Overview

This Paiste Alpha Rock Crash features a brilliant finish with a very bright, full, glassy, and shimmering character. It has a wide range, clear mix, and fairly giving feel—a standard rock crash 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. 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.

Paiste Alpha rock Crashes

By Hayden Van Slooten

from Minnetonka, MN

Comments about Paiste Alpha Rock Crash, Brilliant:

I got a 14" version of this crash for on one of those promotional deals. It was a great crash for being free, and it is very cheap to buy it seperatly, but it did not fit with any of my other cymbals (Paiste Rudes). Also the tone wasn't really what I wanted; it was too brashy and metallic for my liking. But overall it was a great little accent to my playing to get for free.
