the pst5 series really bring value and quality to entry level cymbals, overall this cymbal is made with quality has a nice bright sound would not recomend getting zildjian zbt cymbals not as livel as pst5s. has very nice volume when needing to play gigs. also sounds alright when crash it (very easy to crash).

When I bought this ride its was great for the first two months. It had a great ping on the bell and the ride overall itself was crisp. But then all of sudden it started to have a wicked overtone. It is just obnoxious. I have to play the cymbal with a mute on it so I don't hear that terrible sound. If you are on a budget it is a great cymbal. If not go with the Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride, Zildjian Sweet Ride, or any Sabian AA/HHX ride.

PST 5: BEST PAISTE SERIES

By Drumr07

from Chandler, Arizona

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

I've been using Paiste cymbals since November 2006 and i am still using them. This is the best ride cymbal I have played in my life. When it is hit, the sound goes very long. If you like that, buy it. I am in a band and this cymbal is my favorite on my drum set. I have 6 cymbals so being my best cymbal is great to give the band confidence. I have a PST 5 10" Splash I just got but those are the only two PST 5 cymbals I have. We got a discount at the store because we were low on cash and needed a hard rocking ride cymbal and fast. I am very young and I play drums everyday. I am very picky in cymbal choice. I have cymbals by Pearl, Wuhan, and of course Paiste. This is a shiny cymbal and has a great sound so buy it now! It works great with Vic Firth drumsticks.

WOW!

By Preston

from Wisconsin

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

This ride is the best I have ever tried. The greatness of this ride vs. the price is outstanding! I would say better than most Sabians. The Bell is perfect to just cut above the guitars and basses. When you hit on more of the outside, it has a long ring, but it sounds cool. Also, it can be used as an excellent crash as well! Great sound I won't be replacing this baby anytime soon. Oh, and it is pretty shiny and barely shows any stick marks!

Sweet

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

This isnt my first PST 5 cymbal so i wasnt to worried about quality...i have 13 hats 14 crash and an 18 crash/ride. I LOVE THESE cymbals! They are increadibly reliable and always sound great...ive had my THIN 14 crash for 6 months and no cracks just a bit of bending which sounds the absolute same and my hats and crash ride for a year and 2 months and absoltly nothing has happended to them...HIGHLY recommend these cymbals. the ride is loud and has a really long sustain but sounds terrific and is the perftect rose brondze color.

Best ride I've ever used

By Jonathan Parrott

from Prairie Grove AR.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

This is the best ride I've ever used! It's bell is great as well, it's real pingy even at the bottom! I've used a sabian medium ride and it sounded like a crash at the bottom. So buy this cymbal it's probably the best ride you'll find for the price

Darn good ride for its price.

By Eric

from Vineland, New Jersey

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

Bought this ride when i started playing a couple months ago. Got it for its cheap price and good name. Has a nice sounding bell with a clear cutting ping. Has a long sustain which kind of bothers me but others might like it, but overall a great ride cymbal for beginners and people on a tight budget.

Great Ride!

By Joshua Hull

from Greenwood, IN

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Ride:

The cymbals that came with my drum kit sounded like trash can lids, so they had to go. I first purchased Zildjian ZHT Hi Hats and Ride, but was not happy with the sound of the ride. Went to Guitar Center and fell in love with the sound of the Paiste PST ride. Even after trying out some of the more expensive ones, the PST 5 sounded the best. It has a nice sound and a nice sustain, without ringing on forever. While I was looking at this cymbal, I even had two more experienced drummers come up to me and tell me how much they like this ride.
