and a bit of a dark decay.Defiantly a metal and rock cymbal. The feel is great i can definitely tell these crashes will last awhile.Thanks for making an awesome cymbal Paiste!
