Paiste Heavy Cymbals
The world's hardest-hitting drummers are no strangers to the Paiste brand. In fact, Paiste heavy cymbals are preferred by countless legendary beat keepers, including Steve Asheim of Deicide, Charlie Benante of Anthrax and Paul Bostaph of Slayer. With names like that, you better believe you're in the right catalog for new heavy cymbals. Browse this selection and see for yourself; whether you need a new ride, hi-hat pair, crash, you name it - Paiste has your heavy cymbal needs covered, right here.
As soon as you dive in to this section, it will quickly become apparent that a great deal of time and effort was put into the visual appeal of Paiste heavy cymbals. Make no mistake, each and every heavy cymbal here sounds as incredible as it looks. Even more affordable cymbals like the PST 7 Heavy Crash and the PST 7 Heavy Hi-Hat Pair are capable of impressing the most meticulous stage veterans. You'll even come across signature heavy cymbals that are made in collaboration with famous players. For example, the Stewart Copeland Signature Blue Bell Ride was made to the exact specifications of The Police drummer himself. Stewart Copeland inspired millions with his unique playing technique and this ride will put a smile on the face of anyone who loves his style.
In addition to essential heavy cymbals like the ride, crash and hi-hat, Paiste also specializes in heavy accent cymbals. Need a new China? Check out the top-selling Rude China. Boasting a dark, full sound and a wide frequency range, this China is complex enough to diversify any drum repertoire and explosive enough to cut through any loud mix. Or how about the Rude Splash - the short, pronounced sound and "Mini-Crash" effect of this cymbal make it ideal for heavier genres.

After all, they've been a leading manufacturer of cymbals since 1906, and Paiste heavy cymbals are everything you'd expect and more from a company with such a hard-earned reputation.
